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).
But pre-1980s' "E-5" is still popular for Istanbulite people.

By highway, do you mean 2x2 divided road or 3x2 motorway (aka those green signed Otoyol)

You MUST AVOID that confusion.

İt is definately a highway, not "devlet yolu".

Own shots from Ankara-Afyon-Isparta roads. Taken two months ago after week long friends-visit vacation in Ankara;


Approaching an overpass construction;


Luckily, its detour is not so long;




Yeah it's taken near Efes beer factory, while reaching to Afyon;


Speaking of the 'Karahisar;


Obviously, TIR vehicles are not allowed to enter the city center beyond the cloverleaf as they have to use the beltway;


Before turning left;


Through Afyon beltway with some signage (including ads);




Approaching to recently completed overpass;


Hope they've fixed it during that two months. Coach bus just turned left for rest stop of "Kolaylı";

D-300 - 13.4.17 by Onur Taner, on Flickr

After the rest, approaching another overpass which is used for U-turn purposes...


...for both ways;


Before turning left through the trumpet;


more to come.

Part II - Afyon-Isparta D-650

Yeah, D-650 has a few kilometers of break by merging with D-300 in Afyon;


After the left turn, there's another U-turn overpass;


Arch footbridge of Akören;


Provincial road alert


Some kilometrage info;


That split on kilometrage sign is intentional of course


Another provincial road crossing. And yeah, that provincial is an alternative route to Konya;


Provincial border and some more signage;




I know, the crossing is a bit odd,


but passed by a curve


while exiting Keçiborlu;


Before the approaches for...


...both Airport,


...650-685 split,


(Yeah, you can go to Antalya by two ways)


(while 685 works for easter districts of Antalya like Serik, Manavgat and Alanya)


...Isparta entrance,


...and University. Fin Ultima;

I am happy to remember the trips on this route to Antalya. East side, ofcourse.
From Afyon to Isparta , I can say that I saw how the expressway was built.

A top official has refuted claims about the unprofitability of the recent three major transport projects creating an extra burden on state funds.

Several reports have recently said the number of passengers crossing the Osmangazi Bridge over the Gulf of İzmit, the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge over the Bosphorus, and the recently-opened Eurasia Tunnel have lagged the planned numbers originally foreseen.

The megaprojects have been built based on the public-private partnership (PPP) model. All PPP projects involve guarantees, meaning a guaranteed minimum profit for the contractors, both local and foreign, no matter how the projects perform once they become operational.

Criticism has been leveled over the lack of transparency and public scrutiny of these projects. In addition, several reports have said the number of passengers who use these new transport projects is so low that the projects are creating a serious burden on citizens’ wallets, due to the original guarantees provided to the operating companies.

An 11 kilometer segment of motorway opened to traffic yesterday on the east side of Istanbul.

http://www.ntv.com.tr/ekonomi/kuzey-...YEKWQPuDJbEVig

It appears to be the segment from Paşaköy to O-4 near Pendik. Which means you don't need to use D020 anymore to get to the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge.
