If you've opened on the eve of a feast, the percentage passed on the 170 warranty. We are currently collecting 25 as a percentage of the guarantee on Osmangazi Bridge. In fact, the traffic passes through the Osmangazi Bridge as much as we guarantee, but because we do it over expensive, foreign exchange, we reduced the fee to one third to avoid paying such a high amount of money to our citizens. We are currently receiving 44,5 dollars plus VAT as a toll from the bridge where we have to buy 15 dollars.
