Erdogan first to drive through Istanbul’s Eurasia Tunnel

One of Turkey’s mega projects, Istanbul’s Eurasia Tunnel, has welcomed its first official passenger—Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He drove through the tunnel, which goes under the Bosphorus strait, from Europe to Asia. The 14.6-kilometer tunnel will reduce travel time from 100 minutes to just 15 minutes, and will be used by 100,000 vehicles a day. It was built by a Turkish-Korean joint venture and is expected to open for the public on December 20.
