A new steel bridge stretching over the bustling Rokach Boulevard in northern Tel Aviv will soon allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross from Ganei Yehoshua to the Rabin Heritage Center. The NIS 6.6 million bridge, positioned overnight between Sunday and Monday, will open to the public in the coming days and is expected to serve as a crossing point for students and others on their way to the university and northern neighborhoods, the municipality said.

Constructed by Netivei Ayalon and designed by architect Zakhi Halberstadt, the bridge has a height of five meters and weighs 53 tons, the city said. A bike path is being paved on the northern side of the bridge to directly connect cyclists with Haim Levanon Street.
