Hojjat-ul-Islam Seyyed Mohammad Aghamiri; A member of the Tehran city council in an interview with the social reporter of rahnam news agency about studies for the establishment of “trams” in Tehran stated: studies of the Tehran municipality regarding the establishment of trams in Tehran have not yet been submitted to the city council; But today there will be a discussion meeting about public transportation and this issue may be raised.
He said: As soon as the studies are received, a comprehensive traffic, economic, technical and social review of the tram will be conducted in the city council.
According to rahnam, Tehran Municipality plans to add the tram (a type of urban electric train whose carriages move on rails installed in the street) to the public transportation of Tehranis in order to change the face of the city and take a step in the direction of Expanding and improving the quality of the public transportation network.
Resolutions 156 and 175 of the Supreme Council of Traffic oblige the municipalities to update the comprehensive transport plan of Tehran that was prepared in the past; In order to realize this, the Transport and Traffic Organization of Tehran Municipality has signed a contract with a consortium (a large company, consisting of several companies) for a year to update the master plan. Currently, the studies of this project have been completed and we will soon send it to the Supreme Traffic Council of the country.
According to the conducted studies, 3 corridors have the conditions for the implementation of trams, which include Sharq New Terminal to Tehransar, Jantabad to Fatemi Square and BART bus traffic route on Ashrafi Esfahani highway.
These studies will be provided to the Tehran City Council for consultation and supervision, and the Supreme Traffic Council will give the final opinion as the main authority. After the approval of the plan by the Supreme Traffic Council, the municipality enters the first phase of the plan’s implementation.
