Tehran Metro

Preliminary studies including Tehran’s socio-economic and traffic condition and forecast up to 1991 began by Sofretu and RATP in 1971.

In 1974, final report with a so-called (street-metro) proposal was tendered.
The street-metro system recommended a road network with a loop express way in the central area and 2 highways for new urban areas and a 7-line metro network which were complemented by bus network and taxi services. Geological surveys commenced in 1976, but construction stopped during the period of the revolution and Iran-Iraq war.

In 1995, contract for E & M for Lines 1, 2 and 5. 1999, Tehran - Karaj suburban line (Line 5) was officially inaugurated. 2000, Mobilization of the western part of Line 2 between Sadeghieh and Imam Khomeini stations. 2001, Line 1 from Darvazeh Dolat to Ali abad with 8.5 km length was mobilized. 2002, Putting into operation of Line 1 from Mirdamad to Darvazeh Dolat with 6.5 km length, Putting into operation of Line 1 from Ali abad to Shahr-e-Rey with 3.9 km length, Mobilization of West Terminal. 2003, Putting into operation of Line 1 from Shahr-e-Rey to Haram-e-Motahar with 6.9 km length. 2004, Putting into operation of Line 2 from Imam Khomeini to Baharestan with 2 km length. 2005, Putting into operation of Iran Khodro station (Line 5), Putting into operation of Line 5 from Karaj to Golshahr with 10 km length.

The biggest problem with Iranian people is that they don't know just how great their country can be.

Must be one of the most beautiful Metro networks in the world... - Definitely!!!!

By the way fellow persian friends I've got you some questions:

How long is the entire Metro network right now?
How long will it eventually be?

Thank you in advance.

Cheers!

Even with all that oil, there is still an extensive public transport system! Excellent!

Is it also clean though?...Cause if it's clean as it is shown on the pics, then it has to be the most nicest and cleanest metro network in the whole world!

Hi

The current length is 102.5km but they are adding to it every year.

When completed the length of the tehran metro will be 350km and the length of the Greater Tehran metro ehich includes the sorrounding areas will be 700km which will take another 20~25 years to complete.

awsome job posting picts from an area of the world we here in NA almost never get to see. The system looks so clean and new, from what we hear in our media, you'd think everyone in the middleeast is living in caves. Why are all the stations so empty though?

Did I mention how clean they are? Are they freshly renovated, new stations, or just exceptionally clean? Look, the floor shines!

Great pictures! Will they evntually get to the originally planned seven lines? And have they kept the exact plan they had before the Iran-Iraq war, etc.?

Yes they will built all the 7 lines.

They havn't kept the exact plan and they have probably added to it because the population of Tehran back then was about 6 million but the population now is about 13 million.

Indeed a very nice metro system and probably an interesting city as well. The above photos are very interesting.

It's just a pity that the entire country and its government seem so harsh and anti-Western that many people don't dare to travel there as tourists (correct me if I'm wrong).
