Osmangazi Bridge II Bosphorus

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

One of Turkey's fundamental geographic constraints is the isolation of Istanbul (by far its largest city) imposed by the Sea of Marmara.  That changed greatly with the opening in 2016 of the Osmangazi Bridge, seen here in this drone video by contributor and pilot Atamer.medya.  Spanning the Gulf of İzmit (the eastern extension of the Sea of Marmara), the 2.7k meter (8.8k ft.) suspension bridge nearly halved the travel time between Istanbul and Bursa, Turkey's #4 city and biggest industrial center.
