The project which its render was completed is one of the most important works in the coming period as described by the Mayor "Kader Tobash”.

The tunnel will link between the two parts of the city the European, and the Asian, as it will start from "Kabatsh" zone and ends in "Uskudar", at a depth of 20 meters under the Bosporus, and will reach a length of 2 km. Moreover, the tunnel will consist of two floors.
