About the SAP (Southeast-Anatolia-Project) I will write later.
But the exports from SAP are processed through Mersin port.

Its capacity will be raised from
1.7 Million TEU to
12 Million TEU
Ministry of Transport and Communication
http://www.ubak.gov.tr/BLSM_WIYS/UBA..._204_1_64.html


It will replace Rotterdam port as Europe's biggest Port.
Rotterdam = 10.8 Million TEU
Port of Rotterdam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


It is designed to function as the central Hubport of South-Coast Turkey.
Blue is the expansion.

CERN... In the Middle-East there will be a mini-CERN built in Jordan under the SESAME project.

SESAME is coordinated by UNESCO, and its components come from recycled components of USA, Germany, UK, Switzerland and France.
Under SESAME, scientists from Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine Authority and Turkey come together.
It will be a mini-CERN of Middle-East.

...but Turkey has started to look at its national needs for an accelerator center. TAC would be a much larger facility built in Turkey’s backyard, making the study of particle physics much more accessible.
(...)
The design plan for the TAC is to have a combination of an electron linear accelerator and a positron storage ring that could be used individually or as a unit for a wide range of experiments. This would be the second combination complex build in recent years; the Beijing Electron Positron Collider also combines a particle collider and an X-ray light source.

It will be built on Ankara University, Ankara University also is coordinator between the involved universities:

- 10 Turkish Universities

But it is not yet finished.

Scope:

Also Euphrates and Tigris are under control.

Tunnel finished in 2008.
Whole Project finished in 2013.

Quote:
rail transportation in Istanbul is predicted to rise from 3.6% to 27.7%,
which would see Istanbul's percentage rate of rail transportation usage as the third highest in the world, behind Tokyo (60%) and New York City (31%).[4]
