Towards the end of the İzmit Bay Crossing Bridge: The end of the Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge, which is the most important crossing point of the Gebze-Orhangazi-Izmir Motorway Project which will bring Istanbul-Izmir between 3,5 hours, is nearing the end.
The end of Izmit Bay Crossing Bridge, which is the most important crossing point of Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir Motorway Project which will reduce the time between Istanbul and Izmir to 3,5 hours, is nearing the end. The final deck of the bridge is planned to be placed within a few days.
The Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir (Izmit Gulf Crossing and Connection Roads) Motorway Project, which is tendered by the General Directorate of Highways under the Build-Operate-Transfer model, covers the 384 kilometer, including the 49 kilometer highway and the 433 kilometer linkage road. One of the most important steps of this project is the construction of the İzmit Bay Crossing Bridge.
After the completion of the bridge towers, the work for laying the main cable between the two collars began in February. The way to lay the main cable after the guide cable was pulled was broken due to an accident in March and caused the Izmit Gulf to be shut down for some time. The cat path that was broken by experts from Japan was removed.
After the parts were placed on the bridge towers that caused the accident, they were rebuilt abroad and the cat road was constructed. The last deck on the bridge was replaced by a giant floating crane. The main cable installation on the bridge is finished. Now the 35 meter 93 is expected to be put in a few days to the last decks in width. Between the bridge bridge between the bridge and the bridge between the bridge between the bridge between the viaducts will be put between the last. Then, the construction of the bridge will be completed by other works.
Once completed, the 3 bridge and 3 arrivals will serve the total 6 lane and the bridge will also be the world's largest 4 suspension bridge. Bridge, Istanbul-Izmir highway 3,5 hours, Gebze-Orhangazi road will be reduced to the shortest time. At the same time, especially during the summer months of holiday holidays, those who want to spend the holidays outside Istanbul, highways and ferry piers will be reduced, a little more.
