In the "Gebze District TEM Highway Bridges Connection Roads 1st Stage Construction Work" project, which will ease the transportation between the city center of Gebze district of Kocaeli and OIZs, the side road widening and construction of the new Kirazpınar Bridge continues. The traffic in the region will become more regular when the project, where the General Directorate of Highways has built bridges and Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality has built side roads, is completed.
EXTENSION MADE ON NORTH SIDE ROADS
Within the scope of the project, the teams of the Department of Science Affairs carry out road widening work, especially in the old narrow parts of the northern side roads. On the bridges under the responsibility of the General Directorate of Highways, the new Kirazpınar Bridge is currently being built. In addition, many works such as stone walls, electrical infrastructure and pavement are under construction within the project.
NEW KIRAZPINAR BRIDGE IS BUILT
The teams of the Metropolitan Municipality and the General Directorate of Highways, which have overcome the difficult processes in the project since the day it started, are carrying out another important stage. The Kirazpınar Bridge, which has been serving in the region for years and is insufficient in today's traffic, is demolished and a new one is built in its place. After the construction of the new Kirazpınar Bridge within the scope of the project, the Tembelova Bridge will be demolished and rebuilt. Two new, wider and more modern bridges will serve in place of both collapsed and to be demolished bridges. At the eastern and western ends of the project, the Link Road 1 and 4 bridges, which were previously built from scratch, were completed and offered to the citizens.
BRIDGES, HIGHWAYS, SIDE ROADS ARE BUILDING IN METROPOLITAN
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.
TRAFFIC IN THE OIZ AREA WILL RELAX
In the Tembelova and Kirazpınar bridges on the TEM Highway, which connects Gebze OIZ regions and Gebze district center and the D-100 Highway, there was a heavy traffic especially in the morning and evening hours. Within the scope of the project jointly implemented by Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality 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, when the project is completely finished, all signalized intersections on the east-west axis will be eliminated.
