Marmaray's brother Avrasya Tunnel is landing in the sea today

The Eurasia Tunnel, the brother of Marmaray, is coming down to the sea today: VATAN displayed the Eurasia Tunnel Project, which the Prime Minister called 'sister to Marmaray', for the first time. In the project, which was 10 percent completed, the submarine work phase has come.
VATAN will see the Eurasia Tunnel, which is the most important connection of the project, which will connect the Asian and European continents for the first time from the bottom of the sea floor to the highway tunnel. The Bosphorus Highway Tunnel (Eurasia Tunnel), which will reduce Kazimçeşme and Göztepe between 15 minutes, continues at full speed. 5.4 10 420 XNUMX with tunnels will be found in the XNUMX'un completed, while the Eurasian Tunnel XNUMX meters reached a length.
2017 will finally open
Tunnel boring machine Yildirim Bayezid will take the excavation work to a new level by entering the ground under the sea for the first time. The Tunnel Boring Machine, produced in Germany specifically for the 1.3 billion dollar project, will pass under the 106 meter of the sea level at the deepest point. Bayezid will not approach the sea floor more than 26 meters. The project is expected to be paid in 7 annually.
Refuge rooms are being built
The Eurasia Tunnel was designed with all disaster scenarios in mind. In an earthquake-resistant tunnel built against the earthquake and tsunami, there will be a refuge in every 200 meter in case of an accident and an explosion. These rooms feature leakproof doors. Passengers entering the rooms in case of danger will not be affected by gas and smoke, emergency evacuation ladders will allow transition to upper and lower sections. Both sides of the tunnel will have ventilation chimneys and a central operation building on one side.
Mobile opening for fault
In order to prevent the vehicles failing in the tunnel, there will be a mobile in every 600 meter. With the 7 / 24 closed circuit camera and event detection systems, the tunnel will be monitored quickly and the passengers in the tunnel will be able to intervene quickly. All surfaces in the Eurasia Tunnel, where modern lighting technology is used, will consist of non-fire-resistant materials. As with other tunnels, radio frequencies will be informed by the drivers. The difference of this frequency feature from other tunnels will be to inform the vehicles in the lower and upper sections from different frequencies. For example, a traffic accident in the lower section will be announced from radio frequencies, while passengers in the upper section will not know about this situation and will not be panic.
26 will run the year
Make Buildings from Turkey and Eurasia Tunnel Center as a joint venture of SK E & C companies from South Korea-Operate-Transfer will be implemented in the project. Eurasia Tunnel was established by the partnership of two companies, Avrasya Tunnel Management Construction and Investment Inc. (ATAŞ) for 25 years, 11 months and 9 days. During this period, ATAŞ will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the tunnel. At the end of approximately 26 years, the tunnel will be transferred to the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments (AYGM).
