Isn't the name technically pronounced as Bābak? (بابک) The place was named after the famous Baba Khorramdin, right?

No problem Yes, actually it is pronounced like that, but I didn't know how to write it in English That is right, it was named after Babak Khorramdin

Thank you!

@Azer Akhundov: Then it should be the easiest to write it "Babək" than to think about how it could be written in English.

As it is international forum, I thought that it will be difficult for people to read original names. From now on I will write original names with their English pronunciation.

@Azer Akhundov:
Original form is the easiest to find on maps etc.
And it is common to use original forms of local names in all Latin writing countries.
I think Azerbaijan is the only country that transcripts even names of his own people from Latin into Latin. :-)
That must be a relict from Cyrillic times and Russian influence cause Russians transcript and translate nearly everything, even Mc Donald's. :-) I have not any other explanation for this phenomenon.
But thats off topic here.
Seems to me that there are many investments in Azerbaijani road network, even in rural areas.
Is the standard of roads in Azerbaijan already comparable to Turkish roads?

Yes, that is right, there are many investments in road network today. Most of the current roads are renovated, main roads are widened and also new roads are constructed.

I wouldn't say that standards are already comparable to Turkish roads, but I think the quality is increasing each year. Sometimes problems occur in existing roads but in general most of the newly built main roads meet the quality standards. By the way, there are many Turkish construction companies taking part in road development projects in Azerbaijan.

Some part of M-1 highway (from Baku to Şabran) and part of M-2 highway (from Baku to Ələt) are motorways. In Baku, there is also Zığ (Zigh)-Airport motorway. Currently, a new 8-laned motorway is under construction from Baku to Sumqayıt (Baku-Bilgəh-Novxanı-Sumqayıt) going through Abşeron region. The part from Baku to Bilgəh is already completed.
