The first two-storey road tunnel under the sea, which has the distinction of being the world's first Eurasia Tunnel's tolls and tariffs have been determined. It is a matter of curiosity about how much the toll costs of the Eurasia Tunnel, which is carried out by thousands of citizens daily. So how much is the Eurasia Tunnel toll? Cars, minibus passes how much money? Here is the 2019 Eurasia Tunnel toll and all other details…
EURASIA TUNNEL HOW WILL 2019 TRANSITION FEES?
The Avrasya Tunnel, which serves in Kazlıçeşme - Göztepe line, which is one of the busiest places in Istanbul, serves a total of 14,6 kilometers away.
The 5,4 kilometer part of the project consists of a two-storey tunnel built under the sea and connection tunnels, while road expansion works have been carried out on a total of 9,2 kilometers along the European and Asian coasts.
Eurasian tunnel price
There is also a cost to get from one side of the Bosphorus to another side through the Eurasia Tunnel without entering the traffic of the bridge and the vehicle density. OGS and HGS systems with the transition fee of the tunnel and the current price tariff 2019 investigated.
Eurasian Tunnel toll by vehicle type
Cars: 23.30 TL
Minibus: 34.90 TL
The toll is applied at the same rate in both directions. That is, the payment is paid separately in both directions. 15 July Martyrs' Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, as in the transition to the direction of Europe is not the case there is no charge.
How are Eurasia tunnel payments made?
Payments are realized by HGS and OGS service. In addition, Garanti Bank and Yapı Kredi Bank are also used as HGS and OGS contracted banks. During the transition tolls are common, you can switch from the box office and the balance will be deducted from your account.
If you don't have an OGS or HGS account, you can open a new OGS or HGS account via Banks or PTT Branches.
If the balance in the OGS or HGS accounts is insufficient, you can pay again via the yapt Payment ıza page on the Eurasian Tunnel web site or through the contracted bank, PTT, after uploading it back to your account.
After the transgression, 15 does not impose a penalty in case of payment of the toll during the day. In the case of payments to be made after the 15 day, in addition to the toll, the penalty of the penalty of 4 must be paid.
Vehicles forbidden to cross the Eurasian tunnel
Many vehicles, except for cars and minibuses, are not allowed to use the Eurasian Tunnel and pass through here. Vehicles below the Eurasian tunnel are listed below.
Vehicles with more than two axles
5 Tons of Weights
Vehicles transporting dangerous goods
Tools on 2 meter 80 cm
The Eurasia tunnel or the Bosphorus Highway Tube Crossing Project is the highway tunnel that connects the Asian and European sides laid on the date 26 February 2011 to Kumkapı on the Kennedy Street and the D-100 Highway on the D-14,6 Highway, which connects to the strait from the bottom of the sea floor on the Runway route. The total route is 100 with tunnel and connection roads. It is aimed to reduce the travel time of 5 minutes to Kumkapı and Koşuyolu.
In order to provide an alternative road crossing with three bridges and a car ferry in the Strait of Istanbul, the project, which is built approximately 1,2 kilometers south of Marmaray, is expected to provide a more balanced urban transportation to Istanbul by sharing the traffic loads of the existing three bridges and car ferries. It is the second submarine tunnel after the Marmaray tube passage in Istanbul. Although the toll of the tunnel is two-way; For the year 2017, it was N16,60 for cars and N24,90 for vans.
The Eurasia Tunnel Project (Istanbul Strait Road Tube Crossing Project) connects Asian and European sides with a road tunnel passing under the sea floor. The Avrasya Tunnel, which serves in Kazlıçeşme-Göztepe line where there is a heavy traffic in Istanbul, covers a total of 14,6 kilometers.
The 5,4 kilometer section of the project consists of a two-storey tunnel constructed with a special technology under the sea floor and connection tunnels constructed with other methods, while road expansion and improvement works were carried out on a total of 9,2 kilometers in Europe and Asia. The approach roads between Sarayburnu-Kazlıçeşme and Harem-Göztepe were expanded and intersections, car underpasses and pedestrian overpasses were built.
Tunnel passage and road improvement-expansion work, a holistic structure that relieves vehicle traffic. While the journey time in Istanbul is very heavy, the journey time is significantly reduced, and it is possible to experience the privilege of a safe and comfortable journey. It also contributes to the reduction of environmental and noise pollution.
Tunnel excavation and 'Lightning Bayezid' called tunneling machine (TBM); 33,3 with 2 kW / m1 cutting head power. 12 with 2 bar design pressure. and 147,3 with cutting head area 2 m6. ranks.
The 'North Anatolian Fault', which has a high seismic activity, passes near the 17 km of the Eurasia Tunnel. The seismic joints (seismic joints / gaskets), which are designed to reduce the stress and displacement of seismic activities to an acceptable level, have been carefully determined in the tunnel. The displacement limits were ± 50 mm for shear and ± 75 mm for elongation / shortening. Seismic rings were tested in laboratories and produced after their conformity and success were proven. Given the geometric dimensions and the level of seismic activity to be exposed to the bracelets, the CPC was the 'first' practice with these features in the tunneling industry.
In the design of earthquake behavior, the moment magnitude Mw = 7,25 has been accepted; 500 's "service conditions" against the earthquake that can be seen once a year and 2.500 against the earthquake that can be seen once a year "security conditions" could act without distortion. In the design phase, the seismic bracelet positions were successfully determined and the 'cutting head' torque was continuously measured during the construction of the tunnel.
440 cutting disc, 85 chisel and 475 brush were changed during excavation of tunnel. During the excavation, due to the ever-changing geological conditions, 4 had to undergo hyperbaric maintenance and repair operations by 'specially trained divers' and all were completed successfully. One of these operations, which caused total 47 day time loss, came about to the deepest point of the Tunnel. As a result of the successful completion of this repair and maintenance operation which has to be done in an untested pressure environment like the 10,8 bar, a 'first' was carried out in the world and the excavation was continued.
The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications and the General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments (AYGM), Eurasia Tunnel Management Construction and Investment Inc., which was established with the partnership of Yapı Merkezi and SK E&C companies to realize the design, construction and operation of the Eurasia Tunnel Project ATAŞ). The Eurasia Tunnel will be transferred to the public with the completion of the operation period.
1 with the build-operate-transfer model 245 was launched in December 22 with an investment of billion 2016 million dollars.
