Urban Exploration in Istanbul: exploring the first intercontinal tunnel under the Bosphorus, connecting Istanbul’s Asian and European sides via an undersea commuter train line: the Marmaray project.

The project aims to ease İstanbul’s heavy traffic and reduce travel time between the two sides of the Bosporus to four minutes. Marmaray, the world’s first undersea tunnel connecting two continents, will carry 75,000 passengers per hour and around 1 million passengers per day.

We explored its dimension during a trip in 2008, the images are stills from a video we did during this trip.
