Turkey's entering the last bend in many huge projects, this time from the new projects and the budget will be provided with a huge gain. To date, heavy vehicles from Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge (FSM) could only switch 14 hours at certain times of the day. With the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, heavy vehicles will be able to pass 24 hours. In particular, with the Osman Gazi Bridge, a total of 1.5 hours will be saved when Istanbul-Bursa, Istanbul-Izmir, Istanbul-Eskisehir and the approximate 10 hour pass around the gulf are calculated. This time, Yavuz Sultan Bridge 24 hours can pass through the heavy vehicles added to the total 20 hours of the drivers will have won. It is stated that the Osman Gazi Bridge, which was built for the Gulf crossing that will facilitate Istanbul to many cities of Anatolia, saved 2 hours from Istanbul-Bursa distance, 5.5 hours from İzmir-İstanbul distance and 1.5 hours from İstanbul-Eskişehir distance. In case of strolling around the gulf instead of the bridge, it will take about one and a half hours to get to Istanbul and 6 minutes will take place after the bridge is built.
5 BILLION TL SAVING
Giant structures will also bring economic benefits to citizens. Osman Gazi Bridge, which will drop between Istanbul and Izmir in 3.5 hours, is expected to save 650 million dollars a year. At least 300 million vehicles are expected to pass through Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, which will have a capacity of 110 thousand vehicles per day. It is envisaged that the annual loss of 2.5 billion Turkish lira resulting from the loss of fuel and workforce caused by loading 3 times the capacity of the first and second bridges will be eliminated with the third bridge. Thus, the Gulf Bridge and the 3rd Bridge will prevent an economic loss of approximately 3 billion liras.
