ASPHALT & ROAD INDUSTRY IN TURKEY Being carried by road over 90 per cent of freight transport especially in our country increases heavy vehicle traffic on the highway and this affects negatively traffic safety. As of the beginning of 2010, excluding rural roads, 3576 km part of state and provincial roads, a total length of 62 219 km, is the nature of gravel, soil and impassable road. At the beginning of the year 2009, length of the highway was 1922 km, and it reached 2036 km. at the beginning of the year 2010. Approximately 92 percent of domestic freight transportation is accordance with heavy vehicles traffic on highways where it carried out, and Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) coating, the length of the state and provincial roads is 8681 km. Under target of the road construction divided by 15,000 km , as of September in the year 2010, about 1364 miles of divided highway was completed and multi-lane road network including the highways reached 18 874 km. In 2010, about 500 km of HMA overlay construction on divided highways is expected to perform. It is targeted the divided road construction in 2.100 km, and the construction of HMA in 2.000 km in 2011. Continued as follows; the harmonization of EU driver's documents for driving licenses, the installation of speed-limiting technical means for specific devices, the organization of work and rest periods of drivers, the creation of a data base compatible with EU standards related to traffic accidents and the necessary legal arrangement works in order to ensure equivalence between the driver training in EU Member States with the trainings ensuring to drivers in our country.
