As an engineer, I have the happiness. In the past we were watching with envy the great projects that some countries had done. But now we have become the talk of major projects in Turkey that followed the envy of the world, one in which we found the entrance Eurasia Tunnel today. Being a first in the world due to the fact that the sea passes under the 106 meter, being a record, and with the 13.7 meter-wide CPC machine again, the average 8-10 meters have a larger tunnel in the world in terms of creating a record in the form of a rapidly opened tunnel, but this speed has been No work done, both finished. An example in this sense. Bu
He also touched upon the contribution of the Eurasia Tunnel to the historical peninsula. Of course, if you think of the 5.4-kilometer tunnel from Asia to Europe and the sea from Göztepe to Kazlıçeşme, it is an important project together with the total connection roads of approximately 15 kilometers, but we are not only connecting two continents under the sea. I think the historical peninsula is very important for us. It is very important for the historical peninsula to pass the traffic movement under the sea to the historical peninsula and to reduce the negative effects on the historical texture. Above all, you might say saving time, you can say fuel saving. You can say less greenhouse gas in terms of carbon dioxide emissions, but at least they are as important as reducing the negative impact on the historical peninsula. And yet he managed the Eurasia Tunnel Make-Operate-Transfer model in Turkey in recent years is a very good example in terms of projects. Leri It is a project that has been implemented by using private sector dynamics without using public resources. Özel

However, the dollar's annual strain in question, 20 will make its calculations in December. 1 is based on the dollar rate in February every year by adding strain and VAT. 1 The dollar in February will set the price for that day.

Therefore, with the help of HGS and OGS, this tunnel will be spent in the form of Turkish money. The fee will be revised annually Ücret.
Aslan said, X Both OGS and HGS are going to pass through the same toll booths, but more importantly, our speed limit in this tunnel is 70 kilometers. Therefore, the number of vehicles entering the tunnel according to the speed of the 70 and 120-130 XNUMX thousand vehicles that we expect at the beginning of all our work shows that. We are planning a plan where these vehicles can easily pass and there will be no disruption. Within the framework of this planning, there will be two shortcomings, two of which are going to be in tolls, or I wouldn't have a problem because HGS, OGS transit would be integrated with these two lanes. We will be able to provide the Eurasia Tunnel without any congestion, but with a certain flow. Bu
”All kinds of security measures were taken“

The second is the continuous electronic systems inside the tunnel, which will be constantly followed by each side. In any place, the mishap will give an immediate signal if there is a movement outside the normal. In the middle of the tunnel we will have a permanent team that can intervene. There will be teams at both ends. There will also be crossings at the 200 meter where people can switch to a lower tunnel if needed. Especially important in terms of air cleaning. Due to the 106 meter code in the middle of our tunnel, there is a forced ventilation, but other than that, we will have all kinds of fans. Ventilation.
