Subway line project to Istanbul’s third airport launched


Quote:
A project to construct a subway line connecting Istanbul’s third airport to the city center has been launched, said Transportation Minister Feridun Bilgin.

A tender for the project’s testing and preparation stage has started, with the aim of completion in one year’s time, Bilgin said. The tender was made July 27 and after a year of project testing and other processes, the construction’s main tender will be made in mid-2016, said the minister.

“The new subway line will enable people to reach the third airport from several points in the city center faster,” Bilgin noted, as quoted by Anadolu Agency.

The subway line, starting from Gayrettepe, will be 33 kilometer-long and will take 26 minutes from one end to the other. Gayrettepe, where the existing subway, Metrobus and bus lines currently meet, will be the main transfer point for both the Asian and European sides, Bilgin said.

The trip from Istanbul’s touristic İstiklal Street to the new airport will take 42 minutes and 70 minutes from the Kadıköy district on the Asian side, he added.

The new airport is being constructed at the road junctions of Arnavutköy, Göktürk and Çatalca, north of Istanbul’s European side, between the Black Sea regions of Yeniköy and Akpınar. There is currently no sea or subway transportation to the site from the city center.

Phase A of the construction’s first stage has plans to be finished in the first quarter of 2018 to serve 90 million passengers, according to company representatives in an exclusive interview with Hürriyet Daily News.

At this time, two landing fields and one terminal will be opened. Sixteen months after the phase’s completion, the company will need to open the third landing field.

After its completion, the new airport will serve a total of 150 million passengers and over 150 airline companies, while employing 100,000 people.

Construction of Istanbul's third airport 6 months ahead of plan





August 20, 2015
Construction of Istanbuls third airport 6 months ahead of plan
The new airport's construction is proceeding smoothly with 7,500 people working on the project, a number that might swell to 30,000. Once completed, the airport will relieve the pressure on Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen airports, which are overcapacity

The construction of Istanbul's third airport is progressing faster than planned with the project expected to be completed six months earlier than scheduled, according to the CEO of the project Yusuf Akçayoğlu. While the third airport was planned to be completed in the third quarter of 2018, Akçayoğlu said they are working to finish the project in the first quarter of 2018.

The formal process started with the construction site delivery on May 1. Two runways, a terminal with a capacity of 90 million passengers and other additional buildings will be constructed in 42 months in the first phase. The construction of the third runway will be completed in the 58 months that follow site delivery in the second phase. Istanbul's Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen airports face capacity problems because of the rapid growth in the civil aviation transportation sector in recent years. Therefore, the airport project will be completed in the first quarter of 2018, although its formal construction period ends in October 2018. After the revised master plan of the airport project was approved on June 22, 2015, infrastructure and superstructure projects that will accelerate construction activities have also been confirmed. The construction is running smoothly and the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication are holding coordination meetings with the General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMİ) on a regular basis.

There are a number of earthworks taking place on the project site. The poor-quality earth, which consisted of mine dumps, was completely removed from the area where upper structures will be built. Additionally, elevated areas are also being excavated. Rehabilitation and fill work is continuing in the marsh area, parts of which were drained in the first phase.

Design firms started work after the finalization of all tenders regarding the design of the airport. Tenders regarding subcontractor companies and equipment have also been completed to a major extent. The construction work is continuing in parallel with the confirmation by design firms. All equipment related to the construction work, including baggage, bridges, main energy center, facade, roofs, steel, elevators, escalators and fuel will be ordered by the end of 2015.

When the project is completed, the new airport will set an example by having the highest international flight safety standards. The most advanced technology and experience in the aviation sector are being closely pursued to this end.

A total of 7,500 people - 653 white collar and 6,846 blue collar - are employed on the project. When the construction work reaches the most intense level, it will offer jobs to a total of 30,000 people. Currently, there are 1,460 trucks deployed on the site.

A total of 10 million trees will be planted in place of those trees that were cut down as a part of the project.

The airport will have 165 passenger-boarding bridges, four terminals connected with a railway system, three maintenance buildings, eight air traffic control towers, six runways, 16 taxiways, an airport hangar of 6.5 million square meters with a capacity of 500 airplanes, a parking lot with a capacity of about 70,000 vehicles and touted as the largest airport parking lot in Europe, a clinic, fire department, hotels, a convention center and recycling and waste disposal plants. The airport will be connected to the Istanbul metro and multi-lane highways will be built to facilitate access. The area where the airport is being built was chosen with the consideration of ecological balance, wind data and the natural and artificial obstacles of the region.

I hope they connect the new airport and city center with Maglev trains in the future like in Shanghai. It's the fastest thing which means more passengers carried in the same time. The length is comparable (30km) with travel times of just 10-15 minutes.

