Turkey’s record-long highway tunnel through the Ovit Mountain in the country’s northeast has opened some 137 years after the project was first introduced in the Ottoman era.



The tunnel was opened early on Nov. 22 despite ongoing construction works, after the existing passage on the mountain to the Black Sea province of Rize from the eastern province of Erzurum was blocked by heavy snowfall.

All cars passing through a single tube in the tunnel from both sides were escorted by officials to avoid any accidents in the lack of illumination.

The 14.7-kilometer tunnel originally consists of two tubes. It will become Turkey’s longest highway tunnel once officially opened.

The tunnel is set to cut through Ovit Mountain, which is located between İkizdere district in Rize and the İspir district in Erzurum, to bypass a route that is hampered by bad weather conditions during winter.

And the NW Istanbul section of the Northern Marmara which is not clearly visible on Google maps. When will that be completed?

I see something (junction near Denizli) where the E Istanbul section of the Northern Marmara is to connect to the Izmit Bridge approach so Istanbul should be fully bypassed from N to E soon, 2019?

I think this is D020 until a place called Subaşı. D020 was upgraded to a controlled-access dual carriageway a few years ago.

The O6 is to continue from its current terminus in Odayeri all the way west past the new Airport to west of the Istanbul conurbation and a contract was awarded in 2016.

Other than the eastmost bit of that around the airport...and some clearance west of the airport...not much is visible on Google right now and the imagery is late 2017.

One modern way to check whether a road is under construction is to use Planet Explorer which does not have sparkling imagery but which always has recent cubesat imagery. It is very hard to hide a 6 lane motorway after all.If you register with Planet you can sometimes get imagery the next day, and the cubesat imagery you see is all free. It is damn useful in China too.

Start here so.

https://www.planet.com/explorer/#/mo...40.232/zoom/11

You clearly see a motorway start at the NW corner of the Bursa Bypass and can easily follow it to Izmir (ish)

If you start below you see the Northern Marmara east of Istanbul and it appears the O6 and O5 will meet at Denizli north east of Gebze. But there are missing bits between Denizli and Pasakoy (some may be tunnels). East of Denizli the Northern Marmara disappears after 30 km or so before Kocaeli. Bits and pieces may be visible east of Kocaeli, thats all. 2020 earliest I reckon for the eastern portion.

https://www.planet.com/explorer/#/mo...40.882/zoom/12

The final section I referred to starts here *and goes west) . It is better looking in December than a few months before on Google Earth but it looks like a late 2019 opening to me.

https://www.planet.com/explorer/#/mo...41.229/zoom/12

Finally there is the new 'western bypass' of Istanbul (Bursa to Canakalle) but I do not see anything resembling a new road under construction thee yet.

https://www.planet.com/explorer/#/mo...40.193/zoom/12

The slider control underneath lets you see progress by month. If a job is fast you see month to month changes
