A flash decision in the Channel Istanbul project: The framework of the Kanal Istanbul project became clear at the meeting with President Erdoğan.
The city, which will be built around the planned channel with a population of 1.2 million, was attracted to 500 thousand people upon Erdogan's 'No crowd' warning.
Behind the scenes of the meeting of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on the Kanal Istanbul project has emerged. While a city with a population of 1 million 200 thousand is planned to be built around Kanal Istanbul, Erdogan said, “The population should not be so crowded. Download it to 500 thousand ”. Thereupon, it was decided to establish a city with 250 thousand population on both sides. Upon Erdogan's “No tall building” instruction, it was planned to limit the height of the building to 6 floors in these cities. A total of 6 bridges will be built on the channel.
4 of these bridges will be built as the main road route. The 43-kilometer-long channel will be 400 meters wide and 25 meters deep. The channel will be built to allow the passage of large ships. After the urban design plan is completed according to the new population, the development plan phase will be started. In this context, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and municipal company BİMTAŞ will manage the process.
THE CITY WILL BE THE ORIGINAL CLEAR
