BENEFITS OF THE PROJECT

When the 1915Çanakkale Bridge and Motorway is realized,

  • Turkey’s “Vision 2023” will attain one of its principal objectives.

    The Project will play an important role in its target towards improvement of motorways across the country as designated in Vision 2023 Master Plan, the statement of Turkey’s push for national development.

  • Motorway integration of Western Turkey will be completed.

    The Project constitutes the pivotal central segment of the 324-km Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Savaștepe Motorway Project, thus tying the links of the motorway chain encircling the Marmara Sea when it connects to the Gebze-İzmir Motorway.

  • A new alternative to the Bosphorus passage.

    The heavy transit traffic load exposed by İstanbul between Europe and Anatolia will be eased. The traffic load currently concentrated in Western Anatolia across the İstanbul-centered west-east axis will be balanced toward a southerly route along the western shores of the Marmara Sea.

  • Industry, business and service sectors in Thrace and Western Anatolia will gain momentum.

    Faster and cost-effective transportation will strengthen the economic activity and social bonds in the region.

  • Domestic and international tourism will be energized.

    Project will have a positive impact on commercial relations and cultural interaction with Europe and Balkans, especially with Greece and Bulgaria. Connection of the Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Savaştepe Motorway to the Gebze-İzmir Motorway near Balıkesir will shorten the distance between the European countries and the tourism centres such as İzmir, Aydın and Antalya.

  • Delivery time and costs will be reduced in logistics, efficiency of foreign trade will be enhanced.

    Project will minimize vehicle management costs and travel time. Transportation restrictions of heavy vehicles will be eliminated, hence import and export business will grow.

  • Project will provide employment during the construction and operation phases.

    By employing thousands of individuals throughout the construction and operation periods and by stimulating various industries, Project will significantly contribute to the Turkish economy.

  • Çanakkale will embrace a monumental project befitting its glorious history and its standing in the 21st century.

    Çanakkale will be crowned with a visually appealing and modern suspension bridge matching the city’s prominence and dynamics.
