Deputy road minister told that contractors for the second part of Tehran - North project has been selected.
"Kheirallah Khademi", director of transportation infrastructure, construction and development, in an interview with ILNA, regarding second part of Tehran -North highway contractors selection told that all the second part contractors have been selected by public invitation and technical evaluation but in some cases the second ranked company may take the project because it is technicaly superrior than the first one.
Calling the physical progress of the first part desirable, he stated that in the next year they will start being used publically. “The contractor of the whole project is “Mostazafan Foundation” and the “Tehran – North high way” company has the responsibility of the selection. We have ensured the foundation to choose the best” he added.
Deputy road minister pointing to the project, having bult in international corridors, said:” there are some international corridors that have been defined so far and our important projects also are generally in the path of these international corridors. Our major problem in these sections is separated rings and parts that until the time, these rings would not connect to each other, the international and transit corridors would not have desirable performance."
Khademi, regarding the foreign investors appeal about entering the infrastructure projects said: “Fortunately in the highway projects section, several negotiations with foreign companies and commissions have been held, but we have to accept the fact that in the high way section, the condition for the investment is not desirable. In other sections the negotiations are ongoing.”
