New Jerusalem Tel Aviv Train Line in Israel

Jerusalem, Israel. 25th September, 2018. Commuters board the train and await departure to Tel Aviv at Jerusalem's new Yitzhak Navon Station, with platforms situated 80m below ground level. 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, begins 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.
