Kolin - Kalyon won the European part tender, while Limak - Cengiz won the Anatolian part tender.
That's pretty much all we know.

It is on road D765, between Ilgaz and Kastamonu. It looks like it is 5488 meters long.

Lower deck is as comfortable as upper deck. Definitely not claustrophobic.

That's a difference from A86 Duplex in Paris, which has a clearance of only 2 meters.

I filmed it last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO_jr-zewYc

I think that the new motorway section is not yet opened. Is there any estimated opening date? Any time in 2017?

The estimated opening time was December 28 mentioned in several news pieces on the 10th of December, however there has been no official confirmation in the media so I can guess that it has been delayed. However I don't live in Turkey and my Turkish is not very good at all so better wait for someone from the Turkish section of the forum before updating the estimated opening.

The Bursa - Izmir O5 motorway is visible in parts with earthworks seen around Balikesir in recent imagery and works are also visible further south from Kirkagac to Izmir

The southern half might well be done by end 2018 but the northern half has not started yet.

Bursa-Gemlik and İzmir-Kemalpaşa is delayed a little bit.
But I don't know new opening date.

When is the connection (the red dotted line shown on the map below) going to take place? And also are there any plans to be prolonged to the northern I/C of the bypass (O3) of Edirne?

I guess it actualized, I remember I saw such bridge over the river.

Since the bridge is too wide for current roads, I assume it's going to be connected to the TEM.

Both bridges across Bosphorus have been closed to traffic by Turkish army without official motivation. Apartently there's a serious (political? security?) crisis ongoing.

Interestingly, the presumed road number (O-6) has been left blank on these signs.

There's also that blank E-road space, maybe redirecting E-80 out of the city when the whole project is complete?

That would make sense, but I doubt how many people in Turkey actually use the E-numbering system to navigate across the country. In most of Europe the system is hardly used and most people follow their GPS, not E-numbering (or any signage in general).

UNECE defines only the cities where the E-routes run through, they do not define which road an E-number precisely takes, so road authorities have some liberty in selecting the route. Though there does not seem to be any authoritative power used by UNECE to enforce the usage of E-numbers, some countries have posted the wrong E-numbers for decades (such as Italy which has posted E31 signs on the E33 route for over 30 years now).

Those numberless shields remind me of the new motorway to open in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which had similar things.

UNECE ratifies and records only the cities where the E-routes run through.

It might choose not to (normally when only one country proposes a multi-country change) ratify, it might request a different number before it ratifies, but it doesn't define the routes. All the initiative is with the member states as to where E roads run*, the UNECE merely administrating a document with veto power.


*with the exception of Central Asia and the expansion there in the early 00s where it seems the UNECE proposed some routes, but them in the agreement and then the member states were able to alter routings (unless it was the E004 travelling where there was no road, as bizarrely the UNECE (or at least whomever was on the committee for AGR that annual meeting) put their foot down and denied the change, while happily allowing many other Kazakh changes). Oh, and the 1985 changes that meant that the E31 in Italy became the E33.
