Opened in 1974, this bridge carries the 01/E5 motorway across the Golden Horn between Ayvansaray and Halıcıoğlu. Since this photograph was taken, seperate one-way bridges have been built either side of the main bridge to cope with the ever increasing traffic. Recently, the Haliç Bridge and other elements of the Istanbul transport infrastructure underwent seismic retrofit strengthening.
This view is towards Halıcıoğlu.
