Tower and catwalk installation have been completed and prefabricated parallel wire strand installation is now under way, with 144 strands to be placed in the main span and 148 in the side spans. 

Once main cable installation is finished, hanger installation will be performed and the prefabricated deck blocks will be lifted into position. 

On each side of the main span, the steel towers stand at 318m as a symbol of March 18th, the anniversary of the Dardanelles naval victory during World War I.
