History of Channel Istanbul
The history of the alternative waterway project to the Bosphorus goes back to the Roman Empire. The Sakarya River Transport Project was mentioned for the first time in the correspondence between the Governor of Bitinya Plinius and the Emperor Trajan.
The idea of connecting the Black Sea and Marmara with an artificial strait has come up 16 times since the 6th century. One of the three major projects planned by the Ottoman Empire in the mid-1500s was to connect the Sakarya River and Sapanca Lake to the Black Sea and Marmara. It came to the fore in 3 during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent. Although the two great architects of the period, Mimar Sinan and Nicola Parisi, preparations were started, the realization of this project was canceled due to the wars.
Kanal İstanbul Project Technical Information
Will be implemented on the European side of the city. An artificial waterway will be opened between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea in order to ease ship traffic in the Bosphorus, which is currently an alternative passage between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. At the point where the channel meets the Sea of Marmara, one of the two new cities foreseen to be established by 2023 will be established. With this channel, the Bosphorus will be completely closed to tanker traffic and two new peninsulas and a new island will be formed in Istanbul.

Dams and Lakes to be Used
According to the plan, the beginning of Channel Istanbul will be adjacent to Istanbul Airport. The most important reason for the Ministry to choose this route is that most of the land located on the canal axis belongs to the treasury and that the Sazlıdere Dam and Küçükçekmece Lake will be utilized at maximum level when the channel is opened.
Excavation work will be carried out in 16 km of the area outside the Sazlıdere Dam and Küçükçekmece Lake. The definitive route of Istanbul's crazy project will be Yeniköy-Sazlıdere Dam-Arnavutköy-Başakşehir-Küçükçekmece Lake.

According to the Reconstruction Plan, the Channel will start from Yeniköy in the North and will be adjacent to the 3rd Airport. A luxurious marina will be built at the northern and southern ends of the Canal, which is planned to be 44 km long and 200 meters wide. The most important reason for the Ministry to choose this route is that most of the land located on the channel axis belongs to the treasury. According to the data prepared in the plan, most of the land that the channel passes through is used in agriculture. The project also planned to provide maximum benefit from Sazlıdere Dam and Küçükçekmece Lake. Sazlıdere Dam will be in the canal.
