Kayseri Derevenk Bridge, which was manufactured by Freysaş using the balanced console method, was put into service with the opening ceremony held by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the accompanying delegation.
Opening date 31 December The project, planned as 2019, was completed about half a month ago thanks to the innovative construction methods used. The opening of Derevenk Viaduct was realized by President Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN. Minister of Transport and Infrastructure M. Cahit TURHAN, Minister of Environment and Urbanization Murat KURUM, Minister of National Education Ziya SELÇUK, Minister of National Defense Hulusi AKAR, General Director of Highways Abdulkadir URALOĞLU and MPs, bureaucrats and citizens attended the opening ceremony.
With the introduction of Derevenk Viaduct, one of the important crossing points of Kayseri South Ring Road, the safe flow of transit traffic and quality transportation connection with the surrounding provinces were ensured.
The Southern Ring Road Project provides transit transportation between Nevşehir, Niğde, Aksaray and Malatya and Kahramanmaraş provinces to the east of Kayseri, without entering into urban traffic. When the project was put into service, the connection between Kayseri and Talas district with the east was ensured by the shortest route with high standards, and 3 km between Pınarbaşı-Talas was shortened. By increasing the geometric and physical characteristics of the road, travel time was reduced by 20 minutes, while the exhaust emissions of the vehicles to the environment were reduced, and maintenance, operation, fuel and depreciation expenses were contributed to the national economy.
