6 Kilometers of Highway 1 have been Widened

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-m...ned-1001140466

Fair use excerpt:

"The widening of the notorious six kilometer section of the Tel Aviv - Jerusalem highway between Sha'ar Hagai and Shoresh has now been completed.

...


The route of the new stretch has straightened out some of the sharper curves and steeper gradients and also includes an ecological bridge, so that animals can cross the highway."

generic masculine wasn't out of fashion until very recently and this looks like it has been thrown through some primitive translation software from 5-10 years ago.

Will the Highway 1 get Motorway status (blue signs) after completion of the major upgrade from Jerusalem to Latrun, or will it remain with green signs?

I would say that it is quite obvious that there is no room on the sign.

Road Trips in Israel and Palestine (Part One) - Hwy 6 North

I spent almost a month in Israel last November. Followings are pictures taken while driving. Enjoy!

Highway 6, or the Cross-Israel Highway, is a 193km highway (including the 76km of the southern extensions) along the eastern part of the country from south of Beer sheva to the Galilee in the north. It diverts traffic to the central region of Israel in order to reduce vehicle density and pollution in the greater Tel Aviv region and thus is one the busiest Israeli highways.


We're now on Hwy 1. Jerusalem is far behind us. Shortly before us is the interchange of Hwys 1 and 6.






Keep going on Hwy 1, you'll directly get to the Ben Gurion Airport and Tel Aviv. By turning onto Hwy 6, you'll by-pass Tel Aviv.


There are a total of three toll roads currently in Israel. The longest of its kind is Hwy 6. The toll road sign is shown at the entrance.








After the tunnel, the road is widened with four lanes in each direction.










Hwy 6 uses a system of cameras and transponders to toll vehicles automatically. There are no toll booths, allowing it to operate as a normal freeway with interchanges. A radio antenna detects when a car with a transponder has entered and exited the highway. Even without a transponder in the car, there are numerous cameras taking pictures of the license plate and charging the owner of the plate with the fee. Hwy 6 is based on the technology of the Hwy 407 in Ontario, Canada.






















By me.

Road Trips in Israel and Palestine (Part Two) - Hwy 1 Fast Lane

The Highway 1 Fast lane is a 13 km stretch of road running from just before the Ben Gurion Airport to the Kibbutz Galuyot Exit in Tel Aviv. Like Hwy 6, the system is automatic and records your license plate number to send you your bill every month.


We're again on the toll-free section of Hwy 1, from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.












You may choose to stay on the toll-free lanes or to "go faster" at your own expense - This can be costly if you are using a rental car!

End of Hwy 1 - the Kibbutz Galuyot Exit.

I always find it interesting how Israel signs their roads with three different alphabets (!)
I don't think any other country does that.

Road Trips in Israel and Palestine (Part Three) - Highway 1 near Jerusalem

The new Highway 1 upgrade project, which is one of the most important transportation projects to be undertaken over the past years in Israel, includes the construction of bridges, tunnels and interchanges over a 16 kilometer segment on the road to Jerusalem.

As part of the plan, a third lane will be added in each direction, the road shoulders will be widened and the inclines and curves will be moderated.

Westbound, direction Tel Aviv.

We start on the new Motza Bridge. Instead of the dangerous road section at the Motza turn, two 800-meter-long parallel bridges - each with three lanes - have been built over the Motza valley.






The highway constitutes a national traffic artery and therefore two lanes will always remain open in each direction during the entire construction period.






Because the highway as well passes through a sensitive nature reserve, so a 70-meter-wide eco-bridge has been built to allow animals to cross the barrier safely.








Eastbound, direction Jerusalem.














The old Harel bridge, which was built decades ago, has been demolished and in its place two 700-meter-long tunnels are drilled under the Harel mountain ridge.




We are now again on the Motza Bridge.


By me.
