A Solution for Traffic Jam in Istanbul on East/West Direction
- transit transportation
- fuel consumption
- CO2 emission
EN İstanbul is a big city, located on east-west direction and enlarging every day on both direction with full of people living and working on both sides of city and utilizing two bridges both by private cars and by urban transport vehicles. At the same time, İstanbul is a city connecting east-west road freight transit transportation, but unfortunately having only one bridge to be used by transit vehicles. Based on year 2013 figures, daily 173.579 private cars and small vehicles and 1.700 buses passed over Bosphorus Bridge while there are daily 180.318 private cars and small vehicles and 10.200 trucks and trailers and heavy vehicles for Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. The purpose of this study is to determine the benefits of new RoRo lines between Tuzla – Ambarlı on bases of minimizing CO2 emission, number of trucks and trailers diverted from bridges to sea, saving on fuel consumption and time on route gained by diverting these vehicles to new Roro lines.
