250 meters of Turkey's longest railway tunnel was opened: the Gaziantep and Osmaniye Garden Nurdağ will connect the towns of Turkey's 10 thousand 400 meters "longest" Railway opened 250 meters of double-tube tunnel.
Gaziantep and Osmaniye Garden Nurdağ will connect districts, 10 thousand 400 meters with Turkey's "longest" Railway opened 250 meters of double-tube tunnel.
A total of 20 bin 800 meters tunnel will be excavated for the double tube walkway between Bahce-Nurdağı districts located on the Adana-Gaziantep-Malatya conventional line. The tunnel consisting of 11 culvert, 5 underpass, BOTAŞ and NATO oil pipeline protection structures will cost 193 million 253 thousand liras.
Contractor's tunnel group coordinator Barış Duman told AA correspondent that they started to open the tunnel from the exit point at Gökçedere location in Nurdağ district in September, and that the 250 meter was achieved in two tunnels.
Stating that the tunnel is planned to be completed in 2017 and will shorten the existing railway line by 17 kilometers, Duman said, “23 people work in the project, 170 of which are technical personnel. This number will reach 300 in the future ”.
Stating that the most widely used TBM (Tunnal Boring Machine) system in the world will be used in tunnel digging, Duman said, “The TMB system can be used after reaching a length of one thousand meters. "We plan to complete the preliminary work and activate the TBM by May," he said.
Tunnel and railway line will be built geographically and geologically pointed out that the most challenging part of Turkey smoke, gave the following information:
“Railway, highway, highway and oil pipelines pass through the strait between Bahçe and Nurdağı districts, which connect Çukurova and the Southeastern Anatolia Region. In addition, residential and industrial facilities are intertwined. The Eastern Anatolian fault zone also passes here. When we consider these conditions, we see how difficult the route is, requiring serious engineering and planning. "
