Kasımpaşa – Hasköy Tunnel was put into service in Istanbul…

The Kasımpaşa - Hasköy Tunnel and its intersections and link roads built by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) was put into service today.

Distances in Istanbul are being shortened by tunnels. The Kasımpaşa - Hasköy Tunnel was opened with the participation of President Recep Tayyip ERDOĞAN and Prime Minister Binali YILDIRIM, Mr. Ahmet Arslan, the Minister of Transportation, Maritime and Communications, Mr. Berat Albayrak, the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Mr. Mevlüt Uysal, the mayor of Istanbul, Istanbul residents and valued guests.

As part of the “Seven Hills, Seven Tunnels” project, the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) has put the another highway tunnel in the city of Istanbul into service with the completion of the Kasımpaşa - Hasköy Highway Tunnel. With a length of 2,550 meters, it will greatly ease the traffic burden between Kasımpaşa and Hasköy districts of Istanbul.

Kasımpasa- Hasköy Road Tunnel, which was constructed between Kasımpasa and Haskoy districts, which has two tubes, each with two tracks and has a length of 1234 m and 1316 m and the construction works started in 2011.

It is going to provide a safe and fast journey through the historical part of Istanbul and improve the standards of the Kasımpasa Haskoy Street. What makes this project so difficult is that the whole alignment passes under a residential area and the most of the area is historical and protected zone.
