Better late than never

From the fourth track along the Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv to electrification of Israel Railways entire network, everything is behind schedule.

Israel Railways hopes to increase the current annual traffic of 67.7 million railway journeys to 155 million in 2030 and 306 million a decade after that. According to this vision, the railway will become the main interurban means of transportation in Israel, with two types of trains: high-speed trains reaching a speed of 250 kilometers per hour and suburban trains with a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour, like the trains now in operation. This requires at least four tracks on every railway route, with separation between tracks for high-speed trains and tracks for suburban trains.

The high-speed trains will travel from Beer Sheva to Tel Aviv in 48 minutes, instead of 77 minutes at present, and from Haifa to Tel Aviv in only 35 minutes, instead of 54 minutes at present. Travel time from Eilat to Tel Aviv will be 160 minutes. Israel Railways plans to operate 50 trains at peak hours in 2020 and 140 trains in 2040.
