Opening of the northern entrance of Basij (B7) station
Basij (B7) station as the second station of Tehran metro line 7 at the intersection of Basij and Mahallati highways was opened in September 2019 with one entrance (southern entrance) to be used by citizens of the southeast of Tehran in the district 14.
Considering the need to open and operate the second entrances in each metro station in order to facilitate passengers' access and also to meet safety requirements, the second entrance of Basij station was on the agenda of Tehran metro in February 2021.
Completing the second entrance, the volume of passengers entering and leaving the station will increase and also will lead to ease of passengers' access to the station on both side of Mahallati highways and reduction of pedestrian accident. Basij station is located at a busy and dense area of District 14 of Tehran Municipality and provides easy access for citizens of east Tehran to the central areas of Tehran, including the Grand Bazaar, northwest of Tehran and important service centers by connecting to operating metro lines 1, 2 and 3.
The station is about 17 meters deep and it is the second station from the beginning of line 7. For convenience of disable people, related elevators and escalators will be put into operation at opening time of the station.
