- Scandal in bridge construction: 3. The pottery was hidden from the Archeology Museum in order to continue the construction on the bridge. There are many historical artifacts from the Ottoman period to the Roman period on the route of the 3rd bridge, but the Istanbul Archeology Museum was not informed deliberately so that the construction did not extend like Marmaray. it turned out that the laws were broken.
The bridge and its route were exempted from the EIA report to avoid a seven-year extension as in Marmaray, according to the news of Ömer Erbil from Radikal newspaper. However, the ICA Consortium, which built it, needed an EIA report, even if it was foreseeable, to receive loans from international financial institutions. The works that were stored in the museum also appeared in the report that was prepared in just two days.
Two-day report overflowed with treasure
Accordingly, the 13 section of the international consultancy and engineering company AECOM is the title of Archeology and Cultural Heritage. This section was prepared by Regio Cultural Heritage and Consultancy company on the basis of observations made by archaeologists Gökhan Mustafaoğlu and Uğur Dağ for about two days.
Archaeologists, in the preliminary examination of the route outside the forest and bushy terrain, in the region, 'experienced archaeologist accompanied by a' field research suggested. The archaeologists were identified as follows:
- It was noted that the areas where the bridges will be constructed have a high potential for historical assets; In the literature, it is stated that there are many historical settlements in these areas, and one of the hills between Anadolukavağı and Poyrazköy is mentioned.
- It was pointed out that many architectural structures and archaeological properties of the project could be covered by land or covered with vegetation; systematic field surveys of experienced archaeological teams in the forests and bushes of the project area were recommended.
- Some potsherds and tiles were observed at the roadside between Garipçe construction site and Garipçe Village. The archaeologists stated that this may be the remains of a tower or station used for the surveillance of the Bosphorus and that the surface finds belong to the Byzantine and Ottoman periods.
- In Başakşehir, a domed tunnel that was thought to be made by man was discovered; The building of the 0.65 x 10.30 meter is very likely a sarcophagus.
The archaeologists suggested in the report: ığ After the deforestation of the construction sites in cooperation with the Regional Protection Boards, an intensive field survey should be carried out, and given the archaeological potential of the area, all activities, including physical intervention, must be carried out under the supervision of experienced archaeologists.

However, the Istanbul Archaeological Museum was not informed; museum officials said they had not made an application to them. All this was done when a cultural existence was found during the construction and a violation of the law numbered 2863, which has to stop the construction immediately and inform the nearest museum.
