Damascus, SANA-Al-Qadam railway station became ready to transport about 25,000 visitors per day to Damascus International Fair due to be held in its 60th edition on September 6 at the Fairgrounds.
The Fair’s visitors will go in journey by train which begins from al-Qadam train station towards Fairgrounds at the southern entrance of Damascus away from the traffic jams that faced the visitors last year.
Al-Qadam railway station has been out of service since 2012 due to the attacks of the armed terrorist organizations against it. It is a focal point of trains heading towards the eastern and northern and central regions.
