On the way back from Turkey and crossing the Razi land border, we entered Iran. We took a taxi to Tabriz airport. On the way to the bridge, the driver saw the camera in my hand and asked me if I wanted to photograph the bridge, to which I replied in the affirmative.

Bridge (Ghator)
Ghator Bridge is a bridge built on the Iran-Turkey railway near (Khoy). The construction of this bridge was completed in 1970. This bridge is of sub-arched type and had the largest arch span among the bridges in Iran for a long time. The bridge was also hit by Iraqi rockets during the Iran-Iraq war. Fortunately, the Iraqi rockets did not hit the bridge and hit the bridge. The bridge's engineer is said to be a Swedish woman.
This bridge is located 20 km southwest of the city (Khoy) and in the border area of ​​the city (Ghator) in the province of West Azerbaijan. Today, the thick bridge is also considered as a tourist attraction.

The bridge was built in 1968 by two Iranian companies (Rankin) and an Austrian company (Pour) and its concrete foundations were built and its steel frame and chassis were built by the Americans.
