The development of public transportation has been high on Tehran urban managers’ agenda, for which the capital launched the construction of the subway’s Line 10 last week.
According to Tehran Metro's CEO Ali Emam, the line is the largest urban development project in the past several years, ISNA reported.
Line 10 will be 43 kilometers long and link up with lines 4, 3, 1, 7, 6, 9 and 5 from east to west of the city. Line 9 is in the design phase and the partly operational lines 6 and 7 are still under construction.
Line 10 is designed to cross Tehran’s districts one to five and 22 that are located in the northernmost part of the city. 
With 35 stations, the line is to start from Qanat Kosar in the east and link to Vardavard Station on Line 5 that connects Sadeqiyeh in western to Karaj, the provincial center of Alborz.
Emam said the line is designed to cover areas with poor transportation systems like Tehran’s District 22.
