Water cuts in Istanbul for 30 hours
The water outage will be implemented in some neighborhoods of Istanbul between Sept. 25 and Sept. 27 for a total of 30 hours, the Istanbul Water and Sewage Administration (İSKİ) announced in a statement on Sept. 23.
The cuts will be made between the hours of 9 p.m. on Sept 25 and 3 a.m. on Sept. 27 within the framework of the Northern Marmara Highway construction project—a motorway that will connect the new airport with the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge (also called the Third Bosphorus Bridge).
The water cuts will be seen in various neighborhoods of Esenyurt, Avcılar, Başakşehir, Arnavutköy, Çatalca, Büyükçekmece, Küçükçekmece, Sultangazi and Eyüpsultan districts—all located on the European side.
The Northern Marmara Motorway is currently partly under construction with a completed section already opened to the north of Istanbul. The completed section of the highway crosses the Bosphorus Strait via the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge.
The route aims to serve as the outermost beltway of Istanbul in addition to being the third motor-crossing of the Bosphorus.
