Maybe the road tolls aren't that high because their fuel tax is already insane.

Excellent highways! Are these concrete highways or asphalted ones? In addition, I would also like to know the standard width of each lane and paved shoulder in Turkish highways. I know Turkey is currently not a member of EU, but it has been an associate member of EU for a very long time and its accession into the EU would probably take place by 2013. Under this situation, are there some EU standards for highways that you are supposed to follow? Lastly, are there any speed limits on these highways?

Excuse my ignorance please!

Thank you.

There are no EU standards for motorways. Many European countries have substandard motorways, like in Germany, Spain, Netherlands or Greece.

Are there plans for an Otoyol between Istanbul and the Greek border near Ipsala, now with the Greek A2 nearing completion? It would replace the D110 highway. Maybe they could number it O-5, being about 140 km long.

I also wonder if they will ever build a bridge or tunnel across the Dardanelles near Çanakkale.

Italy's Astaldi bids to build Turkish motorway

MILAN, April 14 (Reuters) - Italy's second-largest builder, Astaldi , said on Tuesday it bid in a tender to build a motorway in Turkey, confirming a newspaper report.

A spokeswoman said the offer was made in a venture with other companies. She declined to give other details, saying the bidding process was still open.

Italian daily Finanza & Mercati said two consortiums, one including Astaldi, had made offers for the estimated $6 billion contract to build a motorway between the Mediterranean port of Izmir and Istanbul.

The report, which cited the Turkish press, said Turkish companies Limak Insaat and Makyol Insaat were also in the running.

Astaldi shares were up 4.26 percent at 3.7925 euros at 1415 GMT, around double the gains posted by the DJ Stoxx construction and building materials index <.SXOP>.

Does "haymana" have the same meaning in Turkish as in Bulgarian - we use this word for criminals or very violent people...

Haymana is the only village in Ankara originally populated by Kurds who moved there during the 17th century so probably it's a Kurdish word.

it's also used in romanian, with the same meaning as in bulgarian, probably due to turkish influence in the area.
