Second blocks were placed on the tower caissons of the 1915 Dardanelles Bridge built in the Dardanelles and the feet rose one more step.
18 March The construction of the 2017 Çanakkale Bridge, which was laid in March 2022 and targeted to be opened in 1915, is under construction.
When the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge, built between Çanakkale Strait and Gallipoli's Sütlüce and Lapseki's Şekerkaya, is completed, the 2023 meter main span will receive the title of “the longest span suspension bridge in the world”. 1915 Çanakkale Bridge will be the as highest suspension bridge in the world X with its 333 meter towers.
1915 In August last year, 800 tower blocks, each weighing 4 tons, were placed over the tower caissons dipped into the sea on the sides of the Çanakkale Bridge on two continents. After the first blocks placed on the caissons, the feet of the bridge began to be seen. Last night, one of the second blocks was placed on the foot of the bridge on the Gallipoli side. Today, the first block was placed on the bridge pillar on the Lapseki side. Thus, the feet of 1915 Çanakkale Bridge rose one more step. Ships crossing the Dardanelles during the study were warned to watch under 10 knots instead of 8 knots. Between the bridge legs on both sides the tie-bar was assembled the previous day with the help of a large crane.
Bridge blocks will continue to rise with new blocks to be placed on the tower caissons dipped into the sea. 318 meter bridge towers will be completed which will take the colors of the Turkish flag after all the blocks have been placed. The top of the 18 meter high towers, representing 318 Mart, the anniversary of the Çanakkale Naval Victory, will also be representing Seyit Onbaşı's artillery projectile that he put on the barrel during the Battle of Çanakkale.
