Plans for development and expansion of subway networks in Iranian cities of Ahvaz and Shiraz are gaining momentum.
The municipality of Ahvaz, the provincial center of Khuzestan, has forged an agreement with Khatam-al Anbiya Construction Company to resume the city’s abandoned subway project. 
The company is an Iranian engineering arm of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, IRNA reported.
During a signing event on Sunday, the company’s Managing Director Saeed Mohammad said the incomplete metro project in the city has disrupted urban development. 
“We will utilize our technical knowhow and expertise in the construction of Ahvaz Metro to compensate for the long delay in the project,” he said.
The subway of Ahvaz was first mapped over a decade ago. When completed, the system will have four lines and stretch over 88 kilometers across the city with 87 stations.
Line 1 of Ahvaz Metro’s construction, launched in 2009, was expected to become partly operational in 2018. However, the project is still pending.
