Roughly 420 kilometers of railroad will be built by the end of the Iranian year (March 20, 2013), said the managing director of the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways Company.
Abdol-Ali Saheb-Mohammadi made the remarks on the sidelines of inaugurating a locomotive production plant in northern Alborz Province on Tuesday, the Mehr News Agency reported.
The plant has the capacity to manufacture 120 locomotives per year, according to the IRNA News Agency.
"Some €480 million plus 1 trillion rials have been invested in the project, which is aimed to create 750 direct jobs and 3000 indirect jobs," the Fars News Agency quoted Saheb-Mohammadi as saying.
He added that some 70 trillion rials (around $5.7 billion) has been allocated to develop railway infrastructures.
Some 25,000 kilometers of railway is in operation across the country, the deputy roads and urban development minister Ahmad Sadeqi has said. He added that by the next two years all the country's provinces will be connected together through the railroad network.
