When to open the Eurasian Tunnel: The Eurasia Tunnel is planned to be completed in August 2017 Minister Elvan said, but with the promise of the building group carrying out the project at the end of the 2016 vehicle transition will begin.
Minister of Transport Lütfi Elvan conducted investigations with journalists in the Eurasia Tunnel in progress. Elvan pointed out that the works in the Eurasian tunnel continued rapidly, dikkat 24 watches all our engineers are working. They make progress on the 10 meter. As of now, there has been a progress of a thousand 270 meters. We're in the 95 meter down from sea level. Above us 40 meters up to earth, its also on the sea water up to 55 meters. In such an environment where the pressure is intense, our work continues. A project to be proud of. It is one of the largest projects in the world. 10-11 bar under pressure. Diameter of our tunneling machine with a height of up to 13.7 meters. This means a higher machine than the 4 storey apartment, X he said.
Elvan said that the works in the tunnel were in front of expectations. U In April, we started tunnel works. Today we have completed 3 in 1. By the end of the 2015, the tunnel works will be fully completed. Of course, I mean underwater, not the completion of the project. We've got a 14.6 tunnel. There is an 5.4 kilometer section on the European side, there is an 5.4 kilometer under the Bosphorus, and on the Asian side there is an 3.8 kilometer. In addition to these tunnel works, tunnel works are being continued in both Asian side and European side with open closure and classical tunneling method. The 2 has a thousand-meter tunnel outside of Asia and Europe by connecting tunnels. We have also completed 40. At the moment there is a progress ahead of our goal, Şu he said.
Elvan said the Eurasia Tunnel was planned to be finished in August at 2017. However, with the promise given by the building group, 2016 stated that the vehicle passage will start at the end.
130 THOUSAND VEHICLES IN THE DAY
Emphasizing that the capacity of the Eurasia tunnel will be 130 thousand vehicles per day, Elvan said,, The guarantee we have given to the contractor company is 68 bin 500. However, our expectation is that as soon as the tunnel is opened, the 100 is around a thousand vehicles. 68 500 70 30 XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX XNUMX
Minister Elvan, the project will cause a relief in Istanbul traffic, specifying the following;
Usu In Istanbul, there are 15 million inhabitants and 3 is a million vehicles. Although the number of vehicles is increasing day by day, there is no increase in transit due to the capacity of the Bosphorus and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. So if you compare the number of vehicle transitions ten years ago and the current number of vehicle passes, you will see that there is no difference. In other words, although there is an increase in the number of vehicles in Istanbul by 60-70, there is no increase in the number of vehicles passing through the bridges. Because the capacity is full. There was a bit of relief with the Marmaray. Yavuz Sultan Selim bridge again with some relief will be provided. With the opening of the Eurasian tunnel, we will still have significant relief, but we still think that there will be traffic problems in Istanbul. Because it is still receiving immigration and population growth is still high. The vehicles coming to the Bosphorus and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge drop off the 9-10 lane into the 3-4 lane. So there is still a need. Approximately 1.5 million citizens a day travel to and from both sides. I think that Eurasia will provide relaxation Av
"DENSITY DECREASES 10 PERCENT"
Minister Elvan stated that they think that the density of the Bosphorus Bridge, Galata Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge will decrease by around 10 percent with the realization of the Eurasia Tunnel. Emphasizing that tunnel works are continuing safely, Elvan said, “Over 3 thousand parameters are followed in the control panel. Whatever comes to mind. They take precautions in case of any disruption. "The tunnel boring machine can go in its own direction automatically, thanks to the control panel."
Elvan said that the project is mutually resistant to all types of earthquakes in the 2 bin 500 year. Içerisinde There is a system developed by them technologically. Seismic seals with 830. By placing a seismic seal on the meter. It is a mechanism that allows the concrete structure to stretch if it is an earthquake, and if it needs expansion, Dep he said.
Elvan 1.3 announced that the Toll of the Eurasia Tunnel, which will cost $ 1 billion, will be the 4 dollar + VAT.
