Why in Istanbul bus lanes in these pics do busses run on left?

It's Metrobus line. Metrobus vehicles has exit doors on their right side that's why
In the middle of expressway. Not allowed to other cars in except Metrobus vehicles.

Great pics, _Sha_!

Why is one motorway sign green and the other one blue? Does Turkey use both of them, like Italy or Albania? What's the difference?

Thanks!
GREEN SIGNS mean, highway & highway passing through city urban area and after toll plazas these highways are called expressway (ネvreyolu) Green signed highways in Istanbul are part of TEM (Trans European Motorway) and in Ankara, Izmir and Bursa (cities which located in Asia), I think green signed highways will be connected to TEM in the future.
Ankara - Istanbul highway (Anatolian Highway) has already been connected with TEM.
BLUE SIGNS mean, to show intercity roads / connections which do not have highway standards.
WHITE SIGNS mean, to show urban / metropolitan areas in the city (the city center or suburb for example)

Istanbul is a traffic horrorscene. It's almost always jammed because the metropolitan area of 11 million have only 2 through motorways.

If it's firstly green and second blue; it's the end of highway to national road or exit from highway into national road.
If it's firstly blue and second green; it's the beginnig of highway or entrance to highway from national road.

Unfortunately you're right
The higways and expressways in Istanbul are not adequate. Everyday tens of new cars are attending to traffic but we still have 2 transit highways which are connected with Bosphorus bridges.
But I think the goverment is planning 3rd Bosphorus bridge and new expressway now for the north part of city but most of people (including me)
do not support this project because of the risk of pillage of environment.

By the way, our metropolitan cities have population;
Istanbul : 12 573 836 est. 2007
Ankara : 4 466 756 est. 2007
Izmir : 3 739 353 est. 2007
Bursa : 2 439 876 est. 2007

Traffic jams are bad for the environment too, but Istanbul needs more of a world mass transit rather than cover the whole city with LA style motorway network.

Istanbul has a very small metronetwork for it's size. Only one real subway line, the rest is light rail or suburban rail.
