Fast lane to the future
Roadwork to create a new lane for public transportation caused traffic jams at the entrance to the city this week. Officially, the work should be completed by today (Friday) and the relief to drivers of private vehicles as well as bus riders should be felt immediately. Buses and cabs will no longer contribute to congestion on Yermiyahu and Weizmann streets when entering or exiting Jerusalem, but instead will make use of the dedicated public transportation lane. These improvements are part of a much larger plan to completely transform the access roads to the city entrance – for today’s needs as well as for the expanded needs of the new “business neighborhood” under construction in the area of the new Yitzhak Navon railway station and the International Conference Center.
