Thank you very much for this pic.
Is this way of signage standard in Azerbaijan or an exception?
On photos from Baku I only saw multilingual Azerbaijani signage.
To this kind of "bilingualism" I can only say: WHY???
You will find this never in any other Latin writing country.

What a waste of valuable land... Why on Earth would someone plan an 8 laned motorway in the middle of the city fundamentally cutting it off from the coast line...

"Read my lips", in 5-10 years time the whole road will be put underground like in case of The Bund in Shanghai...

It's not exactly "in the middle of the city", but rather in the south. This all used to be industrial wasteland with ugly shipyards.
