targets of mass transportation

This is a very basic description and does not reflect the huge sucsess of the rail. in israel.

in my opinions the targets of the heavy rail should should be:

1.Be the main transportaion link between the 4 city centers, and this will be complete in 2018 when the new fast line to jerusalem is completed.

2.the main tool for daily commuters to get to the city centers and back, and this is the target with expending the coast line, the ayalon corridor, the new ayalon south-ashkelon-beer sheba line and the new sharon line to be opened late 2017.

of course the train does not aim to compete with city or rural buses. they will continue to feed the rail mainline if needed.

Travelling the tracks to connect Israel's largest two cities

The construction seems endless, but only a year and a half allegedly remain until the 28-minute high-speed train between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is to open; Ofer Petersburg traveled the section of it leading to the capital, containing Israel's longest bridge, its highest, a nature reserve, and the Mideast's largest tunnel.

New "Valley Line" railway between Haifa and Beit Shean opens 2016.10.16

http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-i...ine-1001143118

There will be five stations:

1. Haifa
2. Kfar Yehoshua
3. Migdal Ha'Emek
4. Afula
5. Beit Shean

Is the Haifa station a new station in Haifa or an existing station on the north-south trunk line?

The Haifa station will be the existing one. However, I think that the future Haifa South station may be on the Valley Line.

Presumably Haifa Center. Its called "Center", its the closest one to the junction, and its roughly where the historical terminus was.

I found this map and appears that Haifa East station will be the new one - line and new planned stations are marked in red:

This is the station close to the old Hedjaz railways station, and to the
railway museum, right ?

It is in the same general area, yes. But I am not certain about them actually being in the same spot. It is possible, though.

So Haifa East will only serve this line or also north-south trains?

Its on the North-South route, so probably at least some trains will stop there. And some Valley trains will probably continue through to Tel Aviv or something.

The new station will be close to the existing Haifa Lev-Hamifratz station, adjacent to Merkazit Ha'Mifratz bus station.



The existing railway can be seen at the top of the picture, the new rail with the new station at the bottom left, and the renovated Merkazit Ha'Mifratz bus station between them.

Given the configuration of the station, and its relatively awkward location, I would expect most trains to run through.

The new station is not on the existing coastal railway, so obviously none of the trains in existing lines will use it. All of the train using the new valley line will stop on it. It probably won't be a good station for changing trains, but many passengers will probably use it in order to change to a bus.
In addition, the valley line is expected to terminate in Atlit station.

The new station apparently IS on the coastal railway, or close enough that it can be regarded as the same station.

The new station is called "Lev Ha'Mifratz East" in most maps.

Its the same building complex. That's close enough that it is really arguing semantics.
