The third tunnel will open in 2019

The third tunnel will be opened in 2019: The passage, where three separate routes are analyzed, will be suitable for both the wheeled vehicle and the rail system. The project is planned to be put into service in 2019.

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's new project for the return of Latin America was translated into Lütfi Elvan. The third tube gateway, which is planned to be built after the third bridge, will both relieve traffic and shorten the time. The tunnel, which will be in the rail system outside of the wheeled vehicle, makes a difference for the Minister Elvan, who is required to hand over the 7 March.


Following the Marmaray and Eurasian tube crossings, the third tube passage will be carried out for the project at various points of the Bosphorus. Together with the region that will most ease the traffic, the criteria such as the flow in the Bosphorus, the connection with the ring roads, the transition process and the environmental factors were reviewed individually.
The third tube passage will be different from the Marmaray and Eurasia tunnels. Marmaray was built for rail transit and put into service. The ongoing Eurasia Tunnel, which is still under construction, is for wheeled vehicles only.


The new tube passage will allow both the passage of the wheeled vehicles and the passage of the railway. One of the first examples of this aspect of the world will be the tube crossing, round-trip two-line wheeled vehicles, a line will be reserved for the rail system.


According to the plans, the construction of the third tube passageways and connection roads will be done by the build-operate-transfer (BOT) model. Construction period in Eurasia Tunnel was determined as 55 month, operating period 25 year 11 month and 9 day period. Following this process, the tunnel will be transferred to the General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments and the approach roads will be transferred to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. The route of the third tube passage, the connection paths and the distance will affect both the construction and operation time and costs.

8 may be worth a billion TL

It is stated that the cost of the new tube gate may vary between 4-8 billion TL according to the route to be determined. The project aims to carry out the tender studies in this year and test drives in 2019. After 2020, the project is expected to be fully operational.

Elvan will transfer the project

In accordance with the constitution, Minister Elvan, who should hand over his post to an independent member at 7 March due to the general elections in June, will go down in history as the name explaining the crazy project. President Erdoğan said Elvan would explain the details of the project. Prime Minister Davutoglu and Minister Elvan are expected to announce this project in early March.


Rumeli Hisari-Anadolu His .: The route was examined. The fact that the two fortress lines are only at a distance of 760 and that it is the narrowest part of the Bosphorus stands out as a feature of this line.

İstinye-Çubuklu: It concludes that it is compatible with the connection roads and the contribution to the traffic can be attractive. This line was seen as the most suitable route in the studies at 1976.

Umraniye-Kagithane: In the case of construction of an alternative route, it was determined that there might be an opportunity to take the 5 from Umraniye to Katırcılar which is the lower side of Hasdal.
