The huge pipeline project from Turkey to North Cyprus is 8 months behind schedule. Water supply, which costs 25 million Turkish liras, to be completed in November 2014, not in March 2014, as was originally intended.
Due to the storm conditions and waves during the winter months, it was decided not to lay pipes in the winter. This kind of pipeline, which is 80 km long, is the first in the world, and will pass 250 meters under the sea. Experts say that the volume of water will be enough for TRNC for 50 years. 50.5% of the water will be drinkable, and 49.5% will be used for agricultural purposes.
