According to IMNA, Javad Sherbaaf on live television program of "Inja Isfahan" meaning “Here is Isfahan” stated: History of subway refers to the years before Zowb Ahan factory of Isfahan was constructed, in fact a rail line had been supposed to be built from the airport to the Zowb Ahan factory.

He added: Some companies especially a Japanese one have conducted some researches, but the first steps were taken in the year 1991, and a contract was signed with a French company.

“The lengthy of urban subway lines are about 60 kms and suburban lines are about 150 kms”, announced Sherbaaf.

He further emphasized: The cause of more interconnection of Isfahan lines and neighboring towns is to make Isfahan and five suburbs unify, so that they can communicate more.  

Isfahan mayor as the administrator of intercity lines, stated that following his plans in cooperation with the city council, the first line will be fast accomplished in the current year, line 2 will be finished within five years, and line 3 along with the first line will undergo the development process soon.  

Sherbaaf stating that in the cities of over one million inhabitants, there is the approach of rail transport such as cable cars and subway, declared: There is no possibility of building the new passages in Isfahan but we make new, secure and rapid ways by going into ground depth. Due to it, there will be less pollution and cleaner environment.

“After the subway line reaches the Azadi Square, it will be running from morning to 10 p.m.”, the advisor remarked.

Regarding the construction of subway line 2, he said:  The municipality has received UNESCO's permission to pass the subway from Imam Sq. but because of some concerns, the decision was revised.
