This appears to be a 17 kilometer section between Demirciler / Dilovasi and Sevindikli, which is east of Istanbul. Open Street Map also indicates this section is open to traffic.
The O6 may all be open from east of Izmit to west of Istanbul this year, certainly by this time next year. Not much is visible of the last section of O6 east of Izmit (around Adapazari ) yet. Maybe a 2021 or even a 2022 opening there.

New Google Earth imagery from June/July 2019 also shows the construction of the Çanakkale Bridge.

Unfortunately the new imagery is only on land so you can't see any pylons being constructed in the water.

General view


European side. Looks like they are constructing a gigantic anchoring block


Asian side, also a huge anchoring block

Construction, Operation and Transfer of Menemen-Aliağa-Çandarlı Motorway Project


Is Imgur still banned in Turkey???

While that project is a northbound extension of the O-30 starting south of Menemen and north of Izmir Airport, it is marked as O-33 on OSM. Is that correct? Looks like a good 80km of O Road in total, when built.

EDIT, Chris confirmed O-33 as correct as I wrote. :)

O30 is only Izmir ring road and is free of charge. Startind fron this, there are paytoll like O31 to Aydin, O5 to Istanbul and O32 to Cesme.
So, the next number is O33..
:)

Next openning that I expect is european part of O6, from Silivri to Catalca...

Are there any other roads U/C in Turkey except for Ankara-Nigde and the one spanning the Canakalle bridge (i don't remember which road this is)?? The Ankara-Izmir for example???

There were plans for a motorway from Aydin to Denizli, but those appear to have been scrapped.

There is also some more infrastructure around the Northern Marmara Motorway east and west of Istanbul under construction.

There are a lot of plans but Turkey is a very large country with lots of wicked terrain to overcome.

This map below is fairly recent and from the wiki. Orange ones are well under construction or already open bar the still early work around the Canakkale bridge.

I have no idea whether any of the purple ones are under construction now. Grey shows the 'next' lot of plans, no idea when they are to be delivered though and I would think the grey ones around the Canakkale are a priority somehow.

Yes, take a look here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=10/41.0561/29.0533

O6 and O7, including the third bridge Yavuz Sultan Selim (YSS)

Meanwhile, O33 is open. From Candarli to Menemen.
There is a section around Menemen, which is still closed for a few days.

Toll for this highway is 20,30 YTL.
