Turkey’s 1915 Çanakkale Bridge has achieved a significant milestone by winning the top award in the “Global Best Projects” competition organized by Engineering News-Record (ENR), one of the most prestigious publications in the engineering world.

The entries were meticulously evaluated based on criteria such as teamwork, overcoming challenges, safety, innovation, societal contributions, construction quality, craftsmanship, functionality, and aesthetic quality in design.

The jury, consisting of experts from various fields, including airports, education, healthcare, public infrastructure, military projects, manufacturing, cultural venues, roads, highways, dams, sports facilities, and entertainment spaces, recognized 31 projects from 23 different countries that serve as global exemplars due to their innovative approaches and unwavering commitment. In this context, 1915Çanakkale Bridge secured the top spot in the “Bridge and Tunnel” category.

The 1915 Çanakkale Bridge previously gained international recognition during its construction in 2021 when it was featured in a special section of ENR magazine, with a breathtaking photograph capturing the bridge’s 318-meter height gracing the magazine’s cover.

Furthermore, in May 2023, 1915Çanakkale Bridge and Highway received the top honor in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s Public-Private Partnership and Infrastructure Awards, not only for its environmental and social contributions but also for its significant role in promoting the circular economy.
