Glilot interchange ( Northern Tel Aviv)
[B]Just wondering about this interchange...are those street lights up ahead or is it a "highway" intersection?[/B]


Motorway#31 Beer Sheva - Arad) ,Southern Israel
A second question regarding this road pictured....you state it is a motorway/freeway...though at most it looks like a two lane highway...does it lead to Motorway 31 maybe?

As far as the rest of the newer pics I've seen since my last post...great stuff! keep posting!:cheers:

I'm not sure exactly where you mean, but they probably are street lights. Most of the motorways and a good proportion of lesser roads are lit in their entirety. Almost all junctions in the country are lit.

Road 31 certainly is not a motorway -it's a fairly minor road that appears to start in the middle of nowhere near Ofakim and then go through Arad to the dead sea. I'm not sure that I've ever driven on it.

I think he might be asking whether or not there are traffic lights on the motorway (it looks as if there is something like that up ahead), and I believe there are, because I know that Glilot is not a full interchange yet (a flyover has been built recently), but in that case I also don't believe that this road section is classified as a motorway.

However (to the poster who asked the question), as you can see by the blue sign, if one continues forward through the junction, he/she then reaches motorways 5 and 20. As RoadUser has explained previously, the colour of direction signs in Israel is that of the destination, and not the road on which they are on. I may be wrong however about this intersection, perhaps someone who lives in Israel can confirm.

Oh . . I was misunderstanding the question, and confusing Glilot with Ganot (a common mistake).

Yes that is a traffic light in the picture. That picture is rather old. Since it was taken there is a new flyover that takes traffic from Road 2 to Road 5. Road 2 is not a motorway at that point.

If you turn left there, over the new flyover, then you do still hit a traffic light on road 5. There is another new flyover under construction there, that will take traffic coming off Ayalon left briefly onto Road 5 and then 2, and that last traffic light will be removed. There are serious roadworks at Glilot - not only the new flyover, but the access ramps are being moved, etc.

The new flyover:



And the one that is under construction:
Before:



and after:

When will that road be opened by, and how much is it expected to cost to ride the road(in shekels)?

Also what is the Shekel to Dollar rate?

Hi all,

A few months ago, I had the dubious pleasure of driving from Rishon Lezion northwards into central Tel Aviv in the rush hour. the traffic on the Ayalon (Road 20) was so horrible that I took some pictures of it with my phone camera. Notice how the electronic signs helpfully let you know that all five lanes are stuck in traffic . . .

I've a question. Why some signage is trilinguage (English, Hebrew and Arabic) and other only bilingual (English - Hebrew) ... Are there someplaces in Israel where everything is trilingual and other bilingual and what's the official status of arabic in Israel?

Arabic is one of Israel's two official languages. As for the signs, I don't know the reason that some signs are trilingual and some are bilingual. There is a lot of trilingual signage, but as you can see, not all of it.

Hi all,

I took some photos on my way to work this morning. I´ve only just discovered this forum - before this I had no idea anyone would be interested!

Road 1

Approaching Ben Gurion Interchange



Ben Gurion Interchange: The very long bridge is part of the new railway between Ben Gurion Airport and Modiin which is opening in about ten days. When it opens I won't have to drive to work anymore!





Approaching Shappirim Interchange:





Approaching Ganot Interchange. This is where I turn off onto Road 4:



Here you can just about see a train between the two carriageways of the motorway:



Road 4




Approaching Aluf Sadeh Interchange:









Bar Ilan Interchange:



The very old and woefully inadequate Givat Shmuel Interchange:



Coming up to Morasha Interchange: I turn off here onto Road 5



Signpost to Road 6:



Morasha Interchange:





Road 5



Old-style signpost coming up to Kfar Hayarok Interchange:



Kfar Hayarok Interchange:





Approaching Glilot Interchange where I turn off onto Road 2:



Half built flyover at Glilot:



New Glilot flyover opened recently:



Road 2



Hasira Interchange where I turn off to Herzliya, where I work:
