Trans-Iranian Railroad in Line for Global Status Trans-Iranian Railroad in Line for Global Status

The dossier of the trans-Iranian railroad, prepared in late 2017, has been submitted to UNESCO for inscription in the list of World Heritage Sites. The file will be reviewed and revised by the end of the current summer to fix the shortcomings that UNESCO experts will possibly point out, Vahid Aliqardashi, head of infrastructure engineering management at the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways Company said.

"Heritage experts and inspectors from UNESCO will scrutinize the nominated railroad in person during their planned visit to Iran next year for final decision," the website of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, quoted Aliqardashi as saying.
