    Istanbul will be divided by a second Channel.
    It will be 25 meter deep, 150 meter width and 45 km long.
    The channel will go through the Thracian side of Istanbul and will connect Black sea with Marmara Sea.
    Bosphorus is one of busiest waterways in the world and all traffic will be relocated to the new channel, through which 300.000 Tonnes DWT Ships will be able to pass.

    Region's biggest airport with 60 million capacity, new harbour will be built on side of channel with financial and congress districts.
    All modern features of a city will be relocated and historical city-center preserved.

    Erdogan has it just announced in press-conference.
    There was also a Computer Animation displayed how the project looks.
    That video might get online in a while.

    There are already constructed 2 underwater-tunnels for the Bosphorus. The 1st is Marmaray and is for trains, the 2nd is for automobiles and is in contracting phase.
    With the "Channel Istanbul" project there will be built a 3rd bridge over the Boshorus also.

    The Channel itself will get
    - 4 bridges (7 billion $)
    - On both sites 2 new cities
    - 60 million passenger Airport (10 billion $)

    Total cost stands at 40 billion $.

    Ambitious ‘Kanal İstanbul’ project expected to create 2 million jobs

    Legal aspects.

    Russia urges Turkey to preserve Montreux Treaty - Hurriyet Daily News and Economic Review

    In TV there were some ex-Diplomats from the Foreign Ministry, they said that Montreaux Treaty will be enforced on the new Strait.
    The Bosphorus itself shall become an area for watersports and likewise events (PM Erdogan) and keep it clean and secure.
