Tehran-Garmsar Railroad Comes on Stream

Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi inaugurated on Thursday a 114-km suburban railroad from Tehran to the city of Garmsar in Semnan Province. He was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency on the sidelines of the inaugural ceremony that the $1.3-million project could help increase investment in Garmsar. The total length of Iran’s suburban rail network is 11,000 kilometers whereas the country needs 25,000 kilometers by 2025 as per the goals of the 20-Year Vision Plan (2005-25), according to the Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran. Worsening traffic and air pollution in Iranian cities have prompted government officials to consider the development of suburban trains as a remedy to these problems.
