The subway project of Tabriz, the provincial center of East Azarbaijan, has received 7 trillion rials ($25.4 million) in new funding in the current Iranian year (started March 21), as the government is trying to ramp up infrastructure spending for public railroads.
During a visit to the subway construction site on Thursday, Fereydoun Babaei, a member of Tabriz City Council, stated that the budget will be spent on completing Line 1, the Persian economic daily Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
“In the western part of Line 1, the construction of three stations, namely Laleh Junction, Gazran and Qonqa, has progressed by around 80%. Only 30% of construction were completed in 2018-19, demonstrating that the city's subway workforce has made selfless efforts over the past few years,” he said.
Babaei noted that the new budget allocation will help expedite construction and provide citizens with greater subway access in the near future.
