THE LINK OF THE PROJECT: TIRTIL
The backbone of the project is the work of the 120-meter-long giant Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) machine called "Caterpillar". The vehicle, which is completely resistant to natural disasters, covers the width of the tunnel with a digging diameter of 13,7 meters, and constructs the inner wall by digging the soil under the bottom of the Bosphorus. The Pips, is said to be the highest degree of excavation machinery in Turkey with the length and format of modern excavation and placement segment.
Authorities, the project's construction sites so far, death or serious injury would cause a work accident, he said. It was stated that the personnel were regularly checked on the construction site where occupational safety warning signs were frequently used.
THE BASIC WAS REMOVED ON 26 FEBRUARY 2011
The foundation was laid on 26 February 2011 Euroasia Tunnel design, construction and operation for 24 years and 5 months, from Turkey Yapi Merkezi and South Korea's SK E & C has established the Eurasia Tunnel Property Construction and Investment Co. (ATAS) by Build It will be realized with the Operate-Transfer model. 1,3 billion dollars will be invested for the project.
PROJECT 100 DAKIKALIK TRANSPORTATION TIME 15 DAKİKAYA İNECEK
The Eurasia Tunnel toll will be $ 4 + VAT for cars and $ 6 + VAT for minibuses. The Eurasia Tunnel aims to reduce the travel time in Istanbul, where heavy traffic is effective, by reducing the transportation time between Asian and European sides by up to 100 minutes.
