Eyiste Viaduct – A Record Breaking Project That Connects
1,372 metres in length and carried by 2 abutments and 8 piers, the viaduct will span the Göksu River near Bagbasi District. The superstructure of the balanced cantilever bridge has nine spans, the longest of which is 170 metres. The piers vary in height from 31 to 155 metres. Work started in March 2017 and the structure is scheduled to open for traffic in June 2020. The bridge’s superstructure is constructed by the balanced cantilever method, which is ideal for long spans and has established itself as the method of choice for bridge-building projects in Turkey.
