The impressive engineering project- 15 km long, 5.4 km kilometres of which run 106m beneath the sea bed linking Istanbul's Kazlıçeşme and Göztepe districts through the Bosphurus Strait- has been inaugurated in December 2016 after only 55 months of work.
Thanks to the two separate levels, one for each direction of traffic, the Eurasia Tunnel has improved the environmental quality, both in terms of atmospheric and acoustic pollution, by reducing traffic circulation and travel times in the Turkish city.
The lighting project is characterized by lines of LED light and the colour blue with a clear reference to the iconographic elements of the Turkish tradition. In fact, the project is capable to integrate functional and architectural light with safety and visual comfort. For this purpose, the following iGuzzini products were used: 2,000 Trick
, Led Tube
RGB and Linealuce
