It is certainly true that there are a number of beautifully contructed 6 lane motorways in Turkey with hardly any traffic on them. Definitely a case of future proofing.

Turkey has fabolous motorways and it's really pitty that we don't have somebody from Turkey here who could post us his own photos, i really miss it!

btw, i have noticed that there is not a lot of traffic on those motorways and i don't see a reason for 3x3, although it is really great to have a lot of 3x3 motorways! of course, i exclude motorways near large cities which are too crowded and 6x6 often wouldn't be enough. such a contrast!

It's surprising to see that most of turkish motorways are built in a six-lane standard. Much more convenient but I wonder if they will ever be fully utilized.

i think its mostly 3 lane, because Turkey isn't a flat country. Its very hilly, so you need a extra lane for the slow trucks.
Another reason is the increasing number of cars in Turkey

I am also in favour of building 2x2 lanes outside urban areas. The money could be spent in other highway projects. With the constructions which will begin this year we'll have a completed highway network in Turkey.

Except for tunnels are the extra costs for a 3rd lane not very expensive. This way, Turkey can stay ahead of traffic jams in rural area's for a time. They did build 2x2 lane motorways in the Netherlands and Germany from then 1950's until the 1980's, which are now pretty congested, all wishing they had a 3rd lane from the start.
