Finished in 1998, the Second Bosphorus Bridge is a little longer than the First Bridge – by some 16 meters; both are some 64 meters above the water. No pedestrians walk on this toll bridge either. The Second Bridge is in addition to a main commuting artery also the route taken by main highway traffic trying to bypass Istanbul rolling between Edirne and Ankara.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
