A new bridge connecting Iran and Turkmenistan, which will allow cars and other vehicles, will become operations today, said Iranian officials.

A spokesman for Iran’s Customs Administration (IRICA) said the bridge is located between Turkmenistan and Iran’s Sarakhs city in the Khorasan Razavi province.

The inauguration of the bridge will improve bilateral trade and transit between the two countries at the national and regional levels.

Iran and Turkmenistan share a 1,000 km-long border.

The Sarakhs bridge is in line with their reopening of land and rail borders, and is also a gate for Iran to access Central Asia.
