A total of 89 rail projects worth 2.77 trillion rials ($10.73 million) were recently inaugurated across the country, during a ceremony attended by Minister of Rroads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami and CEO of the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways Saeed Rasouli.
“These projects were related to infrastructural expansion, railroad renovations, technical development, increasing energy consumption efficiency and passenger service, ticket sale mechanization, facilitating the commuting of the handicapped in rail stations and on trains, reducing air pollution and safety enhancement,” the IRIR chief was quoted as saying by Fars News Agency on Monday.
Eslami said last year Iran has succeeded in manufacturing domestic rails and during the Iranian month ending Dec. 20, the country became self-sufficient in producing cargo wagons, needle rail and train wheels.
