Tehran plans to invest more than $16,000 million over the next 20 years to develop and expand its urban rail network. Speaking at MEED’s Middle East Rail Projects conference in Dubai on 12 December, Mohsen Hashemi, chairman of the Iranian Union of Urban Rail Companies, outlined plans to build 750 kilometres of light rail, metro and suburban heavy rail routes by 2025. The programme will cover seven cities with populations of more than 1 million, including Tehran (see page 6).
