The 3-storey Istanbul Tunnel will connect 9 districts to each other: The rail system of the 3-storey Great Istanbul Tunnel, which will facilitate the transportation between the two sides of Istanbul, will be the Incirli-Söğütlüçeşme metro.
The works for the tender for the 3-storey Istanbul Tunnel, which will connect the two sides of Istanbul from underground, continue. The tunnel that will greatly relieve the traffic in Istanbul, Bakırköy, Zeytinburnu, Fatih, Beyoğlu, Şişli, Kağıthane, Beşiktaş, Üsküdar and Kadıköy will connect the districts.
Lütfi Elvan, the former Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, stated in his last statement that all efforts are underway to make the 3-storey Istanbul Tunnel tender before the elections. The former minister stated that the Eurasia Tunnel will also be opened at the end of 2016.
The 31 segment will be integrated with the İncirli-Söğütlüçeşme metro, which will consist of 14 kilometers and 3 stations.
3-storey Istanbul Eurasia Tunnel Project Route
Within the scope of the 2023 transportation projection, it is aimed to connect 9 rail systems with the İncirli-Söğütlüçeşme subway, which will be put into practice to relieve the traffic of Istanbul. In Istanbul, where the number of daily movements is 28 million people, this figure is expected to rise to 2023 million in 34. As of the end of 2014, 11 million 320 thousand people traveled by public transport in the megacity, and this number will exceed 2023 million in 20.
As of 2014, the share of the rail system in public transportation is 14,6 percent, the share of the highway is 80,2 percent and the share of the seaway is 5,2 percent. The 100th year of the Republic of Turkey's rail system in 2023 to 50 per cent, 47 per cent of road and maritime transport is expected to have a 3 percent share.

While it was determined that the most time consuming problem for the people of Istanbul was the crossings between the two sides, it was determined that 1.6 million people performed this process daily. The figure is expected to rise to the 2023 million band in 4. In this context, the number of vehicles using the Bosphorus Bridge was announced as 190 thousand and the number of vehicles using the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge as 230 thousand. In line with all these data, IMM aims to ease the road transport, which comes to the point of congestion, with the rail system, taking into account the increasing vehicle ownership.
Why Hasdal and Çamlık intersection in the 3-storey Istanbul Tunnel?
The reason for choosing TEM Hasdal intersection on the European side and Ümraniye Çamlık intersection on the Anatolian side;
TEM Highway, E5 Highway, North Marmara Highway, 3. Establishing a connection with the airport road,
The integration of regions with high population density in Istanbul,
Relief of traffic in areas close to FSM and Bosphorus bridges,
Providing transit without occupying the center of the city.
The use of bridges will also increase as of 2023 when all condensates are considered. The 3-storey Istanbul Tunnel will respond to the need for a road crossing under each bridge. The upper and lower floors will be used as a highway.
The entrance points of the Istanbul Tunnel, which will reduce the transportation between İncirli and Söğütlüçeşme to 40 minutes by fast metro, will reduce the distance between Hasdal-Çamlık to 14 minutes.
