Heh thanks, the Israeli forum (from which I assume you pulled these pics) has been almost dead for a while. I personally am very busy with the last semester of my Engineering studies (yey ), so I haven't posted much. I also still need to finish my road photo series (of my trip to Israel) at some point. I am however planning on buying a car in the summer, and possibly an HD camera, so I will hopefully be able to produce nicer Canadian videos

Well, the Ashkenazi old people (particularly the Russian speakers from the former USSR) likely can speak Yiddish (people like my own grandparents), so you would be able to communicate with them. In general, though, Yiddish wouldn't help you much in Israel, unless the aforementioned group is your main target group.

Nice pic. For the uninitiated, BTW, that's the Ein Hakore interchange on Road 431.

Other news from this week; another 13km section of Road 6 is being widened to 6 lanes, between the Eyal and Nahal Oz interchanges.

Yes, amazing. I did not expect such a vegetation, nature and greenery.
It's like the road in Europe.

Well, hello. It`s Mediterranean climate, not a desert.

Except when you go deep south - then it is a desert.

I saw almost all the Mediterranean countries (except Italy, France and Israel) and there was not much of nature and greenery.
Only was artificially irrigated, was green.
But season may be different

Those pictures were taken in December, I think I read on the original forum.

In the middle of the summer everything is a lot browner . . .

I was going to post those same pictures in the railway forum. I'm wondering if there's any point doing it now?

That's not really a metro line; it's part of the new Tel Aviv - Rishon Lezion line that will go down the center of the southern part of the Ayalon Freeway (Road 20). Eventually the line will be extended further south to Ashkelon, and, I believe, Beer Sheva.

In the end there will be a total of nine stations along Road 20 - the northern five (4 in Tel Aviv and one in Herzliya), have been open for several years.

Other railway stations in the middle of highways include Rishon Lezion Rishonim and Paatey Modiin, which are at either end of Road 431, but which are not connected to each other. There is apparently a plan to build a line down Road 431 at some point in the not very near future.

Hod Hasharon Station is in the middle of Road 531.

I can't think of any more at the moment.

BTW., all of the stations you can see in the pics are not yet open, except for the one in the top two pictures. That station is Tel Aviv Hahagana, the southernmost Tel Aviv station. In the pictures you can see that they are building two new platforms (on the right) to accommodate the new line to Rishon Lezion.

Is this the place they wasted millions on the tunnel just to preserve this old building?
