After the victory of Islamic Revolution in Iran, on 11th February 1979, sweeping and wide ranging changes were brought in administration, expansion and renovation of the holy shrine, under the able and dynamic custodianship of Ayatullah Abbas Waiz Tabasi, the reverend custodian of the Astan Quds Razavi.
During the last twenty one years due to the implementation of massive development and expansion projects like construction of grand new sahns(courtyards), riwaqs (porches) and various other complexes, the capacity and structures in the holy shrine had expanded four times. Thus, the expansion of the holy shrine during the last twenty one years is four times more than the total expansion of the holy shrine during its 1200 years old history.
Astan Quds Razavi during these two decades has spent till now one hundred billions Rials on these construction projects.It is worth mentioning that, Astan Quds Razavi in order to perform and accomplish all of these projects rapidly, has established some companies including the Wood Industries Company, the Traditional Tiles Manufacturing Company,Quds Granite Company and Machine-made Concrete Company.

This underground ring road occupies 35000 square meters of total area with connecting passages to the Shirazi, Nawab Safavi, Tabarsi and Imam Reza (A.S.) Avenues around the holy shrine. The passages from underground ring road to the Shirazi, Nawab Safavi, Tabarsi and Imam Reza (A.S.) Avenues occupy another 11000 square meters of space. The underground ring road around the holy shrine is the longest underground ring road in Iran.
