Welcome back, Richest fans! Hidden within Istanbul, the biggest city in Turkey, sits an underwater highway that connects two continents over the Bosphorus Strait! Those being Europe and Asia. Known as the Eurasia Tunnel, this engineering marvel opened in 2016 and cost well over a billion dollars! It was created to help reduce pollution in the area. Today, we’re going to take an in-depth look at the tunnel. We’ll explore all of its facts and features to see whether it’s been a success or not. We’ll also look at the nearby railway underpass, the Marmaray Tunnel, and the massive cost of the venture.
Now for the spoiler paragraph. If you like surprises, we suggest you stop reading and watch the video multiple times. We start by seeing just how large this project was. Both for the tunnel, and overall. Then, we’ll see how much the various investors contributed to the project. Including a South Korea company that started a joint venture to manage the Eurasia Tunnel. Next, we’ll look at the construction history on how this project was created. The amount of material needed is astonishing. We’ll then examine the various safety features the tunnel contains, mostly thanks to Bosch. Eurasia even has its own pricey transport museum to highlight the work that went into birthing it. And the museum is very high-tech! We’ll then see the Marmaray Tunnel and how the discovery of ancient artifacts caused it to be delayed for years. Finally, we’ll briefly look at one of the most expensive waterfront houses in Turkey, the Marshal Zeki Pasha mansion.
