Urban managers in the capital city of Tehran are building bike paths around the city to embrace the growing trend of citizens opting for cycling as a clean, healthy and safe mode of transportation.
Kambiz Mostafapour, the mayor of Tehran’s District 14, said 19 kilometers of cycling paths will soon be ready in the southeastern part of the metropolis, SNN reported.
“Around 11 kilometers of the trail have already been built and the project will come on stream once the final 8 km are completed,” he said.
“Connecting the district’s roads, sidewalks, walkways and parks, the cycling paths conform to road and traffic standards.”
Mostafapour noted that to make an integrated biking network throughout the city, the new routes will be connected to the adjacent districts 12, 13 and 15, through Basij and Mahallati highways as well as Abouzar Boulevard. 
Yaqoub Azadehdel, the head of Clean Transportation Development Office at Tehran Municipality, earlier said the number of bikers has been increasing since the coronavirus outbreak in Iran in February 2020.
