The route of the Eurasia Tunnel has been extended: the route of the Eurasia Tunnel, which will link Asia and Europe with the underwater highway tunnel, has been expanded.

The Ministry of Environment demanded that the Eurasia Tunnel Project, which was built as a sister to Marmaray, be amended.
The second revision plan of the Eurasia Tunnel Project in the Zeytinburnu and Fatih districts was presented to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) in May. The revision was sent to the Directorate of Conservation of Cultural Heritage of Istanbul 2015 to be evaluated. A new revision was made to the project while the plan change was still in the board evaluation.


Ministry of Environment and Urbanization for the third revision of the parliamentary decision and the views of the IBB asked the institution. Revision of the Eurasia Tunnel Project 12 came up at the İBB meeting in February.
The plan of the ministry stated that the expropriation was kept to a minimum on the European side and the project was extended to the southern areas where private ownership was not available, so the area grew.


On the Asian side, it was announced that intersection designs were extended due to the repositioning of the Üsküdar Junction technical equipment buildings where the toll stations would be changed and the construction approach distance was changed.

In the planning, it was stated that the main elements of the project were adhered to and the flexibility was brought to the lower or upper crossing intersections which could change according to the conditions during the implementation phase. The 1.3 billion-dollar Eurasia Tunnel, which will connect Asia and Europe with the highway tunnel, is planned to be completed in 2017.

The Eurasia Tunnel, which will connect Asia and Europe with the highway tunnel, began in 2014. The cost of the project planned to end at 2017 is about 1.3 billion dollars. Kazlıçeşme and Göztepe between the 15 minutes to reduce the cost of the car pass through the tunnel in one direction is planned to be 4 dollars for cars excluding VAT. The total pass length is 14.6 km and the tunnel section will be 5.4 km.
