The article presents information on the construction of the world's deepest sunken tube tunnel, which are emerging from dry docks on the Marmara Sea coastline, Istanbul. The 1.4-kilometer-long twin tube will carry a new $3-billion urban railroad under the Bosporus waterway, to link the Asian and European sides of the Turkish city. Upgrading the route and installing equipment will form the project's largest single contract, largely funded by European Investment Bank loans.
