$125m for Chabahar-Zahedan Railroad

The government will allocate 5 trillion rials ($125 million at market exchange rate) for an under-construction railroad connecting Chabahar Port to the city of Zahedan, both in Sistan-Baluchestan, the southeastern province’s Governor General Ali Osat Hashemi announced.
Hashemi was quoted by IRNA as saying that President Hassan Rouhani has issued an order to Planning and Budget Organization to allocate the budget to the project.
Iran signed an agreement with India earlier this year for the railroad’s construction. India’s state-owned IRCON has agreed to establish the 500-km rail line from Chabahar to Zahedan at a cost of $1.6 billion as part of the transit corridor to Afghanistan.
