  (Redirected from Otoyol 6)

The Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Balıkesir Motorway (Turkish: Kınalı-Tekirdağ-Çanakkale-Balıkesir Otoyolu) is a planned 321-kilometre-long (199 mi) motorway, with an 82 km (51 mi) section between Malkara and Çanakkale under construction. When complete, the route will cross the Dardanelles via the Çanakkale 1915 Bridge, connecting western Anatolia with East Thrace. The route will be the first motorway in Turkey outside of Istanbul to connect the European and the Asian parts of the country.
