[D] Freight only. This 10 km long dual gauge (1520/1435 mm) border crossing was officially commissioned on 25 December 2017 and opened to traffic on 29 March 2018. At present it is a dead end branch: construction of the Rasht - Astara IRIR line is expected to be completed in 2020. Astara ADDY will be equipped with bogie changing facilities and probably also an SUW 2000 gauge changer.
