If the plan is realised, motorists will be able to drive from London to New York. Russia hopes the development will spur the economies of remote cities and towns. The Trans-Siberian Railway is about 9,000 kilometres long. According to CNN, a road trip from London to New York would cover about 20,777 kilometers.

Turkey is spending $400+ billion on modernization projects to try and become one of the world's 10 largest economies in the coming decades.

Script: These are the most ambitious megaprojects in development around the world. No other country, with the exception of China and perhaps India, is undergoing a bigger building boom than Turkey. The Turkish government is overseeing a $400 billion spending spree on infrastructure that it hopes will lay the groundwork for a rapid economic rise. The impressive list of projects includes: The $49 billion Istanbul New Airport that’s about half complete. It’ll replace the 93 year old Ataturk Airport and, with a passenger capacity of 150 million a year, it will be one of the planet’s busiest. Istanbul’s advantageous geographical location also helps. “Istanbul, as a hub, is definitely much better location than Doha and Dubai, or Abu Dhabi, so we have these certain advantages compared to other countries.” The $5 Billion Istanbul Finance Center will centralize Turkish investment banking, much like New York City’s Wall Street does for the United States. A 48 km canal is being built alongside the Bosphorous strait that divides not only the city of Istanbul, but the continents of Europe and Asia. At a cost of $10 billion, even Turkey’s President calls it a “crazy project.” Then there’s the $45 billion high speed rail system that at 10,000 km will be the longest in Europe and the second-longest in the world behind China. The $6.5 billion Istanbul-Izmir Motorway Project is a six-lane highway that will connect the eastern edge of Istanbul to the Izmir province on the Aegean coast. Turkey will become a regional energy hub thanks to a $10 billion natural gas pipeline that will connect Azerbaijan’s production facilities with consumers in Europe. Adding to its energy portfolio will be a $5.5 billion refinery on its west coast that, when finished, will be the largest in the country. Turkey is also beefing up its armed forces, spending $7 billion to cluster its defense and aerospace industries so it can increase production and exports to the international market. It has also committed more than $1 billion to develop an independent Turkish space program with the goal of launching 20 satellites into orbit by 2020. All of these projects come on the heels of the completion in 2016 of both the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and the Eurasia Tunnel, two Megaprojects passing over and under the Bosphorus strait. But the country’s main project is much more practical. At a cost of more than $200 billion, Turkey will demolish and reconstruct seven million buildings throughout the country. Why? Because the majority of structures do not meet basic safety standards in a region prone to devastating earthquakes. Government edicts state that the need to implement the urban renewal plan overrules all existing laws that would’ve prevented people’s houses and apartment buildings from being torn down. The reasons for the MegaProject boom are complicated. Yes, Turkey needs to modernize, and the quickest way to do it is for the government to have a strong hand in guiding the nation toward prosperity. But it’s also a blatant attempt by the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan - in power since 2003 - to maintain control over the country by promising economic success. Not only is Erdoğan raising legitimate questions about corruption, his strongman approach is trampling the rights of individuals and local municipalities. On top of that his projections are unrealistically optimistic. Erdoğan says the country can become a top 10 world economy by 2023--which happens to be the 100th anniversary of the modern Turkish republic, and would mark 20-years of his rule. A simple look at where Turkey currently sits on the list of countries ranked by their GDP reveals that it’s economy would have to more than double in less than 6 years, while the economies of Canada and South Korea completely stagnate. That’s simply not going to happen. This high-stakes game was laid bare a couple months ago when Erdoğan narrowly escaped succumbing to a coup that would have seen the country descend into violent internal conflict and even civil war. Sharing its southern border with Syria and Iraq is only adding to the country’s instability.

Drilling works for a roadway tunnel connecting Istanbul’s European and Asian sides, the Eurasia Tunnel, has been completed. The two continents have been connected by a 3.34 km-long tunnel under the sea in the framework of the project, which is also dubbed the Istanbul Straight Road Crossing Project. The drilling works, which were started in April 2014 on the Asian side in a ceremony, attended by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, officially ended on Aug. 22 on the European side in a ceremony with the attendance of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu and Transportation Minister Feridun Bilgin as well as top executives of the construction companies. The total distance of the tunnel will be 5.4 kilometers, 3.34 kilometers of which are under the sea. With the access roads, the Eurasia Tunnel Project’s total distance will be 14.6 kilometers. At its deepest point, the tunnel will be 106.4 meters below the surface. The whole project is planned to be completed in the first quarter of 2017. With the new tunnel, the travel time between the Kazlıçeşme district on the European side and the Göztepe district on the Asian side by car will decrease to 15 minutes during rush hours from around 100 minutes. This will make a positive contribution to the economy by decreasing fuel consumption amounts as well as carbon emission amounts, according to project holders. The project has been realized upon a build-operate-transfer (BOT) model for an investment at $1,2 billion. Some 960 million of this amount was provided through international loans, and the remaining amount was put by the project holders, Yapı Merkezi and SK E&K. According to international standardization reports, the tunnel will last at least 127 years. After the completion of the project, the Eurasia Tunnel Operation, Construction and Investment Co. will run the tunnel in the next 24 years and five months. Then the tunnel’s operational rights will be transferred to the state. Mayor demands one animal sacrifice for each meter With drilling works for a road tunnel connecting Istanbul’s European and Asian sides being completed, Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbaş has issued an unusual request to the public: Sacrifice one animal for each meter of the 3.34 km tunnel and distribute the meat to people in need. The demand was conveyed by Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu at a ceremony to publicize the completion of the undersea work on Aug. 22. If citizens honor Topbaş’s request, they will have to sacrifice a total of 3,340 animals each. Istanbul’s two continents have been connected by the 3.34 km-long under-sea tunnel as part of the Eurasia Tunnel project, which is also dubbed the “Istanbul Straight Road Crossing Project.”

