Two separate tenders for the gigantic project that will break ground in Izmir transportation: Izmir Metropolitan Municipality is implementing a historical project that will break new ground in urban transportation. The tender will be launched next month for a total of 2.5 kilometers long road project, which is planned to connect Konak, Buca and Bornova, with a 7 kilometer deep tunnel. The construction tender will be held on December 20 for the part of the project that will be carried out in two stages, covering the "two tube single tunnel" and on the December 22 for the viaduct part.

A tender will be held on December 2 for the first phase, which covers the construction of a 500 meter long “two-tube single tunnel”, and on December 20 for the second phase, which covers the construction of 2 viaducts, 2 underpasses and 1 overpass.
