High Speed Rail from the Kosel to Tel Aviv


Minister of Transportation and Road Safety Yisrael Katz has instructed the ministry’s staff to promote the planning of an extension to the upcoming high-speed railway line from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim so that it extends into the Old City, near the Kosel, Ynet reports.

As part of the project, an underground stop will be built in the Kosel area.

The extension will involve digging tunnels for two kilometers at a depth of 80 meters. Minister Katz mentioned that the extension should significantly decrease congestion at the Binyanei HaUma railway station, allowing tourists, students, and others to reach the Kosel easily and quickly from central Israel.

The high-speed railway project’s costs are estimated to be about NIS 7 billion. Work on the line is expected to conclude by the end of 2017, Ynet reports.

  1. I wouldn’t recommend it now, because we see what happens in the arab parts of the city. Why add more stops there, so that more will ride, and there will be more potential for damage? I believe Moshiach is coming and then we’ll need it, but when he comes, he’ll get the job done 1-2-3.

  2. Moshiach is so very close. Finally, Klal Yisrael, the holy precious nation of Hashem, we are footsteps away from Moshiach’s arrival. We have no idea what’s about to happen. All the signs have been out for a long time already. All the birthpangs of Moshiach have already paved the way for our awesome redemption. Hashem can not wait any longer to be reunited with his beloved children at the Beis Hamikdash. All the tragedies Klal Yisrael went through, the spiritual holocaust happening right now, immorality at a horrific level like never before, Islam on the rise. ACHEINU BNEI YISRAEL, Hang on for the ride back home to Yerushalayim!!
