The final section of the road from Badroud to Kashan in Central Iran has been completed as part of the corridor that will connect Tehran to Bandar Abbas, he said. A total of 1.5 trillion rials (US$35 million) credit had been assigned to complete the 10 kilometers four lane road from Badroud to Kashan.
