Emergency at main Istanbul bridge
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 22 / Trend A.Taghiyeva /
A malfunction was found on Tuesday at the Istanbul Halic Bridge, one of the four bridges across the Golden Horn, the Sabah newspaper reported.
Because of the danger of collapse, traffic was prevented from crossing on one of the bridge's sections. Now, experts are working on the site to decide what should be done to fix the bridge.
There are four bridges across the Golden Horn in Istanbul: Galata, the Old Galata Bridge (not operated), Ataturk Bridge and the Halic Bridge. This means communication between the two parts of Istanbul on both sides of the bay is now only via two bridges.
