We will pass 106 meters under the Bosphorus with the Eurasia Tunnel

We will pass under the 106 meter of the Bosphorus with the Eurasian Tunnel: The end of the Eurasian Tunnel, which will provide the passage under the 106 meter of the Bosphorus, has reached the end. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said the opening of the 20 in December.
After the tunnel construction was completed to a great extent, the connection roads were accelerated, and Eurasia Tunnel signs were placed at many points and covered until the opening. The total length of the project, which will serve between Göztepe and Kazlıçeşme, is 14,5 kilometers. 5.4 kilometers of this length passes under the Bosphorus. The tunnel was built to withstand an earthquake of magnitude 9 on the Richter scale.
Relieve traffic
Of relieving the traffic expected from Istanbul, Turkey's first undersea road tunnel passing close to an end in the Eurasian longer Tunnel. While the construction of the tunnel under the sea continues, the work on the connecting roads on the ground continues feverishly.
While the total length of the project, which will serve between Göztepe and Kazlıçeşme, is 14,5, the 5.4 kilometer section of this project was built under the sea floor. The project consists of a two-storey tunnel with lanes and 2 where cars and vans will pass. The deepest part of the bridge under the sea is 106 meters above sea level, while the tunnel runs under 55 meters below the sea floor.
Fever working on the connection roads
Following the completion of the tunnel construction on 22 in August 2016, the works for the connection roads and the vehicles and pedestrians to be built there were accelerated. Approach roads between Sarayburnu-Kazlıçeşme and Harem-Göztepe were expanded and intersections, vehicle underpasses and pedestrian overpasses were built.
At many points, the work is going to come to an end and one of the biggest intersections, Yenikapi junction is underway. The fine workmanship of the bridges and underpasses whose rough construction has been completed continues. In many parts of the project, Eurasia Tunnel signs were installed, but they were covered until the opening.
High level of security
24 operation center in the tunnel will work for hours to ensure safe operation of the tunnel and traffic flow without interruption. Each 600 meter will be equipped with safety strips, an emergency evacuation system that extends through the lower and upper floors, and an emergency evacuation system along the tunnel, and a general public announcement system for secure waiting areas.
In addition, the tunnel can be accessed from every point of communication and notification system, each point of the tunnel 7 × 24 watched closed circuit television system and event detection systems, fire-resistant surface coating, special fire extinguishing systems are easily accessible from every point of the tunnel. Due to its proximity to the tunnel fault lines, it was built to withstand an earthquake of magnitude 9 on the Richter scale.
Journey from 100 to 15
1 billion 245 million 121 thousand 188 companies to complete the US dollar project will operate the tunnel 24 year 5 month. It is stated that the project will reduce the journey time from 100 minutes to 15 minutes on the route which is very busy in Istanbul.
Car tolls through the tunnel will be 4 Dollars plus VAT for one-way cars in the opening year and 6 dollars plus VAT for vans. There will be no payment for passengers only in the Eurasia Tunnel, which will be charged with a vehicle toll.
Prime Minister Binali Yildirim announced that the 20 will be put into service in December. Within the scope of the project, it was clearly seen from the air that the roads connecting Kazlıçeşme to the Eurasia Tunnel were completed to a great extent. While the work continued at the last speed, the connection roads between Sarayburnu-Kazlıçeşme and Harem-Göztepe were placed with signs indicating the direction of the tunnel. The connection roads that will connect the Eurasian Tunnel along the coast were expanded and it was observed that the works for the construction of the intersection, vehicle underpasses and pedestrian overpasses were continued.
