Within the scope of the "Gebze District TEM Highway Bridges Connection Roads 1st Stage Construction Work", which will ease the traffic between Gebze OIZs and Gebze district center, sidewalks and guardrails are manufactured on the side roads.
Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality, which brings comfort to Kocaeli's transportation, continues its works rapidly, one of its giant projects, "Gebze District TEM Highway Bridges Connection Roads 1st Stage Construction Work". The project, which will reduce the traffic density between the OIZs and Gebze district center, continues uninterruptedly with pavement and car railings.
12 KILOMETER SIDE
While the bridges within the scope of the project are being built by the Highways, the side roads and participation branches are built by the Metropolitan Municipality Directorate of Science Affairs. Within the scope of the works, a total of 3 thousand 3 meters of side roads are being built, 150 thousand meters in the southern part and 6 thousand 150 meters in the northern part. The length of the road built with participation branches and other roads will be 12 kilometers.
PAVEMENT AND CARPET MANUFACTURING
Within the scope of the works, Metropolitan Municipality teams had completed the construction of the 56 meters long 3 meters high culvert for the stream that comes from Arapçeşme District and goes towards Kirazpınar Mahallesi with most of the binder asphalt pavements on the south side roads. Within the scope of the project, sidewalks and guardrails are now being manufactured on the side roads where many manufacturing and works have been completed.
TRAFFIC IN THE OIZ AREA WILL RELAX
In the Tembelova and Kirazpınar bridges on TEM Highway, which connects Gebze OIZ regions, Gebze district center and D-100 Highway, traffic density is experienced especially in the morning and evening hours. Within the scope of the project that Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality will implement jointly with the General Directorate of Highways, one-way continuous, side roads are being built parallel to the TEM Highway in the north and south. Turning points are being built to allow crossings between both side roads. Thus, all signalized intersections on the east-west axis will be eliminated. The project is expected to be completed in 500 days.
4 NEW BRIDGES ARE CONSTRUCTED
4 new bridges are being built within the scope of the project, which will greatly ease the transportation network in the region. Tembelova and Kirazpınar Bridges, which currently serve as 2 times 1 in the highway location between Kirazpınar Neighborhood and Sultan Orhan, İnönü and Arapçeşme Neighborhoods, will be demolished and rebuilt with 2 times 2 lanes. Also within the scope of the project, two new bridges with 2 times 1 lane to the west of Tembelova Bridge and 2 times 1 lane to the east of Kirazpınar Bridge are being built.
