Istanbul, Turkey's face is changing with giant projects: Currently, after 10 major projects completed and one ongoing and two from the majority of construction will have both changed the face of Istanbul Turkey
Channel Istanbul, Marmaray, Ankara-Istanbul YHT Istanbul 3 airport, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge, 3 Floor Large Tunnel Project Istanbul, Turkey's face is changing with Istanbul's mega projects, among them.
The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications has implemented major projects such as Marmaray, Ankara-Istanbul High Speed Train (YHT), with an investment of over 13 billion lira in the last 260 years. While the construction of the 3rd Airport, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge (3rd Bridge), Istanbul-İzmir Highway projects is started to Istanbul, the 3-Storey Grand Istanbul Tunnel Project will reduce the distance between Kanal Istanbul and Ankara-Istanbul to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Preparatory work has begun for its tenders.
Two projects end
Istanbul-Izmir Highway Project, Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge (3. Bridge) projects are expected to be completed by the end of this year. The Eurasian Tunnel will be completed next year. For the Channel Istanbul Project, work was started with the participation of related parties. The specification came to the writing stage.
3 Multi-Storeyed Istanbul Tunnel Project
The works in the 3-Storey Grand Istanbul Tunnel Project, which was prepared to ease the traffic of Istanbul, have come to the tender stage. The length of the project, where 2 highways and 1 metro road will pass under the Bosphorus, will be 6,5 kilometers.
Thanks to the three-storey tunnel starting from Hasdal on the European side and ending in Ümraniye on the Anatolian side, the Bosphorus will be crossed underground for the third time.
With the project, 9 rail systems in Istanbul will be connected to each other. Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, Bosphorus Bridge and Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge will be connected to each other as a ring. The highway crossing required by Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and the metro crossing that will complete the Bosphorus Bridge will become a whole with a 3-storey mega project with a single line.
Upon completion of the project, the travel time between Hasdal-Ümraniye-Çamlık will be reduced to 14 minutes. Incirli-Sogutlucesme 6 thousand 500 meter tunnel will be passed in 40 minutes. 3. A fully integrated project with axles linking the airport, bridges and bridges will save you time to maximum. In the coming months, the tender process will be completed in the 5 tunnel is expected to be ready in the year.
1 hours between Ankara and Istanbul will fall to 15 minutes
Another important project for Istanbul is the Ankara-Istanbul Speed Railway Project, which will reduce the distance between Ankara and Istanbul to 1 hour and 15 minutes. The part of the project from Ankara Sincan to Köseköy is planned to be built using the build-operate-transfer model.
2014 will be at the 3 hour in 45 with 1 hour 15 time, which will be activated in XNUMX.
The company that will make this investment on the route in question will be granted a concession right. Starting from Köseköy, the company, which has been granted concession rights, has both the 3rd bridge and the 3rd airport. HalkalıIt will be possible to use the railway line extending to.
3,5 from Istanbul to Izmir
When the İzmit Bay Crossing Suspension Bridge, which is the most important crossing point of the project in question, will be reduced to 3,5 hours between Istanbul and Izmir, the 1-1,5 hour in this part will reach 6 minutes.
With the suspension bridge project, transportation from Istanbul to the Aegean Region will now be much more comfortable. Thanks to the project, real estate prices are increasing rapidly with the intensive purchases of foreigners in regional provinces such as Yalova.
The most important crossing point of the project is the Izmit Gulf Passage Bridge, which is built between Dilovasi and Hersek. The 3 is the second longest suspension bridge in the world with the length of the 550 and also the world's 4. will have the title of big suspension bridge.
The main investors of the 401-kilometer highway project, which is carried out by Otoyol Yatırım ve İşletme A.Ş. with the BOT model, are Nurol, Özaltın, Makyol, Astaldi and Göçay.
The first stage at the 3rd airport will be completed in 2018

At the airport, the cost of construction is expected to be 10 billion 247 million euros.
Gayrettepe-3. 26 minutes from the airport
Gayrettepe-3, which was built by the Ministry in order to provide easy access to Istanbul 3rd Airport, to breathe the traffic of Istanbul and to facilitate urban transportation. The tender for the study-project construction of the airport metro line was concluded on 27 July.
3 with rail system. With this project, which provides fast access to the airport and the city center to the Istanbulites in a very short time, Gayrettepe-3. The airport line will be about 33 kilometers long.
Transportation between two points will be provided in 26 minutes.
When completed, the 120rd Airport-Gayrettepe metro line, where metro vehicles reaching a speed of 3 kilometers per hour will be used, will also be integrated with other metro lines in Istanbul. Thus, the 3rd Airport will be reached in a very short time from both the European and Asian sides of Istanbul. It is planned that the study-project construction work will be completed within a maximum of 1 year, and the construction tender of the line in question will be launched in 2016.
Two subway projects will be integrated into each other. Both 3. connection to both airport and throat projects will be ensured
Kadıköy- Sabiha Gökçen will decrease to 46 minutes
The tender for the construction of the Kaynarca-Sabiha Gökçen Metro Line, which is among the projects carried out by the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications in order to relieve the traffic in Istanbul, was held, and the site was delivered by signing a contract with the Gülermak-YSE Partnership.
The line in question will be 7,4 kilometers long and will consist of 3 stations, 1 drilled tunnels and 4 cut-and-cover. According to the contract, the metro line will be completed in March 2018.
With the end of the work, it will be reached from Kaynarca to Sabiha Gökçen Airport in 13 minutes. With the completion of the metro works of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality KadıköyThere will be direct transportation from Sabiha Gökçen Airport by rail systems. Kadıköy-Kartal-Kaynarca, Kaynarca-Tuzla, Kaynarca-Pendik metro lines will be connected to Sabiha Gökçen Airport.
