TURKEY | Eurasia Tunnel | Road Tunnel from Asia to Europe | U/C



The Eurasia Tunnel Project (Istanbul Strait Road Tube Crossing Project), whose foundations were cast on 26 February 2011, will connect the Asian and European sides via a highway tunnel going underneath the seabed. The Eurasia Tunnel will serve the Kazlıçeşme-Göztepe route where vehicle traffic is most intense in Istanbul and will cover a total of 14.6 kilometers.

While 5.4 kilometers of the project will comprise a two-story tunnel to be constructed underneath the seabed using special technology with connecting tunnels to be constructed using other methods, road expansion and improvement works are to be carried out on a total route of 9.2 kilometers on the European and Asian sides. The access roads between Sarayburnu-Kazlıçeşme and Harem-Göztepe will be enlarged. Vehicle underpasses and pedestrian overpasses will be constructed.

Tunnel pass and road improvement-expansion works will cause holistic relief on vehicle traffic. Not only will the travel duration on the route with its highly intensive Istanbul traffic decline from 100 minutes to 15 minutes, but also the privilege of safe and comfortable travel will be experienced. It will also contribute to the reduction of environmental and noise pollution.

Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications and General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments (AYGM) commissioned Avrasya Tüneli İşletme İnşaat ve Yatırım A.Ş. (ATAŞ) for the design, construction and operation of the Eurasian Tunnel Project for approximately 26 years. The Eurasia Tunnel will be transferred to the state on completion of the operating period.

THE PROJECT CONSISTS OF THREE MAIN SECTIONS

European Side

Construction of a U-turn on Kennedy Avenue connecting Kazlıçeşme to Sarayburnu as an underpass, and as a handicapped compatible overpass. Total enlargement of the section involving the current road with a length of approximately 5.4 kilometers increases it from 2x3 and 3x2 lanes to 2x4 lanes.

Bosphorus Crossing

The construction of a two-deck road tunnel with two lanes on each deck, an administrative building on one side and toll plazas and ventilation shafts at both ends of the tunnel.

Asian Side

Widening from 2x3 and 2x4 lanes to 2x4 and 2x5 lanes along an approximately 3.8 km-stretch of the current D-100 road that links at Göztepe to the Ankara-Istanbul State Highway, as well as construction of bridge intersections, one overpass and modernization of pedestrian bridges to allow access by the handicapped.

I know that thread but there is sections for bridges and I searched for tunnels and there is not a tunnel section,
I think we should have a tunnel section.

That is right. Never been in a traffic jam outside of Istanbul or City Centers in general.

I think the reason is that those roads are everywhere, all over the country min.2x2

-highest fuel prices in the world make Busses(very comfortable), Trains and very often Planes a cheaper alternative

-a 145% Tax on imp. Cars (tragic cause no domestic Brand, only cheap options are the models of Fiat produced in Turkey)

-only 233 Cars/1000 in Turkey Poland 533/1000, Greece 624/1000

(233/1000 after a 10 year car sales boom !)

Why are the fuel/petrol prices so high in Turkey? Is it because of taxes as well?

Mainly because of taxes, too.
Now imagine the situation of traffic in Istanbul and other big cities, if fuel prices dropped and also car prices dropped, current taxes being eliminated.
Also the account deficit, which is a main problem for Turkish economy. In fact, energy import is the main reason for this.

The fuel prices in Turkey are similar to Norway - the most expensive in the world. But Norway's average net income is six times higher than in Turkey. So when adjusted to income, the Turkish fuel price is by far the highest in Europe.

road numbering

https://sites.google.com/site/roadnu...yle-statistics

There are numerous ways how road numbers are signed in Turkey.

For example, the number of an otoyol can be signed in the following ways:
O.1
O·1
O-1
O_1
O 1
O1
