We care more about these side effects. Fuel and time savings are very important. When the Istanbul-Izmir Motorway is completely finished, the vehicle traffic we expect from Osmangazi Bridge is 40 thousand. Why is that? Because it is our expectation to facilitate the lives of approximately 25 million people living in that region, to increase their trade and to create their own vehicle traffic. As everyone knows, we have completed more than 100 kilometers by the end of this year, but 284 kilometers will be completed by the end of 2018. It will have created its main traffic then.

Therefore, we are aware of this, that our people can travel more comfortably, do not waste fuel by wandering around the gulf, contribute to the national economy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions… When we do all these, we have worked on the Osmangazi Bridge for a long time, a report has been prepared. Within the scope of the report, we made a decision from the High Planning Council. As of tomorrow, we are providing a discount of about 25 percent on the Osmangazi Bridge and the fee will be 65,65 lira. While we have to raise the fee of approximately 89 TL since the beginning of 2017, on the contrary, we are reducing the fee. We are driving three things here; If you consider the encouragement of the use of the bridge, more importantly, the fuel consumption of our citizens by wandering around the bay, the wear of their vehicles, the risk they take, we will make the life of the citizen easier.
