"Will a third bridge over the Bosporus help solve Istanbul's traffic plight?
Sunday, December 30, 2007
Recent debates about a third bridge to be built over the Bosporus have revolved around issues such as when and where the bridge will be built and its possible outcomes rather than questioning the urgent need for a third bridge. Current discussions mostly focus on conflicts over profit, disturbing green areas, a weak transportation system and deficiencies in urban planning. But they come to a deadlock when the issue of the third bridge is mentioned. Some argue that a third bridge is already late in coming while others say it is the focus of politicians seeking payoffs."
