On days of heavy rains, the Batı Köprülü Junction in Kocaeli Dilovası district could be closed to traffic on the D-100 Highway, Istanbul and Ankara directions due to possible flooding. Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality ISU General Directorate teams working to eliminate this situation have come to an end in the works at the intersection. The project will cost approximately 2 million 100 thousand TL.
HORIZONTAL DRILLING IS COMPLETED
As part of the work, ISU teams completed the horizontal drilling in the joining branch of the intersection, which was used to return to Dilovası city center, and also completed the horizontal drilling in the south leg of the Western Junction. Within the scope of the project, a total of 135 meters of horizontal drilling was produced. A total of 310 meters of rainwater was produced. Teams are now building water intake structures in designated places at the intersection.
RAIN WATER WILL BE DISCHARGED TO LANGUAGE
With the work carried out, the horizontal bored rainwater line will prevent floods that may occur in the bridge intersection area in excessive precipitation. Rain water coming under the bridge with the line to be built will be discharged to Dil Creek.
D-100 CLOSED TO TRAFFIC DURING INTENSIVE RAIN
In Kocaeli, especially in the spring months, floods can occur in certain parts of the city. Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality, which wants to put an end to such situations, will carry out horizontal drilling and rainwater line manufacturing at the Batı Köprülü Junction in the D-100 Highway Dilovası district. With the work done, floods that occur during rainfall will be prevented and the traffic of the D-100 Highway in the Istanbul and Ankara directions will continue without interruption.
