From Qazvin to Rasht

Qazvin-Rasht by vatse, on Flickr

Last year I posted pictures from road 49 between Rasht and Qazvin. As the new motorway 1 is now almost completely opened I post some more pictures from same roads but this time it's mostly from new motorway.

Road 49 west from Qazvin

Junction with motorway 2 between Tehran and Tabriz

Great pictures. Iran is a country most of us can't get a good image from.

I've read somewhere Tehran is the "Los Angeles of the Middle East". (not sure if Iran is still considered to be a part of the Middle East).

Motorway 1
Oldest parts of this motorway were probably opened some years ago. These were between motorway 2 and road 49 near Qazvin and small stretch north of Rostam Abad. Rest of the motorway was opened probably during the first part of year 2010. Currently the motorway is missing only the part between Manjil and Roodbar. As it's the most difficult part of the road to build it could take some more years to finish this part.
As the motorway and road 49 are not crossing the Alborz mountains but rather going through the mountains using natural gorges it's going all the way down hill between Qazvin and Caspian Sea.

On the right there is a construction site for new railway between Qazvin and Rasht and on to Azerbaidjan. The future railway would run parallel to motorway most of the way through Alborz.

Thanks for these pictures, vatse--very interesting.

Is there a place on the Web where design guidance for Iranian traffic signs can be downloaded?

The road continues as a divided highway until Rasht. I'm not sure about numbering. From Google Maps you can find that it's still road 49 but from many signs you can find road 35.

Sadly Iran has quite a bad image as we all know. And at the same time the real life in Iran is so different from this image so you just have to go and see it by yourself. And for most of Europeans it's actually quite easy to get the visa and travel to Iran.

I don't know what is meant by this "Los Angeles of the Middle East" but I have heard that LA is called Tehran of USA because there is considerable and very active Iranian community
