The government’s five prioritized rail projects, namely Khash-Zahedan, Bostanabad-Tabriz, Mianeh-Ardabil, Hamedan-Sanandaj and Rasht-Caspian, have made an average progress of 75% and all are expected to come on stream within a year, according to a deputy minister of roads and urban development. 
“With the track-laying of Khash-Zahedan coming to an end, this project has been completed and is ready to be launched. The route is a segment of Chabahar-Zahedan railroad and with its inauguration, this mega project moved one step closer to its launch,” Kheirollah Khademi was also quoted as saying by the news portal of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development.
The official added that the 44-kilometer-long Bostanabad-Tabriz railroad, which is a short cut between the provincial capital of East Azarbaijan Province and Tehran, has so far made 95% progress and will be ready for inauguration within the next few months.
