Il Tunnel (Istanbul 2.0)

We entered the construction site of Marmaris Tunnel, the new Erdogan’s project that will connect Europe and Asia under Bosphorus Strait into 2013. 1700 workers employed at the site for japanese Taisei company (including 60 japaneses), the tunnel is placed 56 mt under the sea level in his deepest part. Mobile phone working down there – bikes also). Here’s the video I shot down there there. And on website of Ansa’s news agency you can also find an account-reportage about this visit and an exploration of archeological discovers on the opposite side of the tunnel, in Yenikapi.
