I want to ask you what happens with the Kanal Istanbul project, are the feasibility studies still ongoing?

The projects are still undergoing final public Q&A meetings for EIA before construction starts. That's where the diagram was presented. Not sure when openning time will be.

Thanks, so the project is still in the early phases of its implementation. I thought at the beginning that the two segments were going to be launched during the course of this year.

Is the HGS system already working only with a sticker (shown below) to pay for the motorways or the prepaid cards are still in use?

Yep. You can also use OGS, I'm not sure about KGS (The thing with the card).

HGS toll point,

KGS (card) is replaced by HGS (sticker). Deposits on the KGS are/were refundable, but I don't know where to apply for a refund.
Only two systems exist: HGS and OGS. Other ways of payments do not exist.

OK OGS uses a transponder while HGS a label or passive tag.
Do you need to slow down if you are equipped with HGS when passing through the toll point or it is possible that the bar code is read even with higher speed?

its RFID, so you don't need to slow down.

Yes I didn't express myself correctly, the serial number attached to the sticker is for registration and identification of the vehicle. The communication is by means of radio signals between the reader and the label.
I assume one day HGS will replace OGS too.

I don't think so. OGtS asume to have a bank account (turkish one), for direct paiment.
This is not ok for turists.
OGS is only fot turkish people.
OGS system was also during cash payment and KGS too.

I am surprised this piece of news was covered yet. 2 Massive Tenders were finally completed with contract awards last month near Istanbul. They were announced in 2014.

http://www.dailysabah.com/money/2016...l-bid-of-243bn

North Marmara Highway tender concludes with total bid of $2.43bn



The two big missing links now have contractors appointed.

Quote:
All four companies also take part in the consortium that builds Istanbul's 3rd airport, which will be the world's largest in terms of passenger capacity when completed.
From around 9 o clock to 12 o clock around the European side of Istanbul and connecting to the new Airport along the way.

Quote:
the 88 kilometer-long European part of the project located between Kınalı and Odayeri villages, which will connect the TEM highway with Istanbul's third airport and third bridge, was awarded to Kolin-Kalyon-Hasen consortium for TL 2.7 billion ($910 million). The bid for the build-operate-transfer was seven years, nine months and 12 days, while the consortium will own its operating rights for four years, excluding the construction period.
I would think the indicative construction period is 3 years 9 months and 12 days from May 2016 for the European section as the operation period after construction and before transfer appears to be 4 years here. This indicates it will open in Early 2020 latest, after the airport is scheduled to open. I take it they keep the extra toll money if they open it earlier than that.

Worth noting too that this is probably the largest single motorway construction contract to be awarded in Europe in 2016. 88KM of 3+3 and some hefty connecting junctions along the ways.

On the east side of the Bosphorus, and including a missing link between the 2 Great bridges, both due to open this year (from around 3 o clock to 4 o clock east of Istanbul on the yellow route shown on that map above) .

Quote:
The 169-kilometer long Asian part of the project located between Istanbul's eastern Kurtköy district and Akyazı district northwestern Sakarya province was awarded to Limak-Cengiz construction consortium for TL 4.5 billion ($1.52 billion). The consortium won the tender conducted through a build-operate-transfer method with a bid of six years, nine months and 12 days.
Not sure if all 169 km are 6 lanes, I would think it will be though. Be nice if the westernmost section in Asia opens early to connect the 2 bridges properly.

I would think the indicative construction period is 2 years 9 months from May 2016 for the Asian section as the operation period after construction and before transfer appears to be 4 years on both.

This indicates it will open in Early 2019 which would be around when the airport itself opens north of Istanbul and to transfer to the Turkish state in early 2023.

It will be interesting to see a vehicle registration comparison between HGS and OGS though.

HGS has several advantages to name but a few:
* No need to slow down hence no congestion
* The cost of running HGS system is less than that of OGS and a sticker is much cheaper than the box transponder
* No need of battery in HGS sticker as opposed to the active OGS device
* HGS tags are more reliable and take less space inside a vehicle
* Flexible back office system to process vehicles passage and payment

Is there any news on the progress of the Mount Ovit Tunnel in northeastern Turkey? It's a 14.7 kilometer tunnel that was supposed to be completed this year.
