Button pressed for first private highway

The button was pressed for the first private highway: Cahit Turhan, General Manager of Highways, stated that they are planning to tender the connection roads of Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge with the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model by the end of the year. "We will make an announcement in July, after the approval of the Undersecretariat of Treasury."
Explaining that the construction of new roads is inevitable as the number of vehicles increases, Turhan said, “It is necessary to increase the standard of existing roads and to increase the number of lanes. Especially in the coming days, it is now on the agenda to put highways into service on main routes in order to create new capacity ”.
Stating that they are planning to tender the linked roads of Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge with the BOT model until the end of this year, Turhan stated that the tender preparation works have been completed, the decision of the High Planning Council (YPK) has been taken, and that they will be announced in July after the approval of the Undersecretariat of Treasury.
Turhan stated that they are planning to bid for Akyazı-Paşaköy on the European and Asian side of the Northern Marmara Motorway and Odayeri-Kınalı on the European side.
“In BOT projects, contractors calculate their planning for their own costs and how long the work can be done and submit their bids. We give 4 to 6 months for this. Sometimes the period can be extended in line with the demands of the companies. If nothing goes wrong, we plan to complete the tender at the end of the year. After the tender is completed, the company we will assign will complete the loan procurement works in 6 months. During this period, we give the company in charge the opportunity to start with its own resources. "
3 will be over in years
Explaining that they will start work on the remaining parts of the Northern Marmara Motorway in 2015, Turhan said, “The construction period we anticipate is three years after the start of the work. If the contractor completes early, this is his advantage. We race construction plus operating time. But if it remains after three years, we have criminal sanctions, ”he said.
Following the path to the completion of the first time Turhan states that a highway will be operated by a private company in Turkey, "the toll this road vehicles grade, according to the price ceiling will determine according to their class and the distance to be determined by the company. The ceiling price will be updated every year according to changing conditions, ”he said.
Stating that the article for free passage on the highway on holidays and special days will be included in the specification, Turhan said, “However, this article will not be binding. However, if the administration wishes, these roads can be used free of charge on holidays or on some special days, and they can block traffic. He can use these ways for other purposes. For example, we run the Eurasia marathon in Istanbul. The administration will have this authority in these ways ”.
