Tehran-North Freeway Makes Progress

Construction of the first section of the so-called Tehran-North Freeway that connects the capital city of Tehran to the northern Mazandaran Province has made 60% progress, the CEO of Tehran-North Freeway Company said.
“The completion of the remainder of the project (Section 1) requires 10 trillion rials ($290 million at market exchange rate),” Mehran Etemadi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
According to Etemadi, seven contractors are currently working at 120 construction sites along the section so that this leg of the project will be finished by the March 2017 deadline.
The freeway includes four sections will span 121 kilometers upon completion. The 32-kilometer Section 1, from west of Tehran to Shahrestanak Village, will cut the current path short by 60 kilometers.
Section 4 of the freeway, which is 20 kilometers long and connects Marzanabad in Kelardasht District to Chalous (both in Mazandaran), was inaugurated in March 2014, but was later closed to the public due to technical problems.
The government is currently in talks to find contractors for the second and third sections, which pass through rugged and mountainous terrain and are not easily accessible.
