But there is something wrong with this tableau: as most people know, the Bosphorus Bridge is already closed to truck traffic. Of the cars passing over the bridge in one day, on average only 1% of this is heavily-loaded truck traffic. And the other bridge, the Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge, has only 3-5% heavily-loaded traffic per day, of the on-average 230,000 cars which pass over it daily.
Which means that talk of a bridge to the north relieving our traffic problems is nothing more than fantasy. I personally believe that the contruction of a third bridge would not only not relieve the trafffic situation in the city, but that it would choke off city growth.
And so I have to wonder what the real reason is behind those who say that a third bridge "must be built" to the city's north.
