Bay Bridge unites two sides: Temporary walking path installation for the engineers and workers on the Bay Bridge will be started. The bands were also laid. More than half of the completed walking band and the merger between the two collar appeared.
In January between the bridge of Dilek in the Dilovası District of Kocaeli and the bridge of Hersek in the Altınova District of Yalova, the guide cables that will be used for the installation of the main cables to be used by the vehicles will be taken. Studies have occasionally disrupted due to severe storms and snowfall. Although there is a short delay in the program, a part of the temporary walking band that the engineers and workers will do is completed. The merger between the two collars began to appear clearly for the first time.
At the end of the year, the 4 towers will be the world's 254 large suspension bridge. Another stage in the bridge, the main deck where the vehicles will be placed on the main cables to be used in the shooting of the guide cables were finished in February. Recently, the study of the temporary walkway called 'Kedi yolu' was initiated. Engineers and workers will pull main cables that will carry the decks after completion of this road. Although it was planned to complete the placement of the decks by the end of May, the program could be slightly extended, especially due to the delays caused by the severe winter conditions in January and February.
When the Bay Bridge is completed at the end of the year, 3 will go to the departure and 3 arrivals with the total 6 lane. It will also receive the title of 'World's 4 largest suspension bridge'. When the bridge and highway project is completed, Istanbul-Izmir journey will be reduced to 3.5 hours and Gebze-Orhangazi road to 20 minutes.
