Cinnah Caddesi

The Cinnah Caddesi (Cinnah cd on maps) is a major road located in the city of Ankara, the capital of Turkey. It is one of the most important arteries of traffic and commerce in the city.


The Cinnah Caddesi is a large road that is located in an important commercial and political district of the Turkish capital, Ankara. Planned and constructed as an all-weather, concrete road with multiple lanes, its course is surrounded by high-rise buildings, residential complexes and public places such as parks and other large roads. Many smaller roads and lanes connect traffic with it. Offices of many important banks, corporations, commercial shops and other private institutions are located in buildings on either side of the road. Also based along the road are government offices and embassies of foreign nations, including India and Canada. There are several residential buildings along its route, which are high-priced owing to their location in the heart of the city.

The street carries the name of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the Founding-Father of Pakistan. He can also be considered as one of the pioneers of the longstanding friendship between Turkey and Pakistan.


The road has suffered from chronic traffic congestion and inclement weather, as well as damage from earthquakes. As of July 28, 2006 Cinnah Caddesi was transformed into a one-way road with an aim of reducing congestion. This change has caused major alterations in traffic patterns and transportation across Ankara. As of September 2006, the base of Cinnah Caddesi was involved in a major construction project, cutting it off from most of the rest of Ankara.
