Tabriz, Isfahan Investing in Subway Development Projects
The government has invested 100 trillion rials ($393.7 million) in Tabriz subway’s Line 2 expansion. Starting from the west in Qaramalik, the line will reach the exhibition center in eastern Tabriz after crossing 22.4 kilometers and 20 stations

In line with the country’s policy of promoting eco-friendly public transportation, metropolises such as Tabriz and Isfahan are expanding subway connectivity.

Late last week, urban officials in Tabriz, the provincial center of East Azarbaijan, announced that the government has allocated 100 trillion rials ($393.7 million) to subway development in the city, the Persian economic daily Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.

Mohammad Reza Pourmohammadi, the governor general of East Azarbaijan, said the budget is planned to be spent on Line 2 expansion.

“The construction of Line 2 will be conducted in a phased manner and the approved funds will only be spent on the first phase, which includes the first 10 kilometers starting from Qaramalik. Besides propelling the construction, the budget can benefit companies directly and indirectly involved in the project.”

Pourmohammadi noted that Tabriz subway is one of the prominent urban transportation project prioritized by urban managers.
