Giant Mole Lowered Underground in Narlıdere Metro: Excavation works are accelerated in Narlıdere Metro, which is under construction by İzmir Metropolitan Municipality. kazanThe first of two giant tunnel boring machines, called the diracak TBM, was lowered underground. The giant diggers, which will reach 100 meters in length and 450 tons in weight after the assembly process, outshines even the world's largest passenger plane, Airbus 380.

İzmir Metropolitan Municipality will accelerate the construction works in Narlıdere Metro, which is prepared to be a new breath to the traffic by facilitating urban transportation, with the 2 Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). By using TBMs, it will be done by deep tunnel technique and even the traffic infrastructure and social life problems that will occur during the works will be minimized. Modern tunneling machines will also allow for a safer tunnel construction.

Two 450 ton giants

İzmir Metropolitan Municipality will work in double tube double CPC during the construction of Narlıdere subway. The pieces of TBM, which started to be downloaded by the expert team to the tunnel entrances, will be re-established here and made ready for excavation works.

The 100 meter-long 6.6 meter-size 450's first CPC's cutting head unit was mounted at the Balçova station tunnel entrance. After the Ramadan Feast, the test work is expected to begin with CPCs, an average of 20 meters per day will do excavation.

TBMs, which have become increasingly important among advanced tunneling activities in the world, are also called “Underground tunnel factory” due to their functions. These “giant moles”, as they say among the people, carry out tunnel excavation and support works together. TBMs, which stand out with their extraordinary power, can easily adapt to hard rock ground conditions with the versatile cutter head.

It's all going underground.

This new subway of Izmir, which starts from Balçova district and ends in Narlıdere district, will pass the entire distance of 7.5 kilometers to the underground. There will be 7 station in Narlıdere Metro. Within the scope of the project, 1 units will be connected to 6 pieces underground station, 4 pieces scissor tunnel, 9 pieces production shaft and 2 pieces storage line.

The first site visited by President Soyer

The first construction site visited by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer was Narlidere Metro, and Mayor Soyer received detailed information about the projects and works.

Larger than the largest passenger plane

Being one of the biggest construction equipment in the world with its length of 100 meters, the TBMs of İzmir surpasses even the 72-meter passenger plane Airbus 380 in terms of its dimensions.
