The first picture looks quite American actually. I hope that I haven't insulted anyone now

There's an important projected motorways network but , from what I know, the construction of motorways is almost blocked for years.
This basic network is essential in a country where traffic accidents are so many and roads are overloaded with trucks.
So Ankara-Pozanti (Adana) may wait several years more.

What's the reason of this block? Aren't turkish road crowded? Because there are a lot of important cities not yet fully connected by motorway?

Can anyone tell me something about the road quality between Istanbul and Izmir. I see on the map there are not many motorways between the two. According to TomTom the best option is via Bursa and Balikesir, it's 564 km and it takes about 7 h. ViaMichelin gives the same distance and itinerary, but says it takes almost 9 h. And what's the actual fuel price in Turkey (unleaded and diesel)? Thanks!

One answer from Bulgaria. Road quality between Istanbul and Izmir is generally good, if you follow the main routes. Most of the road is 2x2, but not motorway (incl. the last say 150 km before Izmir). The Turks prefer the ferry Istanbul - Bandirma (boarding at Yenikapi) and then Balikesir - Manisa - Izmir (prices and timetable are available here, you only pay for the car). Ask them for the fuel prices but they are like 0,20 Euro higher.

They will built Istanbul-Izmir highway.
It will cost 6,5 Bil USD (including 2km long suspension bridge over the the marmarasea)

Red = planned highway


For years they plan to built a bridge across the Dardanelles, but currently there are no new plans
