At 1,408 metres long and 59 metres wide, the 3rd Bosphorus bridge is the longest and widest suspension bridge in the world. It was designed to resolve the transportation problems that currently exist in Istanbul and boasts a tower of 322 metres, 8 lanes of motorway and 2 railway lines all on the same level. The ICTAS-ASTALDI Consortium chose Asta Powerproject as their planning software for this megaproject “because it is not only powerful, but also very easy to use.” The iconic structure took 7,000 construction staff and 500 operational staff over a period of 10 years, 2 months and 20 days to build. Cem Erer, Planning and Controlling Director, gives the lowdown on this most complex of endeavours and explains how Asta Powerproject was used on the project. Read full case study here.
