Description

The Second Bosphorus Bridge was on the No. 2 Peripheral road connecting the two sides of Istanbul to each other and used by approximately 200,000 vehicles every day. As the First Bosphorus Bridge was closed to truck traffic, this bridge had a major importance especially for the economy of Istanbul. Therefore, this bridge needed to be kept operational under any circumstances. Services provided by Miyamoto Turkey included quality control, project management, construction supervision services, and the rearrangement of design and erection documents according to local conditions for tower reinforcement in order to prevent a collision between tower and deck.
