Kanal İstanbul is the Turkish project name of the artificial sea-level waterway, which is proposed to be built by the Republic of Turkey on the European side of Turkey, connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and hence to the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. Kanal İstanbul would bisect the current European side of Istanbul and thus form an island between the continents of Asia and Europe (the island would have a shoreline with the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara, the new canal and the Bosphorus).The new waterway would bypass the current Bosphorus. Kanal İstanbul aims to minimise shipping traffic in the Istanbul Strait and create a safe passage for ships. The canal will be 50 km long, 25 m deep and 400 m wide. The project is intended to be completed for the 100th anniversary in 2023 of the foundation of the Turkish Republic. This date is also when the Turkish government is no longer allowed to collect taxes from the passage of ships through the Bosporus.
