Authorities in Tehran are working hard to overcome obstacles in the way of subway construction to provide people with a more efficient and environmentally friendly mode of transit.
On Tuesday, Manaf Hashemi, Tehran Municipality’s deputy for traffic and transportation affairs, toured the construction sites of subway lines 6 and 7, stating that two additional stations will open next month, ISNA reported.
“The Shahid Rezaei and Towhid stations, respectively on lines 6 and 7, are almost complete and they will open as soon as the remaining equipment, like elevators, escalators, lighting and signage, are installed,” he added.
Ali Emam, the CEO of Tehran Metro Company, predicted that at least nine additional stations on lines 3, 6 and 7 will open by March 2022, describing the current year's development projects. 
“On the southern flank of Line 6, which runs 7.5 kilometers up to Shah Abdolazim Shrine Station, we plan to finish tunneling and railroad infrastructure,” he said.
According to the official, the line will subsequently connect with Shahr-e Rey Station on Line 1's southern end, based on the line's expansion plan.
