Track-Laying for Mianeh-Tabriz Railroad Begins

Track-laying for a railroad linking the city of Mianeh in the northwestern East Azarbaijan Province to its capital city Tabriz started on Friday in the presence of Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi. In the first phase, rail tracks for 158 kilometers of the route, from Mianeh to Bostanabad will be laid. The minister was quoted as saying by IRNA that the Mianeh-Tabriz route will reduce the current 714 km Tehran-Tabriz journey to 600 kilometers. “[The new route] will play an important role in the expansion of rail transit in the region,” Akhoundi said, hoping that the first section will become operational by late August.
