With the Bay Crossing Project, İzmir's traffic will flow at the speed of 'Lightning' ”.

We cannot thank enough to our Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım, the architect of this project, ”he said.

Project call to Metropolitan

Izmir Ring Road, in order to relieve urban traffic, especially from the existing south line, Balçova, Uzundere, Karabağlar, Gaziemir and Buca districts north, Bus Station, Bornova, Karşıyaka, Çiğli and Menemen direction was made to connect seamlessly. Vehicles coming from Aydın Karşıyaka The traffic, especially in Altınyol, due to the fact that they were going in the direction of the business, became more intense when the business entrance and exit was added.

The project gained momentum after the AK Party government came to power and Binali Yıldırım became the Minister of Transport and was completed and put into service in 2007.
