Haifa railway to go underground
09 Nov 2015



ISRAEL: On November 3 the Haifa municipality approved a US$336m agreement with the Finance Ministry which will enable part of the coastal railway through the city to be rebuilt below ground level.

Burying the railway will enable the construction of 7 700 flats, and improve public access to the western part of the port area to support the development of hotels and entertainment areas

The number of passengers using IR's trains in November was 4.9 million, breaking August 2015's monthly record of 4.77 million passengers. November's record is a 10% increase from November 2014.

Great progress on Ha Umma station! I hope the old, abandoned buildings between the tram tracks and the street will also be revitalized in the near future.

Ofakim station

Ofakim station has opened.
Here are photos from Israel Railways' facebook account (https://www.facebook.com/irail):











The new station is on the "red" line - just northwest of Beer Sheva:

Why did they write "Tachanat Ofakim" and "Ofakim station" on the platform signs? Usually it's only the town's name...

I think that line is almost finished, actually. Wasn't it supposed to open in 2017?

I don't know. There are stupid demands from Haifa to delay the electrification and I guess the tunnels are just short enough to allow diesels to use them temporarily. It should open in 2017, but it won't be electric until they finish with the Haifa customs station.

I don't know. When Paatei Modiin was opened, it was known as "Modiin Station" until they opened the terminal. They also have strange locations. Hod hasharon is actually closer to Kfar Saba and vice versa.

We don't use bricks in Israel that much. The building itself is concrete and the stones are just covers. In case you didn't notice, the train bridge is in the background.

Israel approves $US 7bn rail investment plan
Thursday, February 04, 2016



ISRAEL's transport minister Mr Israel Katz approved on February 3 what is claimed to be the country's largest railway budget which calls for an investment of Shekels 28.3bn ($US 7.24bn) until 2020

The budget includes Shekels 12bn for electrification, Shekels 3.4bn for new electric-train depots and converting existing depots for electric traction, and Shekels 3.7bn for new signalling including the introduction of ETCS Level 2, for which tendering has just started

The only significant project here which isn't a "must have" is the Rishon-Lezion-Modiin line, and especially the part between Ha'Rishonim and Moshe-Dayan stations which is supposed to pass within West Rishon-Leziyon, and might prove to be a bureaucratical nightmare because of opposition from residents who live near the line's projected path (although those plans had been made long before their homes were constructed) and from Rishon's municipality (although this line will provide great public transportation to tens of thousands of people).

Anyway, it should be noted that some of the rail projects financed by Israel's MoT are missing from IR's development plan bacause they are actually managed by another governmental company, National Roads Company of Israel.

Record Ridership on Israel Railways in March
By Dror Halavi

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 7:37 am | כ"ז אדר ב' תשע"ו

YERUSHALAYIM - Some 225,000 Israelis used Israel Railways on an average workday in March, figures released by the railroad said. That amounted to a total of 5.4 millions rides for the month – setting a new ridership record and beating out the former “champion,” November 2015, by over a half million rides.

The project includes the construction of five new stations and uses part of the alignment of the 1050mm-gauge Hedjaz Railway, which was abandoned in 1951. Passenger services are due to begin operating on the new line by the end of the year
