Will there be cell phones in Marmaray? What happens if an earthquake happens? Turkey has a big dream come true tomorrow. The two sides of Asia and Europe come together. The distance between Marmaray and both sides will be reduced to only 4 minutes.
Is Marmaray resistant to an earthquake?
How was the measure taken against the nearby fault line?
What would people feel if Marmaray stays in the middle of the sea?
Is he gonna get a cell phone? Why is there no outside dialing?
Hurriyet columnist Ertugrul Ozkok yesterday toured the dream of Turkey. Let's cite the curious ones from Özkök's article;
WILL THE MOBILE PHONE TAKE?
- GOOD NEWS: While passing the Bosphorus under the sea, you will be able to call your relatives outside on your mobile phone and talk about your feelings.
- BAD NEWS: But the outside will not be able to call you inside.
You probably understood why.
Prevention against terrorism. To prevent the bomb from being detonated by telephone signal from outside.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL WHEN MARMARAY IS UNDER THE SEA?
How does one feel if the train stops right in the middle?
Is he afraid or claustrophobic? Panics?
The blue light above indicated that we were in the middle of the 1300-meter tube passage.
We were at the 60 meter depth of the Bosphorus.
The tube was placed underneath the 8-10 meter.
We had a huge body of water on us.
The doors are open. We went down. I've never had such a feeling of fear and claustrophobia.
The tunnel was very spacious. The security measures were so well explained that I was comfortable.
The light was very very good.
I opened one of the sliding doors between the two tunnels and crossed the other line.
Sure it was more spacious than the Channel Tunnel.
DEAD MAN ON THE TRAIN
The trainee had 15 years of experience.
6 months for this train have received special training.
What asks a mischievous journalist who has stung his soul into the curse beetle?
“God forbid you have a heart attack while using it
What happens? ”
The official next to him gives a very interesting answer:
Ey Don't worry, we have a 'Dead man' system ”.
I said, "I don't know, is he driving a dead man?"
No, if the living driver suddenly dies, he's talking about a system that notifies him.
A system under his feet checks whether the person who uses 30 every second is alive.
The train is already in automatic control. But when something happens to the user, the second system comes into play.
WHAT HAPPENS IN EARTHQUAKE?
Let me give you some terrible news: You know, 29 The Anatolian fault line passes near the 20 kilometer of the Marmaray tube passage you will be using from October.
You will live in Istanbul. You boarded a train passing under the sea 60 meters.
You don't think “What if there is an earthquake”?
Since the Minister and those who prepared the project came to mind before us,
An 7 staged system called Safe Fail Safe Protocol muş has been created.
MEASURES AGAINST EARTHQUAKE
-A: An earthquake investigation unit was established under the direction of Kandilli Observatory. This team carried out investigations için for an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 ”.
- TWO: In a section of the transition line, a bottom area with the risk of 'liquefaction' was found during the earthquake. Cement was injected into this section and turned into rock.
THREE: There are two risk points on the tube. One is the joints where the tunnel is connected to the land, and the other is the joints between the parts of the tube. A kind of suspension, called Kar grouting esneklik, is used in land transition areas, providing flexibility in all directions.
- QUARTER: In the event of earthquakes or concussions, intermediate rooms have been built to prevent water leaking into the tube. They also have pump pits.
- FIVE: In every part of the tunnel, sensors that sense even the smallest earthquakes are installed.
- SIX: If the Anatolian fault line is activated, the tube passage moves in the same direction. Therefore, with some exaggeration, we can even say that one of the most confident places during the earthquake is the Marmaray tube passage.
WHAT IS THE CUBE LIKE KABE?
All of us attracted the attention of the cube-shaped structure placed near the center of the big hall.
He immediately made me feel the imitation of the Kaaba.
But when I asked the experts, they gave me a very satisfying answer.
This is the elevator station. So it's normal to have a cube-shaped mass.
If you ask why the elevator, the reason is clear. Made for disabled people. Mandatory in such structures.
That is, a sign that shows the civilization that a country looks at its people.
First they left it empty.
They looked ugly, this time applying the dominant patterns on the walls of the hall.
The only ugliness that struck the eye was the ladder mechanism used to wipe the windows on the hill.
The executives also granted rights but could not find a solution.
In addition, close to one thousand 70 per hour. Ventilation systems are vital.
This is necessary for their care.
WHAT'S IN THE WALLS?
I liked the YENİKAPI Station very much.
- The entrance was spacious: a very large atrium made in the middle of the place.
The light fills in. But it gives us a sense of greatness that we can see in America and Russia.
-Fatih: There is a portrait of Fatih on the wall opposite the entrance. Various monograms appear on the walls surrounding it.
So the Ottoman is dominant ...
But Byzantine and Roman are forgotten:
On the contrary, almost all of the corridor walls are devoted to replicas of Byzantine and Roman artifacts produced during construction.
In other words, Istanbul history is represented with every period.
The music played was Turkish classical art music.
WHAT HAPPENED THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL WORKS FROM THE EXCAVATION?
From the moment we stepped through the gate of the station, the issue that the managers told us with the most enthusiasm was the importance given to the preservation of archaeological monuments during the construction of the Marmaray tube passage. Moreover, we personally listened to it by Zeynep Kızıltan, the director of Istanbul Museums.
- Continuous excavation between 2004 and 2011.
- Excavations, station area, 4 meters above the ground, 13 meters below.
-The Ottoman and the Republic at the top, East Roman 5 meters, underneath the Neolithic periods were reached.
-To date, the history of Istanbul 6 thousand years ago was able to go. With these excavations
together, 8 thousand 500 year-old works have been reached.
The smallest boat found is 8 and the largest is 45 meter.
Replica of one of the boats found on the wall. We asked him what was carried in the jugs.
It was olive oil or wine… I thought that if wine comes out, it will not be turned into olive oil with external intervention.
