The road exists but it's in very poor shape and it goes through Armenian territory from Iran to Georgia.

Axar.az reports that Dr Theodore Karasik, an American expert and senior adviser at the US Gulf State Analytical Center stated this while commenting on Iran's position on the construction of an alternative "Caucasian corridor" to Zangazur.

According to the expert, there has been some fighting ongoing in the past months at all very low-intensity levels over the opening and blocking this road particularly when it comes to Iranian transport:

"With the changing calculus and the caucuses and the war of words between Azerbaijan and Iran, Tehran sees an opportunity to do some geostrategic moves too. Last week it was the military exercises and this week it is the reopening of this transitway with major reconstruction. The move is meant to put pressure on Baku so that Armenia and Iran are playing nice which they historically do."

Political analyst mentions that the terminus if you will for this road is going to be determined via the Georgian ports of potentially Batumi or Poti:

"We're going to have to see how that works out because there are many other factors including issues such as black sea security. So in theory it's possible but there are all kinds of new issues that arise. Just another day in the caucuses!"
