North of Turkish Thrace (the area between Istanbul and Edirne) has really wonderful highway and ring roads network as you see at these photos. But South (Silivri-Tekirdağ-Keşan-İpsala) is not like this. But a new project is planned for South of Thrace (as North Marmara Motorway). So the connection with Greece of Istanbul-Salonica road will be complated...

^ Turkish highway infrastructure is excellent! There's 'around' 1,892 km of "red" roads (motorways), right? (according to CIA) But what's the length of "blue" roads (divided roads, expressways)? Looks a lot! They could as well be called motorways, if you ask me.

EDIT: oops, now that I clicked on it, I see!:D So 1,881 km of "red" roads and 8,459 km of "blue" roads on 1.1.2005. 10,340 km of at least 4-lane, divided motorways/expressways!! :O

Turkish, Italian PMs inaugurate major highway tunnel

ANKARA, Jan 23, 2007 (AFP) - Prime Ministers Romano Prodi of Italy and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey on Tuesday inaugurated a 900-million-dollar (691-million-euro) highway tunnel that will reduce travel time between Ankara and Istanbul, Turkey's two biggest cities, by nearly one hour.

The tunnel that crossess the Bolu Mountains in northwestern Turkey is part of the Trans-European Motorway (TEM) and was built by the Italian company over 14 years.

It comprises a 27-kilometer (16.8-mile) motorway, a 2.9-kilometer (1.8-mile) six-lane tunnel, four viaducts and three bridges, which will reduce the average travel time between the capital and Istanbul, Turkey's largest city and industrial hub, from four and a half to three and a half hours.

Inauguration was delayed by several years after the authorities revised the project in 1999, when a powerful earthquake in nearby Izmit damaged the structure and increased safety concerns.

TEM is Turkey's busiest road and a major route between Europe and Asia.

"This tunnel, for which we pierced mountains, connects not only our cities but also brings Turkey closer to Italy and all of Europe," the Anatolia news agency quoted Erdogan as saying at the ceremony.

"It also strengthens our friendly ties with Italy," he said.

Prodi, who held talks with Turkish leaders in Ankara Monday, was scheduled to wrap up his two-day visit later in the day.

He urged Ankara to stick to the path of reform and its goal of European Union membership despite a partial suspension of accession talks, a sanction the bloc imposed in December following Turkey's refusal to grant trade privileges to EU member Cyprus.
