They're building it,
I don't know why there is a gap between KM 83 and KM 352.

Well the latest Google satellite imagery is here and there is a recent update of an imagery block from Gebze to Bursa.

https://maps.google.com/gallery/deta...g.kz3qtKM-Oia4

It shows the motorway ending in a field SW of Bursa and no construction underway south of that point.

The same Satellite imagery also shows the pillars of the Izmit Bay bridge..as well as the large shadows they cast on the bay and it shows the approach roads to that bridge under construction....down as far as a point just NW of Bursa.

Unlike Politicians I can safely say that Satellites don't lie. There is no evidence that there is a motorway under construction between SW of Bursa and NE of Izmir over a distance of over 200km.

Indeed, you seem to be right. I wonder how many people in Turkey are aware of the fact that the middle part of the project is not u/c.

İstanbul-İzmir's 83-352km section has the same reason as why Ankara-Niğde isn't u/c yet.

The Eurasia Tunnel Project (Istanbul Strait Road Tube Crossing Project), whose foundations were cast on 26 February 2011, will connect the Asian and European sides via a highway tunnel going underneath the seabed. The Eurasia Tunnel will serve the Kazlıçeşme-Göztepe route where vehicle traffic is most intense in Istanbul and will cover a total of 14.6 kilometers.

While 5.4 kilometers of the project will comprise a two-story tunnel to be constructed underneath the seabed using special technology with connecting tunnels to be constructed using other methods, road expansion and improvement works are to be carried out on a total route of 9.2 kilometers on the European and Asian sides. The access roads between Sarayburnu-Kazlıçeşme and Harem-Göztepe will be enlarged. Vehicle underpasses and pedestrian overpasses will be constructed.

Tunnel pass and road improvement-expansion works will cause holistic relief on vehicle traffic. Not only will the travel duration on the route with its highly intensive Istanbul traffic decline from 100 minutes to 15 minutes, but also the privilege of safe and comfortable travel will be experienced. It will also contribute to the reduction of environmental and noise pollution.

Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications and General Directorate of Infrastructure Investments (AYGM) commissioned Avrasya Tüneli İşletme İnşaat ve Yatırım A.Ş. (ATAŞ) for the design, construction and operation of the Eurasian Tunnel Project for approximately 26 years. The Eurasia Tunnel will be transferred to the state on completion of the operating period.

THE PROJECT CONSISTS OF THREE MAIN SECTIONS

European Side

Construction of a U-turn on Kennedy Avenue connecting Kazlıçeşme to Sarayburnu as an underpass, and as a handicapped compatible overpass. Total enlargement of the section involving the current road with a length of approximately 5.4 kilometers increases it from 2x3 and 3x2 lanes to 2x4 lanes.

Bosphorus Crossing

The construction of a two-deck road tunnel with two lanes on each deck, an administrative building on one side and toll plazas and ventilation shafts at both ends of the tunnel.

Asian Side

Widening from 2x3 and 2x4 lanes to 2x4 and 2x5 lanes along an approximately 3.8 km-stretch of the current D-100 road that links at Göztepe to the Ankara-Istanbul State Highway, as well as construction of bridge intersections, one overpass and modernization of pedestrian bridges to allow access by the handicapped.

Ankara-Adana is planned before Erdogan's prime ministry (NOT presidency), so your argument in invalid.

The Nissibi Bridge (D360) was inaugurated today. It's a four-lane cable-stayed bridge across the Euphrates.

Hence double way is actually highway, it's Motorway with green signs. (Otoyol)

A divided highway with 2 or more lanes in each direction. They connect all cities in Turkey, but not many are fully grade-separated.

More like 20,000 kilometers. Turkey is a big country and they invested heavily in four-laning main roads over the past decade. They didn't build many full-standard motorways though.

on the other hand, they have quite high standards for motorways (for instance, 3+3 layout obligation)

Wouldn't it be cheaper for Turkey of some of these four lane roads were upgraded to motorways?
Places like central east Turkey need motorways, so that they have access to Ankara, Adana and of course, Istanbul....is such thing feasible?
