The Çanakkale Suspension Bridge is a planned suspension bridge located at the western end of the Sea of Marmara, close to Çanakkale and approximately 200 kilometers from Istanbul, Turkey. It will be one of the longest suspension bridges in the world by length of central span. The bridge will be part of the Çanakkale-Tekirdağ-Kınalı-Balıkesir highway project. The construction tender is expected to be given in 2015.[5]
