History of the project
The idea of a railway tunnel that will pass under the Bosphorus was first introduced in 1860. The tunnel was planned as a tunnel placed on the columns built on the seabed.
Such ideas and thoughts were further evaluated over the next 20-30 years and a design was developed in 1902. In this design, a railway tunnel under the Bosphorus was envisaged, but this design mentioned a tunnel placed on the seabed.
Since then, many different ideas and thoughts have been tried and new technologies have turned into design. The desire to build a railroad public transport link that stretches between the east and west in Istanbul and passes under the Bosphorus gradually increased in the early 1980s, and as a result, the first comprehensive feasibility study was conducted and reported in 1987.
As a result of this study, the route determined in the project today was chosen as the best among a number of routes.
The project, which was outlined in 1987, was discussed in the years that followed, and in 1995 it was decided to carry out more detailed studies and studies and to update feasibility studies, including passenger demand forecasts in 1987.
These studies were completed in 1998, the results showed that the results obtained were correct, revealing that the project will offer many benefits to people working and living in Istanbul and will reduce the rapidly increasing problems related to traffic jams in the city.
In the 1999 Turkey and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a financing agreement between. This loan agreement was the basis for the project's funding for the Istanbul Bosphorus Crossing.
The tenders were open to international and national contractors and / or joint ventures.
BCNNXX Bosphorus Tube Crossing Construction, Tunnels and Stations were contracted in 2002, including the construction of the Bosphorus tube crossing and approach tunnels and 4 station construction. A second loan agreement was signed with JICA in 1 for this contract.
In addition, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the 2004 have signed loan agreements for the financing of the Railway Vehicles (CR2006) in 1 in 2006 in order to finance the financing agreements of important parts of the project.
With the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB), loan agreements were signed for the financing of the CR2008 contract in 1 and in the 2010 for the financing of the CR2 contract.
Contract CR1 Improvement of Suburban Lines and Electro-Mechanical Systems work was tendered at 2006 (prequalification 2004). The ICC Arbitration process, which started upon the termination and the contractor's application, continues.
The tender process of the said work under the name of Contract CR3 started with the publication of the International Tender announcement in July 2010 and technical offers will be opened in January 2011. Contract CR2 Railway Vehicles Supply business was tendered in 2008 (Preliminary qualification 2007).
