1,300 km of Double-Tracked Railroads by August 2017

The length of Iran’s double-tracked railroads will reach 1,300 kilometers by the end of Hassan Rouhani’s presidency, says newly-appointed CEO of the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways, Saeed Mohammadzadeh.
He referred to the rail route connecting Tehran to the city of Karaj in Alborz Province, Tehran’s western neighbor, as a major line that is currently being double-tracked, the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development’s news website reported.
According to Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi, 700 kilometers will be double tracked by the end of the current Iranian year (started March 20) which, if materialized, will register a significant rise compared to the 400 km double-tracked in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16).
Mohammadzadeh recently replaced Mohsen Pourseyyed-Aqaei who resigned in the aftermath of a deadly train crash on November 5 in central Iran. Forty-nine people died and 103 others were injured in what was one of the worst rail accidents in Iran in recet memory.
