Ilıcalı evaluated the 3rd bridge on TRT city radio

Ilıcalı evaluated the 3rd bridge on TRT city radio: AK Party Erzurum Deputy Prof. Dr. Mustafa Ilıcalı made a statement about Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and other mega projects on Istanbul TRT City Radio.
AK Party Erzurum Deputy Prof.Dr. Mustafa Ilıcalı answered the questions of Murat Kazanasmaz in the "Final Exit before the Bridge" Program he participated in Istanbul TRT City Radio. Ilıcalı gave information about Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and other mega projects; Turkey's 2023 target in line with the economic sense of these investments will provide power and transportation to Istanbul to breathe, he said.
Asked why there is a need for Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge when there are projects such as Kazanasmaz's 15 July Martyrs Bridge, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, Marmaray and the Eurasia Tunnel to be opened soon, Ilıcalı said, “As is known, there is a significant traffic density in Istanbul. 9 international transportation corridors with a length of 5 thousand 8 hundred km, which provide the passage from Asia to Europe, pass through Istanbul. Unfortunately, we do not have a sufficient network because the rail systems required for urban transportation in Istanbul start too late. In the last 14 years, the central government has been supporting Istanbul Municipality significantly. Our Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication has undertaken important duties. Imagine that when our President was the Mayor, the Taksim-Levent line, which was the first subway train, was opened and after this work, important developments were experienced in the name of the rail system. After the election of a mayor like Kadir Topbaş who knows the traffic of Istanbul, important steps are taken in terms of transportation in Istanbul. Being a center of attraction, Istanbul is experiencing transportation problems with its increasing population. As the rail system is also inadequate, the traffic is always busy and locked.

"With the 3rd bridge, 785 million dollars of loss will be prevented"
Stating that the cost of waiting trucks on the bridges is one billion lira, Ilıcalı said, “Heavy vehicles do not pass through the first bridge. Large vehicles passing through the 2nd bridge at certain hourly intervals cause financial losses. According to the figure announced by our Minister of Transport, Ahmet Arslan Bey, an economic loss of 785 billion 2 million dollars will be prevented with the opening of the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge. While the transit of heavy vehicles from the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge is provided, the first and the second bridges will serve mostly for urban transportation. Of course, when the 3rd Bridge opens on August 26, I am not saying that Istanbul's traffic problem will be completely solved. But it will make an important contribution. Economically, we will make the traffic flow safe in terms of shortening the transition times, in terms of the emissions we give to the air, in terms of accident costs. “He spoke.
Ilıcalı on the question of Turkey's economy contributed to the bridge, build-operate models with Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, the economic return was announced with the following sentence: "The cost of the bridge is an American 2buçuk billion dollars. A 95 km long highway project. The builder of this bridge will operate with the build-operate model. After a certain time, it will be public. The economic contribution of the bridge is to prevent a total economic loss of one billion 450 million dollars, of which 135 million US dollars is the loss of labor, from energy of approximately one billion 785 million US dollars per year, as stated by our Minister of Transport, Ahmet Arslan. In other words, the current cost of the bridge is 5 billion liras. "
"Bridge toll is quite reasonable"
Stating that the excess fees to cross the bridge are included in the news of the newspaper, Server Kazanasmaz said that the price of Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge is reasonable compared to the toll fees of the bridges in Europe, and said, “This bridge is not just a bridge. Together with the connecting roads, it reaches a 95 km long highway. This place was built using the build-operate-transfer method without using a lira resource from the public. It costs 2 and a half billion US dollars. If we evaluate from this point of view, we will see that the price is very reasonable. " said.
"The 3rd bridge will complement Marmaray's missing capacity"
“Will there be both freight and passenger transportation on the bridge? With which modes of transport it will be integrated. " Deputy Ilıcalı said, “This bridge will make a great contribution to freight traffic. It will complete the missing capacity of Marmaray. The most important feature of the rail system is that it will be integrated with Sabiha Gökçen on the Anatolian Side, the 3rd airport on the European side and other metro systems, and will make a great contribution to national and international passenger freight trains and urban transportation.
