To improve drivers’ safety and decongest traffic conditions at major intersections throughout the capital, the Jerusalem Municipality announced Monday that it is working in coordination with the Transportation Ministry to study problematic junctions.

According to the municipality, the study, designed by the Transportation Ministry, will last roughly two months at designated intersections. Upon completion, a ministerial committee will recommend improvements to ease traffic at complex interchanges, the municipality said. In the coming days, a media campaign is set to be launched to inform drivers at select intersections of any unusual activity, as well as to raise awareness of the dangers of blocking intersections. Moreover, City Hall noted that “blocking intersections does not only affect the flow of traffic, it may also affect your pocket: The fine for blocking an intersection is NIS 250.”
