The Nissibi Bridge, which was built on the Atatürk Dam and will connect Adıyaman-Kahta-Siverek-Diyarbakır, has come to an end. The two sides of the bridge will meet with the placement of the six meter long last segment.

With the impoundment in the Atatürk Dam in 1992, the road and bridge connecting Adıyaman-Kahta-Siverek-Diyarbakır were flooded. After the road connecting the eastern and western provinces was flooded, the people of the region suffered economic and cultural losses. Due to the dam pond, transportation in the region began to be provided by primitive ferryboats. The people of the region, especially the districts of Kahta and Siverek, which have cultural and economic ties, suffered economically.
20 years after the capture of Atatürk Dam water, the bridge started with the order given by the Prime Minister of the time, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the transportation of Hakkari, Bitlis, Siirt, Şırnak, Batman, Mardin, Van and Diyarbakır provinces to the western provinces via Adıyaman will be provided. The road to Adıyaman, which is a dead-end street, will be opened with the bridge. The distance from Diyarbakır to Kahta district will be reduced by 110 kilometers. The people of the region pointed out that the Nissibi Bridge is very important and expressed their happiness as the grievances experienced for years will come to an end. Turkey's third largest bridge that the Siverek-Kahta show the importance it attaches to being done between the states of the region, emphasizing the people of the region, 'solution process' and in the region together emphasis would bring economic contribution of positive developments. The region, which has a high potential in terms of historical and cultural tourism, will gain momentum with the construction of the Nissibi Bridge and the bridge will contribute to the socioeconomic development of the region.
Şamil Gülen, 9th Regional Director of Highways, underlined that the Nissibi Bridge cost 80 million TL, but this money will return to the country's budget within 10 years. Stating that the citizens' transportation grievances will be eliminated, Şamil Gülen said: “Due to the Atatürk Dam on the Euphrates River, our Diyarbakır-Siverek-Kahta-Adıyaman road was revenge years ago. Transportation was provided by primitive ferry during the day, periodically. If a citizen was going to go from Siverek to Kahta, he waited at least half an hour, sometimes an hour. As such, those who went to Adıyaman were going by extending their way over Siverek-Bozova. This was disrupting traffic and wasting time. The citizen was facing serious trouble. "
Explaining that the foundation of the bridge, which was prepared by Turkish engineers and architects, was laid in 2012 and came to an end on the bridge, Gülen completed his words as follows: “There is one last segment. I hope it will be assembled after the 20th of December and traffic will be provided on foot. The asphalt and lighting will take two months, and we'll probably open it up to vehicles before spring. Our citizen who goes from Diyarbakır to Kahta will take 110 kilometers less. It will gain an hour and a half in terms of time. The distance of the driver to Adıyaman will also be reduced by at least 45 kilometers. We cost this place for 80 million TL. This will return to the country's budget, along with fuel and other inputs, within 80 million 10 years. It will become a plus at the end of 10 years. Historical places can be visited here. The blind spot will become active. The victimization of our citizens will be remedied.
