Motorway all the way to Iran woohoo! Iran is ahead of Turkey in building their side. They are only 300 km from the border and the plan for the 300 km is done and the investor and the consertium is already chosen.
Also I think they should build a Hatay-Halep (Aleppo) FW...

Go to previous page, at top is Messi's link for detailed road map of Turkey (27.12.12).
There are 2 ways from IS to IZ, one of them is not always with 4 lanes.

I don't live in Turkey, but I think you won't have any complaints on TR roads.

Hi everyone, I would like your expert help with my trip planning at the west coast of Turkey this summer, going until Izmir.

I plan to enter Turkey from Greece on the E90, turning south on the D550. Which crossing should I choose (fastest, easiest, cheapest) Gelibolu-Lapseki or Eceabat-Canakkale? After that, continue on the D550.

How long would you calculate that this will take? Googlemaps says 8 hours, ViaMichelin says just over 9hrs. Which one is lying? hehe

Also what's the current fuel prices (for normal gas/benzin, not diesel)?

Finally are there any roadworks/improvements on that route until the summer? Anything that will affect time travel?...

Thank you very much for all your time!

I'm not from Turkey, but I traveled that route couple of times. I always crossed Dardaneli at Eceabat-Cankkale. Fast, easy, reliable.

I'm reading now my trip diary, from Greek border to Izmir it was like this:

Border - Eceabat : 1hr 45min
Eceabat - Canakkale (ferry wating and traveling): 50 min
Canakkale - Izmir: 5 hr 40 min

Total: 8 hr 15 min

Hello everyone! My first post!

Here is an example. There are no signs that indicate a speed limit of 110 km/h. Once in a while you see signs that indicate 90 km/h, 70 km/h or 50 km/h. Mostly when you approach a housing area or gas station or a driveway.

That video is mine

Both ferries are from the same operator. Prices are same for both crossings. Ferries run 24/7.
More info http://www.gestasdenizulasim.com.tr/

For a more scenic I would choose Eceabat-Çanakkale. While waiting for the ferry in Eceabat you can choose to visit a park showing the different locations of front lines of WWI on the Gallipoli peninsula.

Between Gelibolu and Eceabat and Çanakkale and Ayvacik roadworks can be expected. Doubling existing lanes do not cause real delays in travel time.

Really? It's more expensive than anywhere in Europe.

It must be a great rip off considering the average Turkish salaries. It's like 5€\l in Europe.
I guess trains and buses are far more competitive than private cars in Turkey.

There are roadworks between Çanakkale - Küçükkuyu

That work zone on the maps : http://goo.gl/maps/eOdJC

From Küçükkuyu to İzmir, it is almost %99 done dual-carriage way with nearly %50 is just made up by HMA (hot mixture asphalt)

Notice that, the minister of department of transportation says " it is going to be 3,500 km of HMA works which is scheduled for 2013 summer period April-October"
