When the city finally has a complete and effective mass transportation system, the saga of the second light rail line, the Blue Line, will probably remain a case study in how to handle – or not to handle – such large-scale projects involving so many parties, including the residents that the project was meant to serve.

This project has reached a turning point. By the end of this week or the beginning of the next, Mayor Nir Barkat must announce whether he will submit the project as it now stands.
