No the darker side is Turkish side Anyway it's an old viaduct...

We have Motorway(Otoyol) through Bulgaria that's because geographically Bulgarian border connects TEM Motorway through Western Europe. So main border is Turkish-Bulgarian border for Turkey. But i am not sure what kind of road do we have through Greece... probably a simple road, but quality asphalt

Technically about one mile of the M6 in Ireland is 1-way, only because due to motorway building works and junction layout, only one direction of route '6' is under motorway classification!

But that will change soon.

Yes i know that, but Turkey should build a motorway to continue the Egnatia, and the traffic load between our countries is quite big nowadays, so they should upgrade the road if you ask me, and i believe that there are plans to do so.

Ah well sorry for the off topic anyway

The Charleroi R9 is an example of a one way motorway.

Due to the quality of Belgian roads you can't ride any faster

Yes. Usually they change directions according to the traffic - in the morning towards cities, in the afternoon away from cities. But the inner Charleroi ring in Belgium is one-way always in the same direction, it's a ring anyway; however that's more of a slow expressway (60 km/h).

For years, Imigrantes motorway, linking São Paulo to Santos, on the coast, had only one direction and was reversible on a 15km stretch on the mountains. It was auxiliary of Anchieta highway, that runs parallel but this one has an older design. Since 2002, a new road was built and now is fully motorway on both directions.

Ok this is mine

I agree we need motorway between two countries, but I dont see any development for future at least in Turkey, I guess TEM Motorway is enough that's because we have real traffic load from Bulgarian side. But my dream is the High Speed Railway between Turkey and Greece. I cant imagine the tourist potential for one day trips between two countries.

and me sorry too

Not very busy, though. How long does it take to cross this border by car?

It's immediately if you are a Mercosul citizen (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay) or Chilean. You must only show ID and car documents. Cargo has some bureaucracy but it doesn't take long either.
