A ground-breaking ceremony was held on Tuesday for Phase One of an underpass in Hojatoleslam Hosseini Boulevard in Varnamkhast [a town in the Central District of Lenjan County, Isfahan Province] with Bahram Sobhani, the managing director of Mobarakeh Steel Company (MSC), in attendance.
Also present at the ceremony were Lenjan MP Majid Mansouri Bidakani, Commander of the Logistical Base of Defense Industries Moniee, Lenjan Governor Mohsen Sajjad and Varnamkhast's Friday prayer leader Ghasem Torki.
The MSC chief addressed the ceremony and said that thanks to its status in the country and the region, Mobarakeh Steel Company has undertaken social missions and responsibilities, adding that his company has offered assistance to different areas across the country according to its means.
Given the fact that Saba Steel Complex is located in Lenjan, Sobhani said, Hojatoleslam Hosseini Boulevard in Varnamkhast serves as a link road for MSC.
He went on to say that carrying out development projects is one of the social missions of Mobarakeh Steel Company and added that construction of an underpass in Hojatoleslam Hosseini Boulevard in Varnamkhast is a lasting project which will reduce [road] accidents in the area.
"When I was at the helm of Esfahan Steel Company, the company built a grade separation to align a junction of Zob-e Ahan road and the road leading to Zarrinshahr. The project was aimed at setting the stage for safer traffic in the area. Thank God, the implementation of the project won the satisfaction of local people," he said.
The MSC managing director stressed the need for his company's support for nearby regions and said that Mobarakeh Steel Company focuses on efforts to develop roads and build infrastructure.
Sobhani then expressed hope that implementation of the underpass project in Hojatoleslam Hosseini Boulevard in Varnamkhast can secure the satisfaction of people.
The first phase of the underpass in Hojatoleslam Hosseini Boulevard in Varnamkhast – whose entrance is four meters wide and four meters high – has got underway in partnership with Mobarakeh Steel Company, Isfahan's Defense Industries and Varnamkhast's Municipality, absorbing more than $110 million in finances.
It is worth mentioning that on November 29 a meeting was held at the MSC office in Isfahan in which the MSC managing director, Mobarakeh governor and the director general of Isfahan Provincial Roads and Urban Development Office discussed ways of implementing a third phase of a freeway.
The meeting also reviewed ways of implementing the remaining part of the third phase of this freeway which links Safaeiyeh Refinery to Karkevand Square, and to enforce the Lav-Majlesi Intersection. The participants agreed on the topics on the agenda, with Mobarakeh Steel Company voicing readiness to have a partnership in the efforts to facilitate the implementation of the local project.