The new Istanbul airport is no doubt architecturally beautiful but unfortunately the columns surface looks too bland.



In my opinion, the columns surface should be etched with Ottoman-inspired design (simple yet elegant) such the one below found on the minaret of Sultanahmet Mosque.

40,000 turtles relocated from Istanbul's 3rd airport construction site



Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA) CEO, Yusuf Akçayoğlu, said a total of 40,000 turtles were collected from the construction site of Istanbul's third airport and moved to other parts of the forest. A group of journalists was allowed to watch the ongoing construction work on Istanbul's third airport from the air during a helicopter tour. The tour was also attended by the authorities of IGA - the performer and concessionaire company, which was established by the consortium of Turkey's five leading construction companies (Cengiz İnşaat, Limak İnşaat, Kolin İnşaat, Kalyon İnşaat and Mapa İnşaat).

Delivering a press statement following the helicopter tour at the construction site, IGA board member Nihat Özdemir said the first phase of the airport will have a capacity of 90 million passengers and three runways in north-south direction. Özdemir also said 15 percent of the first phase of construction has been completed, adding that the rest of the airport is aimed to be completed by Feb. 26, 2018, on President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's birthday. Özdemir stated that the airport will need 250 megawatts of energy after it comes into operation, adding that this amount is equal to the energy used in the city of Afyon alone. The Turkish Electricity Transmission Company (TEİAŞ) will construct a transformer field in the airport to satisfy this requirement.

Touching on IGA's sensitivities about the environment and animal rights during the construction process, Akçayoğlu said the company collected 40,000 turtles from the construction site relocating them individually to other parts of the forest and submitted many bulbous plants to the Atatürk Arboretum in Istanbul. There are environmental engineers working for the project, which received an Environmental Impact Assessment (ÇED) report, Ayçayoğlu said.

Stressing that the criticisms of IGA's environmental sensitivity are completely unfair, Akçayoğlu said this work is being conducted in cooperation with the Regional Directorate of Forestry. Apart from IGA, Akçayoğlu said there is no company in the world that employs five ornithologists and that IGA's bird-watching team receives support from world-renowned bird watchers.

Istanbul's third airport to open on Feb 26, 2018




December 11, 2015

Istanbuls third airport to open on Feb 26, 2018
Transport Minister Yıldırım gave a precise date for the opening of Istanbul's third airport. Accordingly, the world's biggest airport will be officially inaugurated on Feb. 26, 2018



Minister of Transport, Maritime and Communication Binali Yıldırım has set the date for the opening of Istanbul's third airport as Feb. 26, 2018. Yıldırım attended the inauguration ceremony of an event in Istanbul called the Satellite, Space and Technology Days powered by TÜRKSAT, where he announced the date for the opening of the world's biggest airport.

The first broadcast from the TÜRKSAT 4B Satellite was actualized during the inauguration, which was streamed via the 4K teleconference, featuring the latest images from the ongoing construction of Istanbul's third Bosporus Bridge, the third airport and the İzmit Bay Bridge. Also, the TAI Satellite Test Center in Ankara participated in the live broadcast.

People attending the ceremony were also witness to some amusing scenes, as Yıldırım maintained his "outspoken man" reputation. During the live broadcast of the third airport, Yıldırım asked the project's chairman Nihat Özdemir if he wants to say something as the "property owner" referring to the agreement giving operational rights to IGA for 25 years. The IGA, Havalimanı İşletmesi A.Ş. Consortium, includes five big construction companies, which won a tender held in May 2013 to build Istanbul's new airport. "Sorry, I mean long-term renter," added Yıldırım. The minister further asked Özdemir when the airport will start to operate. Özdemir said that they expect the first flight to arrive in the first quarter of 2018. The minister, who has 13 years of experience, set the date for the opening as Feb. 26, 2018. The original plan for the project was set for the second half of 2018, which was later changed by IGA, noting that the project will be completed six months earlier than planned.

On Wednesday, Özdemir announced tha when the first phase of Istanbul's third airport comes into operation, operations at Istanbul Atatürk International Airport will cease.

The total budget of the project's first phase is about 6 billion euros, and 25 percent of this budget will be financed by the consortium's equity capital. The four phases of the project will be financed by bank credits totaling 80 percent and equity capital totaling 20 percent. Moreover, it is not expected to be a burden on the Treasury.

The airport is planned to serve an average of 200 million people annually when all four phases become operational. Currently, a total of 8,000 people are employed on the project; however, when the construction work reaches the most intensive level, it will offer jobs to a total of 100,000 people. Also, there are 2,500 trucks and heavy equipment machines deployed at the site.

