Northern Phase of Tehran Metro Line 6 Officially Opened

The northern phase of the Tehran Metro Line 6 was officially inaugurated on October 10, 2023.

Senior Iranian officials, including President Ebrahim Raisi and Tehran Mayor Alireza Zakani, attended the inauguration event in northwest Tehran.

Ali Emam, head of MAPNA Mobility, represented the conglomerate in the opening ceremony.

The northern phase of the line extends for 5.5 kilometers and consists of five stations.

The Tehran Metro Line 6 project commenced in early 2017 with the involvement of MAPNA Group, SABIR International Co., and Shahr Bank. Three phases of the project have already been implemented.

MAPNA Group’s involvement in the Tehran Metro Line 6 project includes design, engineering, procurement of main equipment and spare parts, transportation, installation, test and commissioning, preparation of engineering documents, and personnel training for operation.

It also includes power supply equipment, control and signal systems, facilities, telecommunication infrastructure, rail lines, escalators, elevators, inter-tunnel air conditioners and ventilators, entrance gates, and the SCADA system. Once fully operational, Tehran Metro Line 6 will give the capital’s subway system the longest route in Iran. The line will stretch over 31 kilometers with 27 stations, starting from Sulqan in the northwest and ending in Dolat-Abad district in the southeast. In further stages, Line 6 will expand to Shah Abdol-Azim Shrine in the ancient district of Rey to the south of the city, becoming the longest subway route in the Middle East with 38 kilometers of length.
