The signage is very similar to the Irish road signage especially on the motorways and expressways. Any map of the Cyprus road network?

Why advisory? This is advisory speed.

Epic fail in Cyprus:

Yeah, narrow the motorway down to one lane, put the other in use for carpoolers, and traffic will decrease? What kind of ALDI traffic engineers work there?

Do they drive on the left in northern Cyprus as well? That would make sense, but given the immense mainland influence...

Well, I like thread necrophilia and if this thread is about the whole island, here I share; The Beltway of Kyrenia (Girne Çevreyolu) is completed and opened last year as tihis cite: http://www.kgm.gov.tr/Sayfalar/KGM/S...x?Parameter=42

Bonus pics from Lefkoşa(Turkish Nicosia)-Girne Anayol (it's Karayolu as Türkiye's standard, not Otoyol.)


http://www.panoramio.com/photo/27785346

(These 2 pics are taken from old road currently a collector of the Anayol.)

Interestingly they are using American spellings rather than British spellings (in Northern Cyprus)

It would be interesting to see any pictures of the road signs from the British areas and Northern Cyprus too if anyone has them!
They use Cypriot standards on their road signs.

[CYP] Roads of Cyprus

Another country that does not appear on here, and that is Cyprus. Are there any Cypriot road pics, either of the Greek or Turkish side(s)

The news is a bit unclear. Is this a new motorway or a widening of A1?

The "TRNC" apparently issues its own license plates; how are these recognized when driving abroad (outside Turkey)? Are they simply being considered as Cyprus plates (like if they were from the recognized Republic), or is it not possible to use them abroad?

Plates from other unrecognised states can be used abroad are recognised, so I'd guess that TRNC are too, probably as you say just considered to be Cypriot

Commencement on the A9 highway to Troödos is expected in early 2012.
Per wikipedia. Did construction begin? Or will it begin soon? Maybe it's postponed?
