Tehran Metro’s extension to Eslamshahr, a working district in the southwest, requires 13 trillion rials ($52 million), one of the county’s municipal officials said. 
According to Reza Qasemi, 3.6 kilometers of tunneling for the Eslamshhar subway have been completed in the last 18 months, costing approximately 2 trillion rials ($8 million), IMNA reported.
“The progress represents 35% of the construction,” the official said, adding that more funds should be injected to expedite the project.
Qasemi noted that the government has allocated approximately 3.5 trillion rials ($14 million) to the subway project in the 2021-22 budget bill, so the construction is expected to be completed in at least three years.
