The quality and advantages of the transportation network in Trabzon

Highways are transport arteries that connect countries to each other, and between cities within a single country, facilitating the movement of trade, tourism, and business.

The highways are characterized by the flatness of the lane and their wideness which ensures the passage of a good number of transport vehicles on the same road.

The highways in Turkey have witnessed a renaissance in their construction and development, and the long tunnels played a prominent role in this field, some of which penetrated the seas, and some of them shortened the distance between the mountains by thousands of meters, all of this was accomplished in the best and most beautiful way to facilitate the movement of roads, transportation, and business in cities Turkey in general, and Trabzon in particular.

The international roads D010 and E097 are the two most important roads in Trabzon; the road D010 connects Trabzon with the coastal cities together, and east to Iran, Georgia and Armenia. While the road E097 reaches the city from north to south through the states of Erzincan and Diyarbakir until it reaches the north of Syria.
