Cables were towed Izmit Bay merged

Cables were pulled Izmit Bay united: One of the most important steps was taken in the Izmit Bay Bridge, which is the most important leg of the Gebze-Orhangazi İzmir Highway Project, which will reduce the Izmir road trip to 3.5 hours. A guide was drawn to connect the main cobbles to carry the decks where the vehicles will pass. In this way, the two sides of the Gulf were united. It will be 6 minutes to cross the Izmit Bay from the suspension bridge that will end at the end of the year.
The guide cables were started to be used in the operation of the robots that will process the main cobbles that will carry the decks to pass the vehicles. These guide cables, which were first lowered by the tugboats, were then stretched between the two towers and the left side of the bridge was connected to the two sides even though it was symbolic. At the moment, one side of the drawn guide cable draw ends will be created 2 thousand 682 meter-long main cables.
After the completion of the cables on the other side, the main cables to be transported to the Gulf of Izmit will be used to transport the vehicles in 6 minutes. The main cable draw will be made by winding the 330 thousand meter long thin cables by the robot that will move on this guide cable.
If there is no glitch in the program, the main cables will be completed in February and the placement of the decks will be completed by the end of May. When completed by the end of the year, the bridge, which will serve with 3 lanes and 3 arrivals in total, will receive the title of the 6th biggest suspension bridge in the world.
The bridge will take the Istanbul-Izmir highway to 3,5 hours and Gebze-Orhangazi road to 20 minutes. At the same time, especially in the summer months, holiday holidays, those who want to spend outside Istanbul in the highways and ferry piers iizdiham will be slightly reduced.
