Very cool

Tehran's Line 1 (Red Line) is extending 3 station to the North- Midramad, Shariati & Gholhak stations, which fall into Northern Tehran region and this helps people who live in North of the city to connect easier to the Central and other areas.

Shaving or not is not really about personal hygene, its about personal presentation and therefore a fashion issue. Different countries and regions have different tendencies when it comes to mens shaving habits and the reasons are many. Where I am almost equal amounts of men choose to shave and not shave. But this is totally off topic.

Subway Reaches Two Historical, Crowded Squares - Tehran Municipality



Another part of the fourth line of Tehran subway was inaugurated on Monday in the presence of Mohsen Hashemi, managing director of Tehran and Suburbs Subway Company, and company staff. The new part extends from Ferdowsi square to Enqelab square.
SAMA reported that on Saturday, May 30, another part of the fourth line from Enqelab and Pirouzi avenues will be inaugurated in presence of Tehran mayor, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, and a group of civil and military officials.
The first phase of the fourth subway line from Ebn Sina square to Ferdowsi square was opened in late April with three stations at Darvazeh Shemiran, Darvazeh Dowlat and Ferdowsi square. Shohada station of the second phase had been made operational late last year.
Due to the presence of major educational and cultural institutions (like Tehran and Amir Kabir universities) in the area of Enqelab square and population density around Shohada square as well as Pirouzi and 17 Shahrivar avenues, the new lines will carry a lot of passengers and will play a very important role in reducing traffic jam.

NICE! Those are the ones we are hoping to get in Toronto, once our bureaucrats funnel enough money to friends and business contacts.

Is there a station between Ferdosi Sq and Enghelab Sq at Daneshjoo Park and the National Theatre at the Vali Asr intersection?

No I mean at the National Theatre on Vali Asr at Daneshjoo Park. There should be one there no? Thats quite an important and busy spot right? Ferdowsi Sq and Enghelab Sq are quite far apart for consecutive stations and that is the spot as far as I understand that lines 3 and 4 will intersect.

I doubt there will be any station there. I mean, why would they build two stations first and built another between them when the line 4 already operation between the 2 points?

Actually wait... If where the yellow (4) and blue line intersect eachother is Azadi station, then the intersection point of the yellow and pink line must be Enghelab sq, so there are 2 more stations between the purple and pink line in the yellow line (4) which are Ferdosi sq station and a new station which you are suggesting.

It could be that they build the line first and then add some stations later as they have done before. Where line 7 (pink) intersects with line 4 (yellow) is at the Nevvab-Azadi junction, not Enghelab, the next one is Enghelab, then between Enghelab and Daneshjoo Park there is another one serving The Univrsity of Tehran. Between Daneshjoo and Ferdowsi there is yet another at the junction with Hafez avenue where the TUSRC office and control centre is.
