Isfahan metro map

 System

Isfahan (Esfahan) lies in central Iran, some 400 km south of Tehran, and has a metropolitan population of more than 2 million.

The North-South Line alignment was designed through the city centre from a terminal and depot near the existing Kaveh intercity bus terminal to the Soffeh intercity bus terminal. It runs along the wide Chahrbagh Boulevard. The total length of this section is 12.5 kilometres, with 12.0 kilometres underground. This line has been under construction since 2001, and was meant for completion in 2005 from Kaveh to Imam Hossein (4.7 km). The remaining 7.8 km section from Imam Hossein station to Soffeh station was supposed to be finished by 2007. Later the project was expanded with a northwestern extension to Qods (Pasdaran), with the Qods - Shohada section now finally opened in Sept. 2015. The line is being built by cut-and cover, except for the Shohada - Azadi section, which is excavated by tunnelling machines.
