As such, it is well understood that the first two bridges between the two sides of Istanbul are influenced by the city. and maybe 3. provide a more conscious assessment of the bridges.
- Considering the multi-dimensional evaluation of the Bridge Project under physical, environmental, social, legal and economic topics and taking into account the location of the necessary transportation system for Istanbul, a healthier and more groundbreaking result will be demonstrated in contrast to the existing assumptions and decision-making processes of central and local governments. .
This report study, which tries to reveal whether the source of Istanbul's transportation problem is in need of a new bridge and a defensive language, can be solved by a comprehensive system approach to the problems encountered in transportation and to replace the new highway bridges in the throat passages. is a product of a common will that demonstrates the existence of alternative and more sustainable solutions to the environment and human life. 3, which was founded under the leadership of İstanbul Branch of TMMOB Chamber of City Planners.
