After the official launch of two new stations in Tehran Metro’s Line 7 early this week, urban managers assured the citizens of swift progress in the expansion of Tehran subway network.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony on Monday, Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi said by the end of the current Iranian year (March 2020), a major part of the line will become operational, ISNA reported.
"Of the total 25 stations planned for Line 7, 16 will be delivering services to the public in six months," he said.
The newly inaugurated stations Basij and Mahdiyeh along Line 7's eastern flank came on stream late last week after the stations and the tunnel were successfully tested a week earlier to ensure its smooth operation. However, officials postponed its public announcement to several days later.
