Road cracks open during Marmaray construction in İstanbul

Road cracks open during Marmaray construction in İstanbul :A crack formed on a road in İstanbul’s Zeytinburnu district on Monday during the construction of a new section of the Marmaray, the world’s first underwater rail link between two continents.

Work was under way on the extension of the Marmaray line to İstanbul’s Halkalı district when a crack formed on Zübeyde Hanım Street in Zeytinburnu. About 100 meters of the street were affected.

Officials closed the gap with concrete and took samples from the scene in order to determine the cause of the damage.

The Marmaray, which connects İstanbul’s Asian and European sides via an undersea commuter train line, was inaugurated, fulfilling an Ottoman sultan’s dream from 153 years ago, on Oct. 29.
