32% Progress in Tehran-North Freeway Project

The construction of the $2.17 billion freeway connecting Tehran to Chalous in the northern Mazandaran Province has made 32% progress, says deputy minister of roads and urban development, Saeed Mohammadzadeh.
“The progress stood at 18% at the beginning of the last Iranian year (started March 21, 2015,)” the official was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
Initial plans to build the so-called “Tehran-North Freeway”, which consists of four sections spanning 121 kilometers, were proposed 20 years ago.
The government of President Hassan Rouhani has expedited the construction of the first section to complete it by March 2017 deadline.
According to Mohammadzadeh, Section 1 has made 71.8% progress. The 32-kilometer stretch will cut the current path short by 60 kilometers. Seven contractors, including a Chinese company, are working on this section.
A tender is underway to select contractors for the second section to start work by early November. The second and third sections pass through inhospitable mountainous terrain.
