Hi all,

This is all that's left of the northernmost section of the Ayalon Highway, aka Road 20. The picture is taken from the footbridge over the railway lines at Herzliya. The work is part of the project to extend Road 531 to link with Road 2, and to extend the railway line from Hod Hasharon to Herzliya, making a circular line through Tel Aviv, Bnei Berak, Petah Tikva, Kfar Sava and Raanana. Two new railways stations are to be built in Raanana, according to Israel Railways website. Part of the project is also adding two new railway tracks between Tel Aviv and Herzliya, and upgrading Herzliya station.

The pic is actually a couple of weeks old, and I will update when interesting things start to happen.

Some updated pics or the work at the Herzliya end of the Ayalon Freeway:

The road is now completely gone:



A huge mound of earth has appeared by Herzliya railway station:

Well now...this certainly explains why the traffic webcams have been out of action, along this section!

Work Halted on Jerusalem - Tel Aviv Highway

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-w...way-1000997746

Fair use excerpt:
"Work on widening the Sha'ar Hagai-Shoresh bottleneck of the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway has been halted over the past month due to the contractor's financial difficulties. On November 29, Mordechai Binyamin & Sons Earthworks (1993) Ltd., which was upgrading the 6.5 kilometer stretch of Road 1 between Sha'ar Hagai and Shoresh, was granted a stay-of-proceedings by the Nazareth District Court due to debts of NIS 178 million.

Work is continuing on the other sections of Road 1 being upgraded, including widening the road to three lanes in each direction from Shoresh to Motza, the Neve Ilan Interchange, the Mevasseret underpass to replace the current Harel Interchange, and the Motza elevated section to replace the current Motza curve."

Nice video. It's worth to place it here. Best to watch in full screen HD.

Neve Ilan Interchange opens

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-n...ens-1001023895

Fair use excerpt:
"The Neve Ilan Interchange on Road 1 - the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway - opened late last night. The new junction allows direct access to Neve Ilan, Kiryat Yearim (Telshe Stone) and Abu Ghosh for drivers coming from Tel Aviv, instead of needing to continue to the Hemed interchange, and then return back.

The new interchange is part of major upgrade of Road 1 between Sha'ar Hagai and Jerusalem, which is due to be completed by 2017, at a cost of NIS 2.5 billion. the Neve Ilan Interchange cost NIS 200 million."

Judging from Google Earth, that used to be a right-in, right-out interchange, direction Tel Aviv only. So traffic towards Jerusalem had to turn around at the next interchange.

Yes, that's what it says in the article I linked to.

The Israeli thread was recently somehow abandoned. Meanwhile, intensive road construction continues through all the country.
Road 531 Herzliya-Raanana extension in the central region, just north to Tel Aviv.
The highway includes 12 interchanges, 36 bridges and tunnels.

question for the specialists...at 2:40, where we see that a mountain has been practically destroyed, could it be possible to turn those roads into tunnels and rebuild the mountain? cause it really is a ecological disaster....

That cut has been there for decades, though it was recently widened. There are much deeper and longer cuts in Europe and in the States.

That's an extreme exaggeration. Israel is the only country in the world which had more trees in the year 2000 than in the year 1900, so its the wrong place to go looking for ecological disasters.

i know all that, and ok maybe ecological disaster was a bit exaggerated...but still my question is if they could turn the roads into tunnels and rebuild the mountain, certainly would look much nicer than it is today...

Yes, it would be technically possible, but it would be extremely expensive for a relatively small ecological benefit. There are thousands of alternative ways the money could be spent with greater ecological benefits.

Hi all, this huge raised roundabout and underpass opened recently in the center of Modiin. It is just outside Modiin Central railway station, and will in the future house Modiin's main bus terminal.

Underneath it all is another layer, with four railway tracks.



and this is a nice picture that I took in Tel Aviv, from the bridge over the Ayalon Highway leading ionto the Tel Aviv Hashalom railway station.

I would seriously doubt that. In Europe a lot of countries have more forest than in 18 century.

At the moment we are at 60%.

1875 we were at 36%.

Was that really necessary? I mean, font color, size, topic not being very relevant for this thread...

I know this is a little bit off topic, but considering Israel's position in the Middle East and its access to oil, is there any information about electric cars in Israel? Are Israelis buying electric cars and is there any growth? I suppose this would help Israel in becoming more energy independent.

Yes, Israel has been at forefront of various electric car companies and schemes like battery-swapping (e.g. Better Place) and such being a country without oil but with intelligence
