Annual Bridge in Izmir Renewed and Became Resistant to Disasters

Izmir Metropolitan Municipality renovated and put into service the 60-year-old Kemalpaşa Nif Stream Bridge, which causes floods during heavy rains and may pose a risk of collapse in a possible earthquake. The vehicle bridge, which will facilitate transportation to the district center, was rebuilt in a disaster-resistant manner.

Mayor of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Tunç SoyerKemalpaşa Nif Stream Bridge, which was completed in line with the aim of creating resilient cities, was opened to traffic. The bridge, which was completed by the Department of Technical Affairs of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, connects the center of Kemalpaşa to the Ankara asphalt via Nif Stream and serves as a transportation route to Sütçüler District. The 35-meter-long vehicle bridge consists of two lanes, one going and one coming.

It will facilitate district transportation

Stating that the bridge is an alternative route connecting Kemalpaşa center to Ankara asphalt, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Technical Affairs Department Head Hamdi Ziya Aydın said, “On the other hand, the bridge also facilitates access to the Indoor Sports Hall, district stadium and cemetery. "At the same time, it makes a great contribution to our farmers because it passes through agricultural lands," he said.

60-year-old bridge redesigned against natural disasters

Aydın said, “The old bridge, which was built about 60 years ago, had 2 spans and due to the middle abutment in the stream bed, the stream section narrowed and the bed overflowed, causing floods in the surrounding area. At the same time, the bridge, which completed its economic life, was a bridge that could cause serious problems in the event of an earthquake. With this arrangement we made, we made it earthquake resistant. We opened it to the use of our citizens as two lanes, one going and one coming. "We will continue our work at full speed with the aim of creating a resilient city," he said.
