The second longest double tunnel in the world will open soon… it is embraced by Turkey

The Regional Director of Highways in Turkey, Mehmet Aşık, announced that the construction work of the “Zigana” tunnel is 99% complete, which will be the longest double tunnel in Europe and the second in the world, pointing out that the opening date of the tunnel has become very soon, without specifying the exact date.

The Zigana Tunnel is located in northeastern Turkey, on the historic Silk Road, which connects the eastern Black Sea region with the Middle East, the Caucasus and Iran, with a length of 14.5 km in each direction.

The tunnel work began in April 2016, to shorten more than forty minutes to the current road, at a cost of more than one billion Turkish liras.
