MB Crusher solutions for Dardanelles bridge in Turkey
It connects the Marmara Sea to the Aegean and, along the Bosphorus Strait, borders Europe and Asia. It is the Dardanelles, formerly called Ellesponto, about 62 km long, whose name derives from Dardania, Ancient land on the Asian shore of the Strait, which in turn is named after Dardano, the mythical son of Zeus and Elettra.
And in this land a mega project is starting: the construction of the Çanakkale 1915 Bridge (Turkish: Çanakkale 1915 Köprüsü) :
a suspension bridge situated at the western end of the Sea of Marmara between Gelibolu and Lapseki towns of Turkey's Çanakkale Province.
The bridge will have a total length of 3,869 m (12,694 ft). Its towers will be erected in the water. The approaching viaduct on the Lapseki side will be 650 m (2,130 ft) and the one on the Gelibolu side 900 m (3,000 ft) long. The construction of the bridge will be carried out by a consortium of South Korean Daelim and SK Group, and the Turkish Limak Holding and Yapı Merkezi, which won the tender. The contract for the construction was signed by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of South Korea and Minister of Transport, Maritime and Communication of Turkey.
The groundbreaking for the bridge took place on March 18, 2017, the anniversary of one of the Ottoman Empire's final victories, and take around five years to complete
