Do any of you have special road signs for your city's authority area roads? Because in Modiin, we have these unique nice rectangle thick road signs, and I haven't seen something like that anywhere else. Only the flat curved corner signs that are used on the highways.

Google Earth has new imagery dated 24 July 2015 showing the reconstruction (upgrade to dual carriageway) of Hwy 65 from the Golani Interchange north to Hwy 85 and of Hwy 85 from Hwy 65 east toward Hwy 90. It looks like construction will be completed sometime in 2016.

The new Tzalmon Interchange connecting Hwy 65 to 807 is now open. This is part of the ongoing work to upgrade Hwy 65 from 1x2 to 2x2 all the way from the Golani Interchange north to Hwy 85. Some of the works are visible in Google Earth.

It's interesting how Highway 6 bulges to the east near Be'er Sheva, instead of following existing Highway 40, which is a fairly high-standard bypass of the city. At first hand a western route around Be'er Sheva looks like it makes more sense, providing this city with bypasses on either side, instead of two bypasses to the east. It could also provide better access to Hatzerim Airbase. But maybe they wanted to improve access to eastern communities such as Arad and Dimona, and Nevatim Airbase.

It makes you wonder if they ever want to extend Highway 6 all the way down to Eilat. It's still fairly far from Be'er Sheva (200 kilometers).

Highway planning in Israel has to consider the possibility that forces may need to be shifted during wartime. This was an issue in both 1967 and 1973.

I really doubt that Hwy 6 would be extended all the way to Eilat, but the future lasts a long time. All the discussion about improving transport links to Eilat are about a possible rail link, which would mostly serve freight.

The rational is that traffic to: Arad, Eilat (via road 90 ) Dimmona and the new army bases is by far larger that west bypass of BS.

Hwy 9 has Opened

Highway 9 is now open, providing a new east-west connection between the north-south roads Hwy 4 near Hadera and Hwy 6 near Maor.

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-n...ens-1001126882

Most of the route is visible under construction in a 13 January 2013 Google Earth image.

A new bridge bypassing a dangerous curve on Highway 1 in western Jerusalem has opened to traffic. It carries westbound traffic. The eastbound bridge will open in November. It's part of a major project to upgrade this segment of Highway 1 to higher standards.

Highway 65

A new interchange opened in northern Israel along Highway 65 at Kadarim. It's part of a project to upgrade 20 kilometers of Highway 65 (between Highway 77 & 85) to a dual carriageway with interchanges. So far, 6 out of 8 planned interchanges have been completed.

Avalon Highway in Tel Aviv to be Covered by a Park

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-p...way-1001139393

Fair use excerpt:

"The goal of the project, which might reach a 240 dunam plot (about 60 acres) is to create new, public, open spaces based on existing space. The famous Ayalon Highway, which at present splits Tel Aviv into two parts and generates air pollution and noise at the center of the city, will become a hub of recreational activity, with bike tracks, walking trails, green areas and cafes, right over the Ayalon Highway."

240 dunams is 24 hectares.
