İstanbul-İzmir Highway on the Way 21 February 2017
Balıkesir is at the intersection point of great logistics and transportation projects in Turkey, İstanbul-İzmir highway being only one of them. The highway project, which passes through Balıkesir is being built with an increasing pace. Within the scope of the project, Council of Ministers took urgent expropriation decision for several lands in Balıkesir’s Susurluk county.
While İstanbul-İzmir highway construction continues, a bridge which will connect Asia to Europe through Dardanelles is in the planning phase and another highway from Tekirdağ to Balıkesir will strengthen Balıkesir’s position as a logistics hub even more.
