I'm surprised there was no thread for this project.

Iran cuts ribbon of Qom monorail system
03.08.2009

Iran has started the construction of its first monorail system in the central city of Qom, some 150 kilometers south of the capital, Tehran, reported PressTV.

The first stage of the monorail, comprising a 6 kilometer line with five stations, will link the north terminal of the city located at the Qom-Kashan toll way to the city's grand mosque.

The first phase is expected to cost more than $120 million and is estimated to take 30 months to complete.

In the next phases, the monorail will continue to Pardisan town, south of Qom.

The monorail system will extend 18 kilometers in total, according to the governor general of the city.

The construction of Qom's monorail comes as part of Iran's plans to ease traffic congestion in major cities.

The holy city of Qom which lies near Tehran is a significant destination for a large number of pilgrims. The project is aimed at improving services for the citizens and pilgrims visiting the city.

qom will get monorail and metro?? WTF
either one is enough

and then mashhad, a city of 5 million gets a light rail,

mashhad is in need of a metro
Since when does Mashad have 5 million people?

A monorail is essential for Qom, because it connects the city to Parand city and Tehran after.

Mashhad has more like three million, plus its system will be the first completed outside Tehran with plenty of scope for extensions and new lines.

اجرای منوریل قم هم متوقف شد

:bash:
رویای داشتن منوریل بار دیگر نقش بر آب شد ؛ نماینده قم در شورای عالی استان ها خبر داده که پروژه منوریل قم هم متوقف شده است.

به گزارش « شهر » گویا قرار نیست پایه های مونوریل در کشور ما پا بگیرد و این آرزو حالا بعد از توقف دومین طرح نیمه کاره اجرا شده منوریل در کشور به رویا تبدیل شده است.

فروردین ماه خوبی برای منوریل ها نیست. در فروردین ماه سال گذشته تنها نشانه های منوریل تهران که پایه های آن بود، برای همیشه از پایتخت جمع شد و حالا در فروردین 90 نیز روند اجرایی پروژه منوریل قم متوقف شده است.

محمدرضا باقر پناهی، نماینده قم در شورای عالی استان ها، تصریح کرده است: پروژه مونوریل به دلیل نداشتن مطالعات اولیه و مصوبه شورای شهر در عبور از مقابل حرم مطهر حضرت معصومه (س) متوقف شده است.

مرداد ماه سال 88 بود که کلنگ احداث منوریل در قم بر زمین زده شد، دولت درصدد بر آمد تا طرح نیمه تمامی را نیز به اتمام برساند، منوریل.

نماینده قم در شورای عالی استان ها دلیل توقف در اجرای منوریل قم را نداشتن مطالعات اولیه و مصوبه شورای شهر دانسته و تاکید کرده است؛ با توجه به تقاضای مکرر اعضای شورای شهر از مجریان طرح برای ارایه مطالعات و عدم در اختیار قرار دادن آن به اعضا و همچنین جلوگیری از بین رفتن نمای بصری حرم حضرت معصومه (س)این پروژه متوقف شده است.

وی با بیان این که این پروژه فرآیند قانونی خود را طی نکرده است، خاطر نشان کرد که پروژه مونوریل علاوه بر نداشتن مصوبه شورا، در طرح جامع این شهر هم لحاظ نشده است.​
