This is old news. The Kfar Menachem station completion is already confirmed, and so is Mazkeret Batya, but Kfar Menachem first.

For Kfar Menachem, it's been aproved, and Mazkeret Batya's mayor said that the station is going to be built. The stations also show on the 2020 plan map, but both of them are probably going to be open at 2018, I'd estimate.

Well, you had no chance, since it wasn't the main topic. This is a bit old now, but the rally succeeded.

There are also the residents of Mevaseret who want a stop where they are on the Jerusalem railway, but that's a bit problematic. If that happens, they're going to somehow have to build an elevated railway on the side of the mountain. What would make more sense is a station by Shaar Hagai, on ground level, but there aren't any plans. Most people living close to the line would be using Paatei Modiin, but it would be nice if they made stops eventually for places like Nof Ayalon, which is right in front of the line.

Looks like they're opening the Ashkelon to Beer Sheva rail link on September 15. Ofakim station would open later.

Without any doubt it can be an interesting project, but, asking to jordanian officials about it, they only have mentioned to me a link between Aqaba and Basra, with the renewal of the Amman-Ma'an section. Not a single word about any link with Israel -which it is a pity. When I travel to Israel through Allenby bridge, even the road iwhich drives there once it leaves the Dead Sea highway is terribly pathetic for a proper international conexion.

And about the supposed link to Irbid, it sounds to me that that hypothetical link throught Sheik Hussein, once the Jordan is crossed, would start climbing the slope just in southern direction to Amman, not Irbid.

Nobody is sure if it's going to be for frieght only or interstate travel as well.
I'm afraid it would be freight only. I don't know a single jordanian who is thinking about spending a hollidays in Israel and vice versa.

Anyhow, this engineering company says they're going to build a railway to Chamat Gader. I'm not sure what the railways will benefit by this, since it's only a tourist destination with water parks and stuff like that, and this is the only website where the plan is mentioned, but this company built railways in Israel before, so I guess they might do it eventually. Looks like the closest thing to a Jordanian rail link, even though it isn't.

Tracklaying begins on Israel's Acre - Carmiel line
Tuesday, July 28, 2015



CONSTRUCTION of Israel's Acre - Carmiel line has reached a key milestone with the start of tracklaying on the 23km route

Tracklaying is being carried out by two Israeli companies, Lesico and Shikun together with Germany's DB Bahnbau, which are working from the Macher Junction end of the line at a rate of about 400m per day, with ballast being laid at around 800m per day. Embedded slab track based on the Swiss LVT system is being laid in the 4.6km Gilon tunnel.

The Shekels 2.8bn ($US 740m) line is designed for 160km/h operation and will be one of the first two railways in Israel to be electrified, the other being the A1 direct link from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

The high speed track between Netanya and Binyamina. (or adding additional 4 tracks, so six trains can run on the busiest line in the country at once) is probably for the train from Jerusalem which will eventually run up to Carmiel. There are 2 tracks for 250km/h, and 2 tracks for 160km/h and there are the existing tracks which need upgrading.

For the Sharon railway, there will be quadruplicated tracks between Tel Aviv and Herzelia, and there will be a third rail for the Ayalon railway, so trains going there won't need to wait for the train on the line to reach Haganah or Merkaz.

The Carmiel rails have been started already a few months ago. I guess railjournal isn't so updated. But good news anyways.

This one will never be built- too expensive and leads to nowhere.

Actually, it leads to a major tourist site and some smaller communities on the line.

Which opens up a seat for someone else who does not have your hang up. In Spain you go through security and in China it was on all the subways I took and before entering the railway stations. I am not a fan of over security but it won't stop me taking the train. And in Israel, it is kind of what I expected seeing their security issues.

But intercity buses also require controls at station entry, at least in large bus terminals like Jerusalem and Tel Aviv CBS. Anyway, it takes far less than security controls in airports.

Not such an issue really to go through security, it only takes a minute, but we're not going to cool it, because we have had quite a few incidents in the previous decades. In France, you probably don't have as many security issues.

Hip, modern junction... What are the new service patterns going to be. Only suburban trains will run the via Ashkelon route to Beersheva and express ones the regular via Lod?
