According to the Mehr correspondent, a group of transportation and urban planning specialists and professors from different universities in the country wrote an open letter criticizing the unprofessional approval of expensive urban transportation projects and calling for the suspension of these projects.

The full text of the letter is as follows:

Dear Dr. Jamali Nejad
Honorable Deputy Minister of Urban and Rural Development of the Ministry of Interior and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Traffic Coordination of the country’s cities

Hi and respect

As you are aware, the request for the construction of tram lines in some cities of Iran, such as Isfahan, Rasht and Hamedan, is on the agenda of the Supreme Traffic Coordination Council. This issue is in the process of approval for some specific corridors of Isfahan, outside the usual process of comprehensive urban transport studies (314) and detailed studies of integrated urban public transport (777).

In the current situation, on the one hand, the problems caused by the supply of currency and sanctions, cause half کاره Many urban public transport projects and equipment imports have remained; On the other hand, we are witnessing a decrease in public transport passengers and operators of the urban transportation system. In such circumstances, conducting integrated expert studies, based on the approach of resistance economics and the optimal selection of infrastructure projects, is a double necessity that requires high accuracy and sensitivity. Tram transportation system is an emerging system in Iranian cities and setting up a 10-kilometer route requires spending 150 to 200 million dollars (3,500 to 5,000 billion tomans) to import equipment and spend the financial and economic resources of the city and country in Many years to come.

We, as a group of professors and experts in the field of transportation and urban planning of the country, according to the current special conditions, please review this issue in that High Council, avoiding haste, during the usual expert procedure and after determining the results of comprehensive transportation studies. And urban transport (314) and detailed studies of integrated urban and suburban public transport and the possibility سنجی Riley (777), in terms of integration with other existing urban public transport systems such as the metro and BRT, the volatility of urban public transport travel demand and the consideration of all possible flexible and efficient options and demand-based systems to be done, God forbid experience Do not repeat the bitter decision-making process and the current uncertainty of projects such as Qom Monorail.
