Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on Sunday warned that the Israel Railways will be closed if the safety level of trains is not raised.

Last week, Katz told the railway administration to prepare a plan to improve train safety amid recent accidents, including a collision between two trains that injured 60 people in Netanya when one of the conductors ignored a red light.

Katz said that if within four months a program improving railway safety and services, that is acceptable to all relevant parties, is not presented, train services will be closed.