한일 수주 한국 대승, 터키에 세상에서 가장 긴 현수교 짓는다 Korean construction firms are chosen to build the world's longest suspension bridge. Lee Unshin introduces to us the Turkish project looked to breath life into Korea's costruction industry. It's a project to build the longest suspension bridge the world has ever seen. Dubbed the 'Canakkale 1915 Bridge,' it will span the Dardanelles Strait in Turkey, connecting the Lapseki district of Canakkale Province to the Gelibolu district, also known as Gallipoli. A Korean consortium made up of SK E&C, Daelim Industrial and Pyunghwa Engineering Consultants Limited... won the project with a bid of 3.5 trillion won, or about 3-billion U.S. dollars. "This project will be longer than the current longest suspension bridge, Japan's Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, which is 2 kilometers long." And not by a small margin, either -- the new bridge will stretch 3-point-7 kilometers. Among the 24 global companies that bid on it, Japan's Itochu and IHI Corporation have also had their eyes on the project, with strong support from the Japanese government. However, the Korean companies have been entrusted to build, operate and transfer it... thanks to their world-renowned construction skills and local network. "We're known as one of the world's top-three builders of suspension bridges, with distinctive, independent technology and the skills to pull it off." Daelim Industrial built the longest suspension bridge in Korea, the Yi Sun-shin-Daekyo Bridge. And SK E&C, has participated before in numerous construction projects with Turkey, including the Eurasia Tunnel. According to the International Construction Information Service,... last year the nation saw a 40-percent drop in earnings from global construction projects compared to the year before. But having clinched the bid for this multi-billion dollar project, anticipation is high for local builders this year. Work on the Canakkale Bridge will begin in March and is expected to be finished by the year 2023. Lee Unshin Arirang News.

Eurasia Tunnel Project is the construction of a 14.6km road link between the Kazlicesme and Goztepe regions of Turkey, including a 5.4km tunnel, that is being undertaken to address Istanbul's increasing traffic problems. The project is expected to reduce the travel time between Kazlicesme and Goztepe from 100 minutes to just 15 minutes. The 5.4km twin-deck tunnel will be built underneath the seabed of Bosphorus, qalso known as the Istanbul Strait. The project also involves improvement and widening of the roads leading to the tunnel. A ground-breaking ceremony for the project took place on 26 February 2011. Construction is expected to be completed in 55 months, with a daily capacity of 120,000 vehicles in both directions. An investment of $1.1bn is being made in the project.

Eurasia Tunnel http://www.alaturkaonline.com/ The Marmaray's sister, the Eurasia Tunnel, a mega project that allows automobiles transit access between the Asian and European sides of Istanbul under the Bosporus strait and will ease Istanbul's notorious heavy traffic. The tunnel, expected to provide a practical solution to Istanbul's traffic problem, will cut down the travel time between the two sides of Istanbul to just 15 minutes. The Eurasia Tunnel, which will significantly reduce the travel time between Istanbul's Kazlıçeşme on the European side and Göztepe on the Asian side, was planned in connection with the three existing bridges crossing the Bosporus strait. The two-story tunnel, which is 14.5 kilometer long, including a 5.4-kilometer section under the Bosporus, has been constructed for rubber-wheeled vehicles only. It will also reduce the travel time from 100 minutes to 15 minutes on a route with heavy traffic. While the traffic flow will become smoother thanks to the expansion and regulation of connection roads at the entrance and exit points of the tunnel, the tunnel will also help reduce environmental pollution and noise. As the project will be the shortest route between Kazlıçeşme and Göztepe, it will reduce fuel costs, as well as the amount of harmful gas released into the air and the maintenance costs of vehicles. The construction on the tunnel began in 2011 and has cost an estimated $1.25 billion. Built 106 meters under the Bosporus, the tunnel is expected to be used by 100,000 vehicles per day. Instead of the Free Toll Collection System used on the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, the Eurasia Tunnel features counters between each lane, similar to that of the July 15 Martyrs Bridge. To avoid traffic jams, tolls will be collected via automatic systems and there will be no options for cash payments. There are no exclusive lanes for Electronic Toll Collection System (OGS) and Fast Toll Collection System users. Drivers can use all lanes regardless of the system they are using. The tolls will be $4 plus VAT for automobiles and $6 plus VAT for minibuses in one direction in the first year.

