Abstract

The Marmaray Project, in the scope of which the railway tunnel below the Istanbul Strait will be built, is described. Upon completion of this system, the Istanbul's existing suburban railway system will be fully upgraded, and a proper link will be established between Europe and Asia. 13.4 km of railway will be built below the ground level. Project objectives are presented, and highly complex technical problems, presenting a veritable challenge to the builders, are described. A special emphasis is placed on efforts that are being invested in preserving and protecting historic heritage.
