The project includes construction of three lines in the main road apart from service roads. A 10-meter line will be left in the center for establishing railway tracks in the future for operating electric trains. "It also includes three tunnels, each with a length of 185 meters and a closed tunnel with a length of 700 meters as well as construction of networks of public utility facilities such as water, electricity, sewage and rain water drainage," he said.
