The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process continues. In the evaluations in İzmir public opinion, the rate of support to the project reached 80 percent. Most of our citizens of Izmir have the view that the project will be very useful for our city.
With a compromise that suits İzmir, we want to bring this project to our city by taking the positive contributions of everyone and everyone. Our Minister, Binali Yıldırım, underlines that nothing will be done despite Izmir and the people of Izmir. Whenever Izmir wants, whenever it says 'ok', the process will accelerate. ”
Stating that the project, which will start at the 2nd Main Jet Üsttü Mevkii in Çiğli, will be provided to Üçkuyular and Narlıdere via the Izmir Bay, Kaya said, “The Izmir Gulf Crossing Project is currently increasing in the future along the Altınyol and Ring Road. The bottleneck and traffic jam will end. With the completion of the project, the traffic from the northern axis of İzmir will be accessed to the southern axis of the Izmir Bay before entering the city. When the project is completed, the journey time of 70 minutes will decrease to 10 minutes.
When the approximately 12 km long Gulf Crossing Project is completed, the distance will be shortened by 31 km compared to the 19 km long Coastal Road and 52 km compared to the 40 km long Ring Road. The project is foreseen as a 12 km highway and a 16 km rail system tram, in this context, it is proposed as a bridge on 4.2 km legs in the north (200 meters as a suspension bridge on the gulf scanning channel), 800 meters of artificial island and 1.8 km of immersed tube tunnel. A safer and more comfortable transportation will be provided and tourism activities will develop. He will contribute to the industrial and industrial development of the city. ”
Stating that the gulf will be crossed by a bridge in the project, which will connect both sides of Izmir with a similar tunnel system of Marmaray, Kaya emphasized that the visual richness of the gulf will increase with the "Moon-Star Artificial Island" and "Gulf Bridge". Reminding that the project has been described as the “Crazy Project of Izmir” by the public in some parts, Kaya said, “We have brought great works to the country for 14 years and we have undersigned great investments. We all know that our Minister, Binali Yıldırım, is the architect of big projects that the world looks at with envy.
Today, 6,5 million vehicles have passed through the Konak Tunnel since its opening. Adnan Menderes Airport Domestic Terminal has been used by 16 million passengers since its opening. The construction of the 3rd Bridge in Istanbul has been completed, Marmaray serves without any problems. Completion of the construction has exceeded 3,5 percent in the highway project, which will reduce the Izmir-Istanbul to 50 hours. These are always big projects. Mr. Minister Binali Yıldırım will bring a necklace to İzmir with this project.
The two sides of Izmir will be connected. The project includes a tube tunnel similar to Marmaray and an artificial island with a Moon-Star motif. Of course, İzmir will have gained a new tourism area. In the past, İzmir was the second after Istanbul. We need to move İzmir to the second place again. The number of works that were started or completed in 60 projects, which we have prepared for İzmir, costing 35 billion liras, has reached 25. 10 of them are at the project stage. When all these projects take place in 2023, we will encounter a completely different Izmir. Our citizens of İzmir are worthy of the best and most beautiful of everything ”.




    1. Do not be sorry, but Izmir does not need such an investment. Anyway, whether you come from Uşak, Manisa or Çanakkale direction, you can go uninterruptedly in front of Çeşme when you enter the ring road. In addition, there are two rail systems integrated at Halkapınar and Hilal stations to reach Aliağa today and Fahrettin Altay from Torbalı direction. In the future, it will reach Urla. Besides, if you do not want to go by the ring road. You can come to Bostanlı pier from the highway and come to Üçkuyu from there by ferry, and from there you can immediately go to Çeşme by taking the highway. The need of Izmir is a second airport that will be accessible by rail system with Manisa, Turgutlu and Akhisar in the north. Such an investment will save the north of Izmir from its stepchild position.
