The Gulf Crossing Bridge will save 650 million dollars a year: Work continues on the Izmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge, which constitutes the biggest leg of the Gebze-Orhangazi-Izmir Highway Project, which will reduce the transportation time between Istanbul and Izmir from 9 hours to 3,5 hours.
Work continues on the Izmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge, which is the fourth largest suspension bridge in the world with the largest span.
The AA team viewed the works on the bridge, which constitutes the largest leg of the Gebze-Orhangazi-Izmir Highway Project, which will reduce the transportation time between Istanbul and Izmir from 9 hours to 3,5 hours.
In the works for the bridge, which will reduce the duration of the gulf crossing to 6 minutes, the towers, whose heights reach 252 meters, gave a new silhouette to the Gulf of Izmit.
The bridge, which is the necklace of the Izmit Bay, made the districts of Karamürsel, Dilovası, Körfez and Gebze a center of attraction.
"It is predicted to save 650 million dollars a year"
The construction period of the Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir Highway build-operate-transfer project was determined to be 7 years. The construction works of the Gebze-Gemlik section of the Izmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge are planned to be completed and opened to traffic next year.
The advantages that the whole highway will shorten the distance to the 95 mileage according to the current state route are calculated in the feasibility studies, resulting in the 8-10 hour of 3-3,5 hours to be reduced to 650-XNUMX hours and in return XNUMX million dollars will be saved.
