A NIS 20 million initiative spearheaded by the Jerusalem Municipality, Bituach Leumi and the Jerusalem Development Authority will make the Jewish Quarter in the Old City and the City of David wheelchair accessible for the first time.

According to the municipality, three of six contiguous ramps have been completed to accommodate disabled visitors.

Upon completion of the project at the end of the year, the ramps will afford access to the historic areas, as well as numerous other residential and tourist sights.
