ANKARA (AA) - Turkey earned over 154.3 million Turkish liras ($28.8 million) from tolls collected at its two bridges over the Istanbul Strait and linked highways in January, according to the country’s highway directorate on Tuesday.

The July 15 Martyrs' Bridge and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, both of which are over the Bosphorus connecting Europe to Asia, yielded 34.5 million liras ($6.5 million), while the highways reaped 119.8 million Turkish liras ($22.4 million), according to data released by the Turkish Highways Directorate.