Republic Square is the large central town square in Yerevan, Armenia. It is intersected by the streets of Abovyan, Nalbandyan, Tigran Mets Avenue, Vazgen Sargsyan and Amiryan. The square was designed by architect Alexander Tamanian within the 1924 main plan of Yerevan city. The construction of the square started in 1926. The first phase of the construction was completed in 1929. It was further developed until 1952 and finally completed in 1958. The square was known as Lenin Square. The statue of the Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin was erected in the southwestern forehead of the square in 1940 and dismantlement in 1990, prior to the independence of Armenia. It is now replaced with a large TV monitor. The oval shaped square has a stone pattern in the centre, meant to look like a traditional Armenian rug from above. The dancing water fountains are located at the northeastern forehead of the square in front of the National Gallery. The buildings around the square are made of rose and white Armenian tufa stones, fortified on a basalt-made ground anchor. The clock of the Government building tower was made in Moscow and transferred to Yerevan in July 1941. The diameter of the clock is 4 meters, the length of the big hand is 188 cm, while the small hand is 170 cm. The Republic Square is the place where ceremonies and meetings are held with the most notable one is the yearly military show of the Independence Day.

Presented by: Nasri Munfah, PE, Senior Vice President, HNTB and Vojtech Gall, PhD, PE, Principal, Gall Zeidler Consultants. The 13.7m diameter double deck Istanbul Strait Road Tube Crossing is one of the most challenging underwater tunnel projects in the world. Subjected to 11 bars of hydrostatic pressure, variable geology, and being in a very active seismic area, the execution of the project required innovative solutions, sophisticated construction techniques, and prudent risk management approach. The 5km tunnel consists of 3.4km Mixed-Shield TBM bored tunnel, 1 km twin NATM tunnels, and cut and cover sections. The project is being delivered as Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) contract in a public-private partnership. The technical challenges, coupled with financial and commercial risks required the implementation of sophisticated risk management tactic including the provision of Independent Design Verification Process.

Driving from London to New York City would be possible if Russia succeeds in building a superhighway spanning across the country with links to western Europe and Asia. During a March meeting, head of the Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin unveiled an ambitious plan called the Trans-Eurasian Belt Development, which entails constructing a superhighway and an accompanying high-speed railway. If the plan is realised, motorists will be able to drive from London to New York. Russia hopes the development will spur the economies of remote cities and towns. The Trans-Siberian Railway is about 9,000 kilometres long. According to CNN, a road trip from London to New York would cover about 20,777 kilometers. Yakunin said other infrastructure such as oil pipelines, power plants and water supply facilities will be built alongside the highway and high-speed railway. The mega highway system will face a multitude of difficulties, one of them being the connection to Alaska across the Bering Strait. Either a long bridge or a undersea tunnel would be needed. Money is likely to be another challenge. Russian Railways said the construction cost would amount to trillions of dollars. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Script: Having recently completed both the world’s most extensive system of expressways and the planet’s longest high speed rail network, China is now looking beyond its borders for opportunities to keep building. President Xi Jinping announced at a recent summit that Beijing has sealed megaproject deals with 65 countries throughout Eurasia and Africa to construct ports, power stations, rail lines, roads, and all the tunnels and bridges needed to connect them back to mainland China. At a total cost of over $1 trillion, the One Belt, One Road initiative is unprecedented in size and scope. So is the bold funding mechanism: China will use its large, state-run banks to provide most of the financing, a risky move, when you consider how few of the nations in the O.B.O.R. could afford something like this on their own. “Oh,” say the leaders of economically-challenged, underdeveloped Laos, Yemen, or Ethiopia — or the blood-soaked regime of Bashar al-Assad in war-ravaged Syria — “you want to loan us billions of dollars to build some cool stuff in our countries? Of course, why not!?” China is hard-selling the project as a way to boost its westward connections, an update of the silk road trade route that played a significant role in developing China and the rest of the region 1,000 years ago. But many analysts see this comparison as little more than a marketing pitch. Al Jazeera clip: “Is the real point of this, East-West service then simply to boost China’s westward connections? [Pauline Loong] “Well I wouldn’t say simply to boost China’s westward connections, but I totally agree with Charles that it’s more a PR stunt. To call it the “Silk Road,” that’s really brilliant—evocative of romantic camel travels in the past. When, you know, you have these lovely silks and trade and so forth. And it’s good, because look at all the headlines it has been getting, but in practical terms, it’s early days yet.” [Bryce] Aside from the lessons China learned from its own recent infrastructure boom, Beijing is also drawing inspiration from the American Marshall Plan which financed the rebuilding of Western Europe after it was decimated during the second world war. That program was worth the equivalent of $130 billion in today’s dollars and ensured the US had reliable export markets for the manufactured goods and machinery its growing economy had become dependent on producing. China’s modern version — first announced in 2013 — is the signature initiative of President Xi Jinping. Several projects have already been completed. Earlier this year London became the 15th European city connected directly to China through an ever-expanding global rail system, meaning freight trains loaded with goods can now arrive after a 12,000km journey all the way from the east coast of the landmass. And, at a cost of $4 billion, China also just completed Africa’s first transnational electric railway, which runs 466 miles from Djibouti to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. Chinese companies designed the system, built the line, and supplied the train cars...

