The construction of the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, which will be the largest suspension bridge in the world when it is completed, continues during the 24 hour, while the installation of the curved suspension ropes and the main cable optimization studies continue.
According to the AA correspondent, rising concrete towers on both sides advanced from sea level up to a height of 304,5 meters. The installation of the scaffolding and anchorage elements to be used in the construction of the temporary walkway and main cable, which is also called the ele cat path ediy, is continuing.
The traction rope used for the construction of the cat and the main cable was completed. Total 59 and 4 steel deck section on the European side and 3 on the European side were installed for the bridge floor consisting of a total 7 giant deck.
The welded joint works are also continuing in the steel structures of Tuzla and Yalova. While the casting works of the tower and distribution saddles are completed at the relevant facility in Italy, testing and inspection procedures with complementary procedures are in progress.
Main cable manufacturing completed
The installation process of the oblique suspension ropes, which are one of the two systems that will carry the bridge together with the installation of steel decks, was started. The length of the 8.787 pieces with a total weight of 176 tons varies between 154 and 597 meters. The production of the 13 thousand ton main cable for the construction of the bridge was completed in about one year in a factory in South Korea. The cables were placed in the temporary storage area on the European side of the construction site. The installation of the crane and pulley system to be used in the construction of the main cable continues.
Rail transport will be the longest suspension bridge
This year 29 will be commissioned in October 3. The works on the bridge are followed with interest by architects and engineers in Turkey and abroad. Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, which will be the bridge of the firsts, will be the longest suspension bridge in the world with its 59 meter width and the world's largest, one thousand 408 meter main span with rail system. Another first bridge is the suspension bridge with the highest tower in the world with its height exceeding 322 meters. The bridge will ease the traffic load of Istanbul through the 8 lane vehicle road and the 2 line railway. The rail system on the bridge will carry passengers from Edirne to Izmit. Atatürk Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport and the new 3 with rail system to be integrated with Marmaray and İstanbul Metro. The airport will also be connected.
