The construction of a water pipeline between Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) has passed the halfway mark, according to authorities.

The pipeline project, which has been named Baris Su - meaning 'Peace Water' - intends to supply the eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus with fresh water.

Connecting two reservoirs in Turkey and the TRNC, the 80 kilometer pipeline will provide a solution to the island's age-old water crisis.

The pipeline is currently said to be 55% complete, Turkish daily Yeni Safak reported.

Authorities in Turkey have insisted that the Greek Cypriot administration in the south of the island can also benefit from the fresh water pipeline, which could prove to be a catalyst in the ongoing Cyprus peace talks.
