more than 10 000 vpd on a 2-lane is hell

maybe the proposed road has high seasonal peaks (like summer vacation traffic) to need the extra space?

Well there are major peaks resulting in jams lasting for hours in major highways ending in Tehran in long holidays and near the end of Iranian New Years holiday. But this road seems to mostly be serving as a minor commute route and a major freight route in my opinion. The thing about land acquisition and topographic situation that far south of Tehran (a bit south of Tehran's IKIA) is that it's mostly uninhabited, barren and flat. So the cost difference of adding the extra lane is negligible. Also, the Qom-Kashan-Natanz-Morcheh Khort Freeway (7) is 6 lanes with very little traffic, so it's not the first of its own kind of the overkill design in that area.

Recently there were also plans announced about construction of a dry port in Charmshahr area where the Bypass FW will intersect with Qom-Garmsar FW, that, plus "passive defense" considerations may be behind the width of the freeway.

Also known as the Tehran Shomal (North) Freeway. A very difficult freeway project, probably the most difficult in Asia outside of China / Japan due to the steep mountains. Progress seems to be very slow though.

That is true. Sections 2 and 3 have had almost no progress aside from an expeditionary 4 km tunnel (needed for geological purposes before they start boring the main tunnels)

That's very cheap compared with the motorway tolls in China...normally it costs 0.5 RMB (0.073 EURO at today's currency)/km. In mountainous areas it could be as high as 1.2RMB/km, that's 0.175 EUROs

When I drove in Iran I was amazed by the cheap tolls, we paid 1800 Toman for the whole trip from Tehran to Shiraz ...

you paid 1800 tomans for the whole trip of 890 km. compare that to 10,000 tomans for a trip of 150 km. and it's a desert highway too, not too difficult or expensive to construct

does that kind of toll rate even pay for the wages of the person collecting tolls?
I want to say 1800 tomans is like 60 cents US...
I wonder what Persians who drive on Hwy 407 think when the bill comes

lol 407 is like a last resort, for like when you're late for your flight or a business meeting in mississauga or something. like 407 is even too expensive in canadian standards
bear in mind that the cheap toll rate is for Tehran-Qom. Tehran-Qom is government owned, as in the toll isn't being paid to private sector, and it has the second highest AADT among iranian freeways, after Tehran-Karaj. Tehran Qom has an AADT of 50000, which means with 300 toman tolls, 15 million tomans a day. Let's say there's 3 shifts, and each shift has 6 toll collectors, and they each earn about 2 million toman a month, that would only be a loss of 1.2 million a day out of 15 million. not too bad

Tehran Southern Bypass Freeway making good progress since official start of construction 4~5 months ago

(The scratch on the ground in the general NW-SE direction)

Also, Tehran Shomal Freeway Section 1 has seen a major unprecedented rehabilitation of the super slow 20 year long construction progress also in the past 4~5 months.
