Immersion of 40.000 tons foundations with 25 m steel shafts for the Izmit Bay Bridge.
The COWI designed Izmit Bay Suspension Bridge reached a significant milestone with a successful installation of two tower foundations. The Turkish Prime Minister visited the site and praised the construction and the great importance of the Izmit Bay Bridge.
During two major operations carried out on March 15 and March 26 the two 40.000 tons tower foundations for the COWI designed Izmit Bay Suspension Bridge were successfully immersed and installed into their final position. The bridge is part of a new, extended highway system connecting Istanbul and Izmir.
