Isfahan-Shiraz Freeway to Open by March 2019

The government says it will complete the construction of a 222-km freeway connecting the cities of Isfahan and Shiraz by the end of the next Iranian year (March 2019).

“The 20-trillion-rial ($534 million) project is being jointly funded by the government and the private sector,” Seyyed Hossein Mirshafi, deputy head of Construction and Development of Transportation Infrastructures Company, affiliated to the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, said.

He has also been quoted by the ministry’s news portal as saying that the project has made 47% progress. The total length of Iranian freeways currently stands at about 2,500 km.

The figure is stipulated to reach 7,000 km by the end of the sixth five-year development plan (March 2022).

The government has invested 30 trillion rials ($800 million) in the past two Iranian years (March 2015-17) for the construction of freeways.

Some 2,000 kilometers of freeways in the form of 10 projects are currently under construction in Iran.
