President Hassan Rouhani is to inaugurate Hashtgerd Subway Station in Alborz Province on Tuesday. 
Habibollah Taherkhani, a deputy roads minister, said the line has undergone all the trials, its equipment have been examined and all its shortcomings have been addressed, ISNA reported.
"The station is ready to offer services," he announced.
Hashtgerd Subway Station will be linked with Golshahr Metro Station in Karaj (about 26 kilometers away)—the last station of Tehran Metro’s Line 5. 
The construction of Hashtgerd Station was started in July 2018 by Hashtgerd New Town Construction Company. 
“About 10 trillion rials [$75.7 million] have so far been injected into the project,” Taherkhani said, adding that two more stations along its route are yet to be constructed.
The officials said the new section has the capacity to transport 250,000 passengers per day.
