To curb the growing annoyance of dilapidated motorcycles in the capital city of Tehran, several state institutions have signed a multilateral agreement to resume the scrappage of old two-wheelers.
Mohammad Mehdi Mirzaei, a senior official at the Department of Environment, told ISNA that late last week, the department signed a deal with Iran Road Maintenance and Transportation Organization, Iran Chamber of Commerce and Association for Scrappage and Recycling Centers over phasing out 140,000 rundown motorcycles.
Pointing to the fact that there is a law regarding this undertaking, Mirzaei said its implementation was halted due to lack of coordination among the institutions involved. 
"The deal considers the law’s implementation on a small scale to make it easier for the executive agencies to execute the plan. In case everything goes forward as expected, the agreement will be extended in a phased manner,” he added.
