The north South road is Bazargan - Urmia - Mahabad - Sanandaj - Kermanshah - Ilam - Mehran - Andimeshk - Ahvaz - Sarbandar
Or could be through Tabriz
And could go through Lorestan instead of Ilam
I've been reading around, it's pretty vague by now, what the corridor constitutes.
It's more of an axis of development than a set plan for road development

This one could also go in 'long distance road signs' and 'signs for foreign countries' threads. Especially the destination 'Europe' is interesting, as I've never seen a sign pointing to a continent.
And Latin translitteration uses Azarbayjan instead of the more common Azerbaijan.

Sure, I'll post them there, guess they decided to stick with the Iranian way of saying it instead of going for the standard way of writing it.
There's a lot of signs pointing to Iraqi cities on the western boundaries

Mehran border 11, Kazamayn 241, Samara 331 (ISIS put this city under seige for a couple of months back in 2014), Karbala 300, Najaf 345

I find it interesting how text is written right to left, but numbers are written left to right.

same as Hebrew, the issue with this is, sometimes you're writing with pen and you have a big number to write, you overestimate the space the number's gonna take, and are left over with random extra space in the middle of the sentence, or you underestimate the space, and the numbers just get crammed into each other and into the previous word.

I've been looking at new satellite imagery of the Tehran Shomal (North) Freeway. Progress seems extremely slow over the past 3 years, with only minor changes, the most significant change is this bridge, although it's difficult to judge how much work they did in the tunnels.

The terrain is extremely challenging on this route, there's not much to compare it with in Europe or North America. I-70 through the Rocky Mountains is a walk in the park compared to this project near Tehran.

The benefits would be huge though. The current road is narrow, slow and crowded. Google Maps indicate a driving time of 3.5 hours from Tehran to Chalus (100 km as the crow flies). This freeway could dramatically improve that to about an hour. Produce from the Caspian region can also be shipped to Tehran much easier.

around 50% of the 32 km long section is tunnels.
less than 500 m of the 16 km tunnelling is left to be done, from what I could gather

Yes it is, however look at how fast Tehran Southern Bypass has been progressing. Also in the past year (or two) the number of construction vehicles has been increased to more than 700 from the previously 150ish. If weather permits, building the non-tunnel and non-bridge sections of the freeway can be done in a decent time, considering a lot of the mountain drilling have been done too.
I wouldnt bet on it, as the chances of a delay to the end of the summer is also likely, especially with the extreme coldness and snowfall that we've been having so far, if it remains like this for most of the winter.

Esfahan - Shiraz Freeway Section 7 construction started today
Length of section: 13 km
Estimated Cost: 80 Billion IRR
Expected opening of this section along with the 6 others: August 2018


Orange indicates the section




Video with more information

Issue with this is that now a lot of traffic would be converging at the road entering the city from the Northwest.

Rouhani opened some infrastructure in the southeast today:

During the ceremony, Dr Rouhani opened the second runway of Zahedan Airport, Chehel Koureh copper factory and mine, the first phase of Zahedan-Zabol motorway, the seventh phase of Zabol-Zahedan motorway, the first phase of Zahedan-Bam motorway, Taftan Airway, and telecommunications projects, as well as 3G and 4G lines in the province.

These seem to be expansions of Highway 84 and Highway 99.

Thanks Chris for sharing.
Thanks to you, upon searching a bit, found the following information
The opened runway is 35R/17L from what it looks like, and an equal or longer length

The road projects going out of Zahedan were an addition of a 2 lane road parallel to the existing the two lane road, making it a 2+2 expressway, with lots of median u-turns and local access roads, typical iranian geometric design
The opened sections.
The road project going out of Zabol, besides the above, also involved construction of brand new 2+2 expressway bypasses on the Western Side of Mohammadabad (plus a grade-separated interchage), and on the Eastern side of Lutak

Baghestan city, Shahriar country, just southwest of Tehran proper, urban plan calling for ring roads. This will either contain urban growth to within its limit or provide means of sprawl along them on the outer side of them.

Segment 1 of Sirjan Bandarabbas Freeway project passed government cabinet meeting. The segment will have a budget of 200 billion Toman (62 million USD, 58 million Euro), divided between government providing 30% and the rest from private investment. The project involves doubling of Sirjan Eastern Bypass, and constructing two interchanges in the begining and the end of the segment.

900 Km of Freeways Under Construction in Iran

There are 900 kilometers of freeways under construction in Iran, the deputy head of Construction and Development of Transportation Infrastructures Company, affiliated to the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, said.

Tabriz-Marand-Bazargan Freeway
The project, launched early April, includes four sections, spanning 253 kilometers from Tabriz, the capital of the northwestern East Azarbaijan Province, to the city of Bazargan on Iran-Turkey border.

Mirshafi said the section is being constructed by domestic private companies and will be completed in the next Iranian year (March 2018-19).

Isfahan-Shiraz Freeway
The 225-kilometer freeway project, comprised of six sections, will connect the central provincial capital of Isfahan to the southern city of Shiraz in Fars Province, according to its contractor, Isfahan-Shiraz Freeway Company.

The first section, with a length of 54 kilometers, will be completed by September 2018, the official said.

Tehran-North Freeway
The freeway connecting the capital Tehran to Chalous in Mazandaran Province is an ambitious project prioritized by the government in recent years.

The 32-km Phase 1, which is almost 85% complete, will shorten the existing route from Tehran to the Caspian city by 60 kilometers.

This part includes a 6,400-meter tunnel, the excavation work of which has been completed recently. Section 1 is scheduled to be completed before the calendar year is out in March 2018.

Plan for Further 500 Kilometers
According to Mirshafi, talks are in final stages to sign contracts to start the construction of 500 km of freeways across the country.

Among the new projects in the making, he referred to a freeway from Mashhad to Qouchan, which is being negotiated with Iran’s Astan Quds Razavi—a charitable conglomerate based in Mashhad and engaged in a wide range of economic activities—as well as a 1,000-km freeway from the city of Qom to Mashhad, which is to be carried out by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps' Khatam Al-Anbia Construction Headquarters.

The Parsian-Lamerd project, freeways in Sirjan and Arak counties and part of a freeway from Bandar Abbas to Tehran are also among projects yet to be finalized.
Condensed from the original report: https://financialtribune.com/article...uction-in-iran

So there really is a construction boom of freeways ongoing in Iran. The Tehran North Freeway is a particularly challenging project, comparable to the most challenging motorway projects built in the Alps and Italy.

The first phase of the Tehran North Freeway is now to be completed before Nowruz next year (March 2018). The entire project should be completed by March 2023.
