New Jerusalem Tel Aviv Train Line in Israel

Tel Aviv, Israel. 25th September, 2018. Commuters hurry to board the train to Jerusalem at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport Station. The new Jerusalem Tel Aviv 'King David' train line, Israel Rail Project A1, designed to connect Israel's capital to the Greater Tel Aviv metropolitan area, began commercial operation today, after 10 years of delays, a budget that more than doubled from a planned 3.2 billion NIS to an actual 7 billion NIS, on a limited basis, only to Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion International Airport due to further delays in construction and in electrifying the track between Ben Gurion Airport and Tel Aviv. The new electric line includes 40 kilometers of tunnels and eight bridges. Eventually, the 28 minute ride will replace the old Ottoman era, 1 hour track, through the Judean Hills.
