Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge crossing price is 120 TL: Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge is expected to be opened later this year. The bridge toll continues to rise due to the rising dollar before it is opened. The transition price of the bridge is based on 120 TL,
Construction of the Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge, which is the most important crossing point of the Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir Motorway Project, which will reduce Istanbul-Izmir to 3,5 hours, continues rapidly. After the bridge legs with a height of 252 meters were completed, ropes began to be pulled. The bridge, which will take 1,5 hours between Dilovası and Altinova to 6 minutes, will be passed by paying a fee of 115 TL according to today's dollar rate. The rapid rise in the dollar will increase the bridge toll. If there is no problem in the works, the bridge can be crossed in December.
The assembly of 4 meter high towers at the Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge, which will be the 252th largest suspension bridge in the world when it is completed, was completed at the end of last year. In the bridge, another rope, which was used to pull the main ropes on which the vehicles will pass, was used to pull the main ropes. During this shooting, the Gulf was closed to ship traffic. Placement of the decks on the bridge to be used as the road through which vehicles pass, continues from the feet on the ground. Until the end of May, the placement of the decks will be finished. When completed at the end of the year, the bridge, which will serve with 3 lanes and 3 arrivals with a total of 6 lanes, will also become the 4th largest suspension bridge in the world. The bridge will have reduced the Istanbul-Izmir highway to 3,5 hours and the Gebze-Orhangazi road to the shortest time. At the same time, the confluence will decrease a little more, especially during the summer and holidays, those who want to spend the holiday outside Istanbul on the land routes and ferry ports.
The groundbreaking ceremony of the bridge was held on October 29, 2010. The transition fee of the bridge at that time was announced as 35 dollars + VAT. The bridge toll is still $ 35; However, when the transition price is announced, the dollar rate is 1.43 and today it is 2.61 TL. With the price announced in 2010, citizens will be able to cross the Gulf for 60 TL, while the passage price of the bridge is based on 120 TL according to today's rate. If the increase in the dollar cannot be prevented, it seems that the bridge toll will be quite high.
