Iran To Lay Track To Link Kerman With Zahedan


LAHORE (Daily Times) — Iran Railways has decided to lay a railway track to connect Kerman with Zahedan to improve the freight business between Pakistan and Iran.

This was said in a meeting between senior Iran Railways officials, including Yar Mantay, Hussein Tahami and Seyyed Jalil Winth, and Pakistan Railways (PR) General Manager of Operations Aurangzeb Khan and other senior PR freight officials at PR headquarters on Thursday.

Presently, no railway link exists between these two cities and Iranian track ends at Kerman while the track from Pakistan ends at Zahedan. Businessmen from both sides use other means to transport goods between the two cities. The Iranian delegation told the PR officials that the 18-month project would start after formal approval of the authorities concerned. The PR general manager told the delegation that business between the two countries would grow after the completion of the project.

The PR additional general managers for passenger and freight wings also met Mr Khan and informed him that the PR earned Rs 1.40 billion during July 2004, Rs 260 million more than it earned in July 2003."
