The cars causing heavy traffic in the city and Mahmutbey will use the new road. The Northern Marmara Highway Project, which will relieve Istanbul’s traffic load significantly, continues at full speed. Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge in Anatolia and Europe as the continuation of the first stage of the project next year will be opened on October 29. TEM and D-100 connected roads to relieve traffic thanks to the project, large vehicles with high tonnage will be drawn from the city traffic. The project will connect the Marmara Region to the Aegean and the Central Anatolia Region via a motorway network.

Here are the details from the big project:
The project is the continuation of Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, which opened to traffic in 2016.
A total of 170 kilometers of roads will be constructed, including a 70-kilometer highway, a 10-kilometer connection road and a 90-kilometer crossroad between Kınalı, connected to Silivri, and Odaya, connected to Eyüp Kemerburgaz. Thanks to 15 intersections in the project, residential areas such as Silivri, Çatalca and Habipler-Hasdal regions will be connected to the highway in Istanbul.
