Shahid Chamran Expressway (Persian: بزرگراه شهید چمران‎) (Also known as Parkway) is an expressway in Tehran, Iran, leading from Tohid Square to Parkway Junction. Chamran is the oldest expressway in Tehran, and is unofficially called Parkway Expressway or just Parkway for short. The expressway is named after Mostafa Chamran.

As of August 2007, main intersections of Chamran Expressway, from south to north, include dissecting Bagher Khan Street, passing under Jalal-e-Ale Ahmad Expressway at Nasr Bridge, passing under Resalat Expressway and then Hemmat Expressway, and passing under Niayesh Expressway at Velayat Bridge. It changes its direction to west-east near Seoul Street.[1]
