Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan plans to open the highway between Izmir and Istanbul on August 4.

This road, which Turkey has been waiting for, is one of the most important projects implemented by Turkey in the development of its roads and its network links. It will reduce the trip between Istanbul and Izmir from 8.5 to 3.5 hours.

Furthermore, the road is part of a large project of more than 400 km and links the cities of Istanbul and Bursa and Izmir. However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will inaugurate the most important part of it, with a length of 192 kilometers, to enter the service before Eid al-Adha.

"This huge project, which reaches the Marmara Sea region, in the Aegean, Mediterranean and western Anatolia regions, has been under construction since 2010, and the largest part of it - the Osman Ghazi Bridge - entered service in 2016, and 87 km of distance between Istanbul and Izmir was reduced.” said Turkish Transport and Infrastructure Minister Jahid Tauran. 


"Last year, a major section of the road was opened with a length of 201 km and a 33 km link from this project. The section, which is being laid for service on August 4, is a 183 km long main road and a 9 km link," the minister added.
