 System

Shiraz has some 1.3 million inhabitants and lies in the southwest of Iran, about 500 km south of Tehran. It is the capital of the Fars province.

When finished, Line 1 of the Shiraz Metro will be 22.4 km long and will connect Gol-e-Sorkh Square to Ehsan Square. There will be 20 underground stations and one station above ground (Chamran Bridge).

The southern 15 km two separate tunnels with a diameter of 7 m are being constructed, the rest is being built as a double-track cut-and-cover tunnel. Between Chamran Bridge and Mirza Koochak Khan Sq., the line is at grade. Stations in shallow sections have side platforms, and deep-level stations have an island platform.
