We have materialized mega projects within the aim of developing our country’s transport infrastructure since 2003 as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
We have equipped all corners of Turkey with mega projects. We are creating not only inter urban but also inter regional highway rings through the largest highway projects of the world. We are launching Marmara Highway Ring through realizing the İstanbul-İzmir Highway, Northern Marmara Highway and Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Savaştepe Highway projects, which are among the important projects of the world. We will be launching İstanbul-İzmir Highway in its entirety next summer.
The Marmara Region, integrated with Edirne-Kınalı-İstanbul-Ankara Highway and İzmir-Aydın Highway along with the completion of Gebze-Orhangazi-İzmir Highway, and the Aegean Region will be connected to each other via a highway network. We will be completing the highway ring of the Marmara Region along with the Northern Marmara Highway, construction of which has begun, and Malkara-Çanakkale (including the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge) Highway Section. Malkara-Çanakkale Highway and the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge, which will be put into service in March 2022, will be providing the integration of highway projects with ports and railway and air transport systems of the economically-most-developed regions of Turkey, the Marmara and Aegean Regions, where a significant portion of Turkey’s population resides.
This is a race to serve and it will be a means of unity, solidarity, and friendship for our country and nation.