The airport will have 165 passenger jetways, four terminals connected with a railway system, three maintenance buildings, eight air traffic control towers, six runways, 16 taxiways, a 6.5 million-square-meter airport hangar with a capacity of 500 airplanes, an approximately 70,000 vehicle capacity parking area - touted as the largest airport parking lot in Europe - a clinic, fire department, hotels, a convention center and recycling and waste disposal plants. The airport will also host 150 airlines. The airport will be connected to the Istanbul metro, and multi-lane highways will be built to facilitate access. The area where the airport is being built was chosen after the ecological balance, wind data and the natural and artificial obstacles of the region were taken into consideration.

Istanbul’s 3rd airport’s air control tower to have tulip-inspired design

December 24, 2015





Pininfarina and Aekom's innovative tulip-inspired design was announced Thursday as the winner of the international design competition for the airport traffic control tower of Istanbul's third airport.

The AECOM and Pininfarina design is an elliptical tower that harnesses aerodynamics. The design combines speed, modernity and romanticism, while its tulip-inspired shape is a beautiful reference to the centuries-old Turkish history.

Initiated by the IGA (Istanbul Grand Airport), the contest saw many world-renowned designers from both aviation and automotive sectors. The tulip-inspired design was chosen from a total of six entries from international architectural teams such as Zaha Hadid, Moshe Safdie, Fuksas, Grimshaw-Nordic and RMJM.

Commenting on the results of the contest, IGA CEO Yusuf Akçayoğlu said that the airport traffic control tower had an especially symbolic meaning for the new Istanbul Airport-which is set to be the world's largest new airport in terms of annual passenger capacity.

Stating that they were looking for just the right design that would fit for a 21st century airport while at the same time remaining sensitive to Istanbul's unique heritage, the CEO said that it was a tough call between the six top designs.

"The new air traffic control tower will be an iconic structure, visible to all passengers travelling through the airport," said Akçayoğlu reminding that the new tower will rise on a 5.000 sq. meter construction area with a height of 95 m.

"We aim to complete the air traffic control tower in October 2017, "he said, adding that the construction will begin in May 2016.

The new airport is currently being built on the European side of Istanbul and the construction is expected to be completed by 2018. It will also have an initial capacity of 90 million passengers per year, but with extensions it will be able to host 200 million.

The IGA consortium, which won a tender held in May 2013 to build Istanbul's new airport, comprises of five leading Turkish construction companies Cengiz, Mapa, Limak, Kolin and Kalyon.

In October, IGA made an agreement with Turkey's state-owned Halkbank, Ziraat Bankası and VakıfBank as well as foreign-financed banks DenizBank, Garanti Bankası and Finansbank for a €4.5 billion loan for the first phase of the aviation project.

Havalimanına ulaşım için hızlı tren ve metro gibi raylı sistemler de olacak. Yeni havalimanı-Gayrettepe arasında yapılacak metronun ihalesine yakın zamanda çıkılması bekleniyor.


Afyon ilinin tükettiği kadar enerji tüketecek

Havalimanının hizmet vermeye başladıktan sonra 250 megavatlık enerjiye ihtiyacı olacak. Buradaki toplam enerji ihtiyacı 250 megavat. Afyon ilinin tüketimi kadar bir enerjiye ihtiyaç var. Türkiye Elektrik İletim AŞ (TEİAŞ) trafo sahası yapacak. Bu konuda görüşmeler devam ediyor.

İlk etabın açılışında 90 milyon kapasiteli olacak havalimanı bütün işlerin bitiminde 150 milyon yolcu kapasiteli olacak. Ebatlarımız onu gösteriyor ki; Yeni Havalimanının pistleri ve altyapısı gibi bütün herşeyi bitince, hızlı treni ve metrosuyla 200 milyon yolcuya hizmet verecek kapasitede olacak.

Dünyanın en büyük havalimanı unvanını elde edecek projede ilk etap Atatürk Havalimanı'nın 3 katı büyüklüğünde olacak.

40 bin kaplumbağa tek tek taşındı

Havalimanı inşaatı sırasındaki çevre ve hayvan hakları konusundaki hassasiyetler göz önüne alınıyor. Havalimanı alanından 40 bin kaplumbağa toplanarak tek tek ormanın başka alanlarına taşındı. Çok sayıda soğanlı bitki Atatürk Arboretumu'na teslim edildi.

Çalışma sahasında taşınmaya müsait olan fidan ve ağaçlar Arnavutköy ve Eyüp'teki okul bahçelerine ve ormanlara taşınıyor. Taşınması uygun olmayan ağaçlar için ise Türkiye genelinde 10 milyon ağaç dikilecek.
