For the time being, the forth lane to the northen direction starts just before this place and goes up to the Poleg interchange. Actually it is a very long (1.5 km) exit lane. But, as it may be seen on the picture, the bridge is wide enough for 4 lanes in both directions, so it probably was built keeping in mind further road widening.

Israel has 4X4 lanes motorways indeed; how many km that type of motorway (4x4) reaches?

I think the only true 8-lane motorway in Israel is the central section of Road 20 (the Ayalon Highway). That section is about 10km. When Road 20 leaves Tel Aviv northwards and southwards it becomes 2+2.

Road 431 has a 4-lane section near Rishon Lezion, but I'm not sure whether this is in both directions (4+4) or only westbound (4+3)

Other than that I think all 4-lane sections are simply widened as they approach an exit, where the 4th lane becomes an exit lane.

Thanks.

EDIT: I actually have about 300 photos from another drive I made during the same trip, but I haven't uploaded them. Not sure about the best way to do it (link to an album, or post directly here in sections).

Not to mention the fact that he posted them in this very thread

Day drive from my hometown to a city at the outskirts of the desert:

The descriptions of the videos are very detailed, and so is the labeling of all the roads in the videos, so I'm not going to go into detail here in the thread.

Isreal uses yellow hard shoulder for motorways exactly the same as Ireland - in fact you could not tell the markings apart by the looks of the pictures. It looks exactly the same. Example http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...wM50Dublin.JPG. I think the two only "European" countries that use this form of marking? Does Isreal also use American style yellow diamond "new world" signage?...and if it does who is copying who?


Great looking roads!

Only that you drive on the left I seem to recall South Africa also having yellow hard shoulders, but they drive on the "wrong" side too.

Nope.

Heh yeah, Israel uses the yellow margins on all roads that don't have a curb, not just motorways. But you are right, I don't know any other countries that have these conventions except for Ireland and South Africa. I've seen yellow margins in some other countries (like UAE and I think Pakistan) but their usage seems to be inconsistent. In Israel it is defined by law.

Dont expect to build motorways in the golan heights. It is an occupied zone, and you cant build there.

The Golan is a whole lot of nothing. Why would anyone want to build a motorway there?

There are of course highways in the Golan Heights, some of which are of pretty good quality. But in general, you are exactly right - sparse population, very difficult topology - no motorways needed or even feasible. Though there might be some dual carriageways there in the vicinity of some of the towns, I'm not sure.

Is the infrastructure on the Golans from the time that it was Syrian, or did Israel build a new infrastructure over there after 1967?

I don't think a motorway there is needed, as the border with Syria is closed anyway.

Road 6 Trans israel highway has now 17 km of 3 lanes

The First stage of upgrading was completed last week, in time for the Jewish new year eve.
This section is 17 km, in the most busiest part.

I mentioned several times that I made lots of road photos on my trip to Israel a few months ago (May 2009), but for various reasons didn't have time to upload them. I will attempt to do that in several installments, as time will allow. Overall I have upwards of 300 photos, but hopefully they won't eat up too much bandwidth. All photos were taken by my cell phone (Nokia N85), so the quality is so-so.

Nazareth Illit -> Petah Tikva, ~120 km

Part 1: A drive inside Nazareth Illit:

A little approximate map of this part:

































Old street behind a commercial centre, consisting of stores and bakeries:









Turning onto a one-way street:











































Turning left at the roundabout to exit the city via Route 6400 (not numbered in all maps):



Next: Part 2: Route 6400, Highway 79, Highway 77
