The Republic of Turkey is pleased to announce its road building programme for May 2013.
Turkey has many good roads linking every major city and even small villages. We don't have many cars and lorries using them though. They are mainly empty. Which is a pity considering how much we have invested in them.
The Ministry has therefore studied the economics of road traffic and, applying Say's Law, has decided that increasing the supply of roads will lead to increased demand.
The Ministry will therefore turn every road in Turkey from a single carriageway into a four lane dual carriageway in one month. This will require new bridges, tunnels and the removal of entire mountainsides.
While this going on, drivers will experience majestic sweeping bends through the mountains punctuated by short sections of loose rock. Since there is no traffic, motorcyclists should feel rfee to ride on both sides of the road.
The massive cost of this work means that potholes on major roads will not be filled unless they are more than 20cm deep.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
