No train will be allowed to run at speeds below 130 kilometers per hour on Tehran-Mashhad route in the new Iranian year (started March 20), said the managing director of Islamic Republic of Iran Railways.

“Within three years, people will be able to travel from Tehran to Mashhad in six hours,” Mohsen Pourseyyed Aqaei added.

“The ministry has set an agenda for Tehran-Qom-Isfahan high speed rail project to ferry passengers between Tehran and Isfahan in about two hours. This project would also take three years to complete,” Mehr News Agency quoted Aqaei as saying on Monday.
