Do we need crazy projects?

“Turkey on Jan. 15 unveiled the ‘most appropriate’ route for the planned Canal Istanbul project, an artificial sea-level waterway that would run parallel to the Bosphorus connecting the Black Sea to the Marmara Sea,” Hürriyet Daily News has recently reported.

“The Küçükçekmece-Sazlıdere-Durusu corridor has been chosen as the most appropriate route for Canal Istanbul,” Transportation, Maritime and Communications Minister Ahmet Arslan had said in a news conference in Ankara on Jan. 15.

The news article provided some numbers regarding the project: The route would extend for a length of 45 kilometers, and the canal will be able to host 160 vessels a day and thus provide relief to shipping traffic, particularly oil tanker traffic, which currently has to wait in order to pass through the Bosphorus.
