There's no big difference; Iran is quite off the route between China and western Europe. But it wouldn't harm, if both routes were established.

Well, because Silk Route days are over. Europe's economic centre of gravity is no longer around the Mediterranean, but much further to the North. I picked the E50 for a reason, as it crosses the economic powerhouses of Southern Germany and Northern France.

But obviously, you don't build a road for Europe to China traffic alone. Most of it will continue to run by sea and maybe even by rail. In other words, connections need to work at the regional level and then also help as transcontinental routes. I do appreciate that my thought around the extended E50 does not serve a lot of places east of Volgograd. It does, however, run relatively close to towns North (e.g. Astana). These could be served by branches, without prejudicing the direct route east-west.

But, then, the route would not be used to transport goods from China to Europe in a significant amount. Because seriously, it is more than 5000 km and transportation companies would still prefer sea transport and rail transport. So the road is built for some other reason, which I think it is creating corridors of transportation in Central Asia so that they can have an economic boost around the corridor. So both Northern and Southern corridor would help a lot.

As I mentioned, Central Asian trade is very well served with a route from Ürümqi to Tashkent and beyond via Almaty. That is not a connection that you would expect to be competing with transport by sea. A further area where transport by road is just more likely to occur than in the really long distance is between the east of the Ukraine and the Volgograd area (which is rather industrial) and China. This is why a routed my "Europe - China corridor" as an extension to the E50 which runs through that area. But let's fact it, on this connection it will take a long time before the numbers will justify any larger-scale construction.

M32 Temirlan Bypass

Temirlan is a town not far northwest of Shymkent, where a new bypass is under construction. The expected 2037 AADT is 21.844 vehicles per day.

The project includes the construction of a 15 km new four-lane asphalt or concrete paved bypass road from km 2216 to 2231 of the M-32 highway (Samara-Russian Federation border- Shymkent). The project will be prepared and contracted to meet internationally accepted (FIDIC; SNiP) design and construction norms and rules within a newly developed embankment.

Kyrgyzstan Bypass

According to this press release, a new 36 kilometer bypass of Kyrgyzstan should open to traffic today. It is part of the Western Europe - Western China corridor through southern Kazakhstan. There are no photos or imagery in Google Earth, so I cannot confirm whether this is a motorway, but other parts of this route in this area appear to be motorway standard.

I also don't know the exact alignment or location of this new road, all I know it is 36 kilometers long and includes a bridge across the Chu River, and it bypass Kyrgyz territory, which should result in an alignment something like this:

A1 Astana - Shchuchinsk toll road

The A1 Astana - Shchuchinsk motorway opened to traffic in 2009, over a distance of 224 kilometers. It was the first long-distance motorway of Kazakhstan.

Starting 2013, it will be the first toll road in Kazakhstan as well.

It's not just the bypass of Qizil-Orda (Kyzylorda) because it seems to continue 2 Km more to the west of where it meets the old road.

How many km of motorway are in Kazakhstan?
In 2009 they had only 224 km. Today is the same?

Now there are several highways under construction. One of the largest multibillion projects is a new Silk Way - a world class highway from western China to Europe with over 2000 km over Kazakhstani territory. The project will be completed in 2015. Besides, a couple of years ago a new concrete autobahn was built from the capital Astana to Burabay resort (about 300 km long). The road between former capital Almaty and Astana is also in rather good condition, it was upgraded several years ago but the plans are to upgrade it to the world standards in the near future. Also some roads in the oil rich region have been upgraded (or newly built) in recent years - from Atyrau to Uralsk, from Atyrau towards Aktau (partially). There are several other road projects that have been implement in recent years or are being implemented. Kazakhstan is huge and sparcely populated. Large cities are located very far away from each other and it costs huge amounts to build such long roads. It is not Europe, my friends. Anyway, progress is obvious for the newly independent country.
