“We expect four to be done”
Nail Uğurlu, who is a truck driver, said, “We look forward to the construction of the bridge and the highway. I carry fish, when the weather is bad, the ferry doesn’t work. This time, we have to go through Bursa, our road is getting longer. The construction of the bridge will be a benefactor for us. The amount of usage of our fuel increases when we go through Bursa. Every citizen especially wants to build the bridge and highway, especially buses and truckers. ”
“WE WANT TO COMPLETE THE PROJECT ASAP”
Expressing that the project is a great convenience for citizens, Hızır İslamoğlu said, “We want the project to be completed as soon as possible. With the shortening of the road and the low fuel of the vehicles, it is useful to make it in every aspect. Ferries are canceled when the weather is bad, but not when the bridge is built. We go to Çanakkale via Thrace. We use the Tekirdağ, Malkara, Gallipoli Çanakkale route. You will not use the ferry, you will cross the bridge, a great benefactor. We are waiting for the nation to benefit the nation as soon as possible. ” The towers and connections of the bridge will be painted in red and white, the colors of the Turkish flag. It will be designed to represent the cannonball that Seyit Onbaşı dropped into the barrel at the top of the 333 meter high towers on both sides. With its middle span of 2023 meters, 770 meters of side openings, 365 and 680 meters of approach viaducts, the total length of the first suspension bridge of the Dardanelles is planned to be 4,608 meters.
