Well;
1 - Mountanious terrain, especially in north, south and eastern parts of the country.
2 - Cost, dividing a 2-lane road to 4-lane is cheaper than building a new 3x2 motorway

Could someone please explain the color scheme used on the map? GT gives me a funny translation.

If a country has a large network of 1+1 roads with hard shoulders they can be retrofitted to 2+2 quite easily and cheaply. The main problem is at grade entrances and exits and going through towns rather than around them.

But a very good way of adding capacity , increasing speeds to 110kph in the main and removing head on collisions.

By way of illustrating the current network here is a vid of the current Istanbul - Bursa road roughly at the midpoint...a new 3x3 Istanbul - Bursa motorway is being built along the route of the Izmit bridge crossing west of here.

Own shots from Antalya, taken yesterday;

End of D-650, connecting to D-400 and Çakırlar road(former 07-75) which connects to new Eastern Beltway;


07-75;


Traffic jam due to beltway;


Duraliler approach to new West Beltway;


Entering beltway. As you see, interchanges aren't built yet;


Completed part of beltway;


But it's not totally yet, so;


the rest is D-400, which going to Kemer and other west Mediterranean districts, featuring a few tunnels (taken 4 years ago);

A colleague of mine went to Turkey, and noted the high frequency of fuel stations along D400 between Antalya and Alanya. I took a look at Google Earth and his statement of 'one fuel station every kilometer' seems to be rather accurate. Is there a reason for this?

Well, here in Kuşadası very often... RO, BG, D and SRB are top of this list. Sometimes B, CH, MD, GB, SYR and NL and just today two very special ones (and also new for me here): a Russian Lexus RX (...51) from Murmansk and a French Mercedes Vito Camper (...972) from Guadeloupe.

Most times this doesn't mean the car has really travelled that far -in newer French plates you can put the département you like most, regardless of the one where the vehicle is actually registered.

When I was in Kuşadası in 1999 I saw a car from Macedonia. (or maybe it was in nearby Ephesus/Efes, not sure)

Third Bosphorus Bridge

The infrastructure around the Third Bosphorus Bridge is now well visible in Google Earth.

Satellite:


Drawn on a map:


I believe other sections of the 'North Marmara Motorway' have encountered some obstacles. There are no good extensions yet towards Silivri and Gebze, making the new bridge quite a detour for long-distance traffic until those extensions are constructed.

Towards Silivri it's not so bad, but there's clearly missing a link to Gebze. Shape reminds me of the Skopje bypass.

They only tendered the western bit of the Marmara a few months back. I think that is the last tender west of the Bosphorus. If they finish it to around Gebze thats the important bit anyway.
