Ground Survey Works for Çanakkale Bosphorus Bridge Started: The ground survey study has been initiated by the General Directorate of Highways for the bridge planned to be built in Çanakkale Strait.
It is reported that the bridge to be constructed between the Şekerkaya location of Lapseki district of Çanakkale and Sütlüce district of Gelibolu district will be one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. Stating that ground survey drilling work has started for the Çanakkale Bosphorus Bridge, AK Party Lapseki Mayor Eyüp Yılmaz said, “We have learned from the authorities that we will descend 150-200 meters below sea level. Currently, ground surveys are being carried out both at sea and on land. The first study for the bridge legs to be placed between Lapseki Şekerkaya and Gelibolu Sütlüce is now a ground study. The width of the Bosphorus, where the bridge will be built, will be entered by 3 meters and 600 meters by land. There will be a hanging section in 800 thousand 3 meters. Our MPs follow the matter closely and inform us. ”
Noting that there is a vehicle density that takes days to pass from Anatolia to Europe, President Yılmaz said, “Our citizens are waiting for hours to cross. With the bridge construction, this problem will disappear. We are already taking our measures in the district for the population density of the bridge to be built as a municipality. We are about to bring natural gas, we handled the drinking water problem for 30-40 years, sewage treatment is under construction. We are making our plans according to 30 years later. ”