From mysterious tools to even an entire tunnel system being found using the latest technology, these discoveries are truly amazing! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 8.Tartaria Tablets In 1961 the Tartaria Tablets were discovered during an archeological excavation at a Neolithic site in Romania. The tablets are a little over two inches across and are inscribed on one side with different images like a horned animal and a tree. Scientists from around the world examined the artifacts and carbon dating was used to reveal that the tablets were over 6500 years old, meaning they were examples of the earliest form of writing in the world. 7.Dobrogea Underground Labyrinth 33 miles from Constanta, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Romania, lies a huge underground labyrinth. Starting in 1916, researchers began to investigate the labyrinth and discovered ancient remains left by human beings such as carved walls and ceilings and very old ceramic fragments. Thanks to these remains we know that the cave was inhabited from between the first and tenth century A.D. It is a very vast and confusing labyrinth and the people that inhabited the labyrinth had to use a marking system to avoid getting lost. 6.Pestera Muierii Fossil Inside of the Pestera Muierii caves of Romania a 35000 year old fossil was discovered. Uncovered in 1952 this fossil of a woman with rugged traits is the oldest known fossil to be discovered in Romania. This fossil also helps support the theory that ancient humans went back to Africa after journeying to Eurasia. 5.Mysterious Ancient Complex Object Discover in the beginning of 1974 by construction workers in central Romania, no one knows what this ancient tool was used for and, at first, no one cared. For 21 years after its discovery it lay in a storage room at the Museum of Transylvania. Finally, in 1995 it was analyzed and it was discovered that it was a metal piece made mostly of aluminum. With two indented holes and a two fin shaped protrusion at one end, it is speculated that it could have been part of a larger tool, but the true use and origins of this millennia old piece remains a mystery to this day. 4.Romanian Skull For people in the west discovering romanian culture, both ancient and current, can be quite bizarre and different, something we are not used to or accustomed to. In peasant culture there is a very strong belief in the undead and the evil eye. Magic is regarded as something very real and powerful. Perhaps this can explain the mysterious skull that was found in Romania because it is hard to find another explanation for this warped, bizarre looking fossil. 3.Bronze Matrix Of Sarmizegetusa In 2013 there was a huge storm that uprooted a tree in the Romanian city of Sarmizegetusa Regia. In the hole left by the fallen tree lay a very unique bronze matrix. Known as one of the most important archeological discoveries ever made in the area it is the only known matrix of its kind ever discovered in the area. It has a hexagonal shape and is covered with the outlines of several animals. The over 2000 year old piece was used by a jewelry designer to create matrixes that helped to mold precious metals into jewelry. This piece is a sneak peak into the way our ancient ancestors live making it invaluable. 2.The Sibiu Manuscripts Published in 1967 in the Romanian Historical Review this manuscript describes a rocket launch into space. What is truly bizarre and dumbfounding is that this rocket launch took place in 1555. According to the 450 page manuscript thousands of people witnessed this event, which took place in what is today the Romanian city of Sibiu. The manuscript describes the rocket launch as a complete success. This is the first known manuscript on rockets in the world and the type of rockets described in the documents were later launched at Cape Kennedy and used in several space programs! 1.Bucegi Mountain Tunnel System In 2003, with the use of brand new satellite technology, the Pentagon discovered that there was a system of tunnels and caves underneath an ancient sphinx in the Bucegi Mountains of Romania. There is a cloud of mystery surrounding what was found and there are many rumors connected to the discovery. It was reported that a representative of the Illuminati was sent to the site shortly after the discovery. It was also rumored that the remains of giants were found inside the tunnels. Conspiracy theorists would say that an effort has been made by the government to hide what was actually found inside of these tunnels. With a lack of any kind of hard evidence all that one can do is speculate as to what was actually found inside of these recently discovered tunnels.
