The program called 'The Gateway' broadcasted on CNN International made its last broadcast from Istanbul. The Minister of Transport, Binali Yıldırım, who was the guest of the program, talked about the Bosphorus and the Marmaray Project.
The program "The Gateway", prepared by Becky Anderson coming to Istanbul last month, was broadcast last night. Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım, talked about Istanbul. The Bosphorus was examined in 'The Gateway', which was prepared by Anderson, one of the most remarkable programmers of the last period, where important centers of the world were visited.
In the program, we can understand the importance of Istanbul in maritime trade, considering the importance of the Bosphorus and Marmaray Project in the program. Currently, there are 87 small boats carrying more than 400 thousand people a day, as well as our large traffic ships and crude oil tankers passing from north to south. We were overloaded on the Bosphorus. With Marmaray, 2.500 thousand people will move from Asia to Europe a day. This will make local traffic safer, 'he said.
The repetition of the PROGRAM will be released on Saturday, December 1 at 10.45 and on Sunday, December 2 at 00.15 with 19.45.
We learned with Marmaray that the history of the city is 8500 years
Minister Yıldırım explained the difficulties experienced during the construction of Marmaray as follows: Most of the challenging part is completed. The current challenge is that we need to keep the historical part. The tunnel passes under a historical region. Each piece of land is examined by archaeologists. We stop when we are told to stop. For this reason, we lost five years but we are not unhappy, we contributed to reveal the history of the city. Before Marmaray, the history of Istanbul was known as 2500 years. With the archaeological excavations, we understood that the city's history goes back to 8500 years.
