Tehran-Mashhad Railroad Capacity to Reach 25m Passengers

The railroad from Tehran to the eastern city of Mashhad will have the capacity to transport 25 million passengers and 10 million tons of cargo per year as soon as it is electrified, the CEO of Islamic Republic of Iran Railways said.
Saeed Mohammadzadeh made the statement in Tehran on Tuesday after China signed a contract with Iran to finance the electrification of the 926-km route with a $1.5-billion loan.
The loan, which is to be guaranteed by Exim Bank of China, will be provided by Iran’s Bank of Industry and Mine.
The electrification project will be carried out by China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation, also known as CMC.
The project is estimated to take four years to complete.
