The trench is pretty deep already.
Probably as deep as with other stations that NTA already published pictures of.
They appear to be somewhere ~10 to 20~ deep at most underground stations.

I think it will be soon covered in concrete plates like the other sides.
It is likely the site will be accessed from the strip close to Kirya, with the rest of it covered to allow traffic flow.

Israel Railways carries record 31.5m passengers in H1 2017

Passenger demand was up on existing lines and also boosted by the new Jezreel Valley line.

Israel Railways transported a record 31.5 million passengers in the first half of 2017, compared with 29.4 million in the corresponding period of 2016.

The average daily number of passengers was 239,000, 12% more than the 213,000 daily average in the first half of 2016. Demand for most of the railway lines, both new (such as the Jezreel Valley route and the Netanya South Sapir station) and existing, increased across the board. May 2017 set a new record, with an average of 299,000 passengers transported a day.

The most prominent route in the rising trend in demand were the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem route with a 26% increase, the Asheklon-Beer Sheva route (20%), and the Tel Aviv-Hod Hasharon route (8%).

A. The Tel Aviv-Jerusalem line is still the old line and the demand was probably because of the pesach
holidays falling on Q1 this year instead of april which is Q2.
B. A lot of the trains are packed to full with people standing. they HAVE to add more trains urgently.
C. With the new routes to Karmiel and Jerusalem opening in 2018 the numbers will increase 20-30% again next year

The lack of trains is mainly due to the bottleneck at Ayalon corridor- which severely limits the number of trains passing through Tel-Aviv. Sadly this situation will only be partially addressed by the electrification project and the installation of a new signalling system- a permanent solution (=adding a fourth track in the problematic section) is still far away.

What do you mean?
The main issues in this particular project are:
1. Lack of engineering experience in such projects in Israel (just like with subway).
2. Fear of serious disruption of Ayalon highway artery and the railway.
3. Lack of funding (this is a pretty expensive project after all).
4. The lack of political dividends such project could bring to any politician getting involved.

What happened to the Karmiel line? Wasnt it suppose to work by now? Also, have they started electrification works yet? The TLV-Jerusalem line will end up being built and unused unless they speed up the process.

Anwers:
1. Karmiel line will open on September the 20th.
It was just inaugurated by Bibi and Katz who made a maiden ride.
2. They have started electrifrication works on Jerusalem/TLV line a long time ago.
Some tunnels and some parts of the track are already electrified.
They have even started working on the active parts of the tracks.
The line itself is finished and what remains (the significant parts) are:
Platform extensions in Hertzliya, and Tel Aviv stations.
Electrification (obviously)
Not a part of A1 per se, but still related, additional terminals' construction in Savidor and Shalom train stations.
The terminal in Savidor should open at the end of this year (somewhere around November).
The terminal in Shalom should open in 2019 (but it won't really delay A1 opening).
There are also some finishing works in HaUma station, but they appear to be on track.
They just connected HaUma station to a high voltage line for supplying power to the various subsystems of the station.

Good news all the way. Are there any pictures available?

The bridge over Emek Haarazim doesn't have rails yet.

The IR map now has Achihud and Carmiel. It also has Kiryat Malachi (instead or Kfar Menachem, for some reason) and it has Merkazit Hamifratz on the valley line. Both of them are marked for opening this year.

No rails, or no electrification poles?
From Shabbatashtiot, it was my understanding that track laying for A1 was completed a while ago.

There should have been separation between the carriages, in case of a bombing on board one of the carriages. Well I guess it is so small it hardly matters, so casualties would be limited by the small size of the trains.
