Osman Gazi Bridge

The Osman Gazi Bridge is located at the Eastern end of the Sea of Marmara, close to İzmir and approximately 50 kilometres from Istanbul, Turkey. It is the second largest suspension bridge in the world by length of central span. Crossing the Bay of İzmit, the bridge and connecting highway provides 3 lanes of traffic in either direction. The total length of the bridge is 2.8 kilometres with a main span of 1,500 metres.

The bridge is a striking feature within the local landscape and seascape. Its constituent components harmonize well with one another in terms of their geometric configuration, color, and finish.

The bridge girder, with its aerodynamically refined deck edge, give the impression of an elegant ribbon of motorway suspended above the water, before transitioning over the transition piers and approach spans to land.

Motorists crossing the bridge get beautiful views of the towers, and their views toward the surrounding hills and landscape will not be impeded or blocked by the very transparent windscreen structure.

 

Osman Gazi-broen

Osman Gazi-broen er den næststørste hængebro i verden med et hovedspænd på 1,500 meter. Den er placeret i den østlige ende af Marmarahavet, tæt på byen Izmir og cirka 50 kilometer fra Istanbul. Broen, der krydser Izmir-bugten og forbindes med motorvejen, giver mulighed for tre baners trafik i begge retninger. Den totale længde af broen er 2,8 kilometer.

Bilister, der krydser Osman Gazi-broen, har en smuk udsigt til de enkle, karakteristiske tårne; den transparente vindskærm gør, at udsigten bevares over det omkringliggende bakkede landskab.

Broens kantbjælke med sin aerodynamiske form og opbygning giver indtryk af elegant bånd svævende over vandet. Samtidig relaterer bropillerne og ankerblokkene sig til hinanden og bevirker at broen syner let og elegant.
