There are 1871 km of motorways in Azerbaijan (M1-M2-M3-M4-M5-M6-M7-M8).

If you mean 1st class highways, there are 175 km now.

Thanks for your answer!
These are all the main roads of Azerbaijan, but I think not all of them are motorways. I think that the only motorways are M1 (205 km), M2 (507 km - but some parts are motorways) and M3 (243 km - but some parts are motorways). The others M roads are expressways or dual carriageways.
Am I right?

Yes, actually you are right. For example, M1 highway (Baku-Guba-Russian Federation) has a speed limit of 110 km/h in most parts, so this is a motorway. Speed limits in other highways also change. I have no information from other M roads. All I know is that, currently most of them are under renovation. For example, there were 2 lanes in road M4, but know the widening works are going. After renovation works the speed limits in these roads will also be changed according to number of lanes. I mean currently it is hard to classify them because most of them are under construction and renovation.

There are also some motorways (6-8 lanes) in Absheron peninsula such as Baku Ring Road, Baku-Airport I, Baku-Aiport II, Baku-Sumgayit, Baku-Bilgah etc.

finally found it... The first picture of a sign showing R-class road numbers...

Some points:
1- Picture was taken in Bilasuvar (Bilesavar) near M3
2- Eventhough M3 is part of E119 and AH8, none of these numbers are shown
3- İran İR stands for İran İslami Republikası (alternatively Cumhuriətı is also used instead of Republikasi especially in Iran)
4- The main alternative road to Nakhjivan is not R-43 in Azerbaijan and then Route 12 in Iran since the border of Armenia is closed after the war

Airport Freeway at Baku

Dairə means a neighbourhood or something simillar BTW


Qəs. Stands for Qəsəbə (Qasabeh) meaning a suburban town

Havalimani as you may have noticed from previous pictures means Airport and Mərkəz (Markaz) means Center

This double line separating lanes 2 and 3 is really weird. And sometimes one of the two lines is broken. Witch is the meaning?

Why is it weird? It is for separating the traffic with higher and lower speed. Maximum allowed speed in 2 left lanes is 120 km/h and in 2 right lanes is 100km/h and 80 km/h. The broken lines are for changing the lane. For example, if you want to turn right to some village or town, you have to change your lane by using those broken lines.

Probably because nearly no other country uses it to separate traffic flows in the same direction. I've only seen it in Azerbaijan.

Well, I've never seen it before.

In the video you can see vehicles crossing the double line and others using broken lines to overtaking to the right.

Yes akward. But keep in mind that normal lines are in yellow and only the double line (which turns out that people pass on it) is in white

The irony is that even when they are crossing the white double line, they still use their flashers...
