Republican People's Party (CHP) Niğde Deputy Ömer Fethi Gürer asked the Minister of Transport Cahit Turhan about the feasibility studies of the Kanal Istanbul Project at the meeting of the Parliamentary Planning and Budget Commission, where the budget of the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure was discussed.

Gürer stated that the ship crossings in the Bosphorus decreased by 10 per cent in the last 25 year, however, while the feasibility study of Kanal Istanbul was carried out, the study was carried out considering that the passage of ships would increase.

Answering Gürer's questions in writing, Minister Turhan explained the feasibility studies of Kanal Istanbul considering the many parameters such as the OECD data and the trade volume in the Black Sea Region.


Minister Turhan stated that the maximum ship sizes and crossing percentages and passage capacities of all ports in the Black Sea have been taken into consideration in relation to the dimensions of the ships that will pass through Channel Istanbul, and the anchorage capacities of all ports in the Black Sea, wind, wave, etc. He said that it was determined optimally as a result of navigation modeling, which was carried out considering all negative operating conditions.

Explaining that it is imperative to eliminate the risk of cruising, life, property and environmental safety, especially during large ship transitions, due to the sharp turns and strong currents in the Bosphorus, Turhan said, “There is no one-way traffic of the ship in the direction of the Bosphorus. "Canal Istanbul was designed to provide a controlled way to allow safer safety to be done more reliably."

Minister Turhan, "Channel Istanbul studies are carried out with precision in secrecy," he said.

Minister Turhan, Gürer "Will the navy of warships be taken to the Black Sea on Kanal Istanbul in this way?" "Ship traffic projections for Kanal Istanbul were made only for commercial ships, and studies on the transition of strategically critical ship types are ongoing".

Turhan, the question about the bridges to be made within the scope of the project Proj The investment cost of the Canal Istanbul Project does not include expropriation and bridges. The bridges are planned to be constructed from the general budget instead of the build-operate-transfer model Kö.
