Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge will be opened in March: It has been reported that Izmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge is expected to be operational at the end of March.
Yalova's Altınova District Governor Nurullah Kaya said that the İzmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge is expected to be operational at the end of March as part of the Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir Highway Project.
Kaya, who examined the bridge works, reminded that a rupture occurred in the section called "catwalk", which was created for cable assembly, last March.
CAT WAY REPLACED
Reminding that the rupture caused by the adverse weather caused great damage, Kaya said, “As a result of this damage, there was an understanding and consciousness in the public that there would be some trouble in the works for a period of time. However, with the efforts and extraordinary works of both the relevant consortium and contractor companies, all of the catwalk materials were downloaded and replaced with new ones in a short time ”.
TO OPERATE IN MARCH
Kaya stated that they have regained the level of March after the works carried out and said, “The lowest level of the catwalk is 74 meters above the sea and the highest point is 202 meters, which is the top part of the tower. As required by the contract, the bridge was thought to be operational by the end of December. The bridge is expected and expected to be operational at the end of March due to that work accident, ”he said.
