Traffic on the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul resumed after the completion of the towing of the out-of-control tanker RAVA, the directorate of the Turkish Coast Guard reported.
“The tanker was towed out of the Bosphorus Strait and delivered to the anchorage. Traffic on the Bosphorus has been reopened, “ the source said.
As previously reported by the main directorate of the Turkish Coast Guard, the Croatian tanker RAVA, which lost control, because of which the Bosphorus Strait was blocked, is being towed to the anchorage.
Earlier it was reported that due to a steering failure, the tanker began to drift towards the shore near the Yenikei quarter and was stopped 300 meters from the shore by coast guard tugs that urgently arrived at the scene. According to the administration of Istanbul, there are no injuries and no damage to the environment.
