Cowi is responsible for the detailed design of the Izmit Bay Bridge in Turkey.
The firm signed the contract for detailed design of the Izmit Bay Bridge in Turkey in cooperation with the Japanese contractor IHI last year.
The bridge, which is part of a new, extended highway system which links the two Turkish metropoles Izmir and Istanbul, will be the world’s fourth longest suspension bridge upon completion.
“The bridge over Izmit Bay is an extremely complex project with a free span of 1550 metres between its pylons and a total length of about three kilometres," says Henrik Andersen, vice president of major bridges at Cowi.
