Blue Line is back

After a rather long period without any new moves on the Blue Line light rail project, it’s time to get back to business. A special hearing of all involved parties was held this past Wednesday at Safra Square. Officially, this hearing by city engineer Shlomo Eshkol and members of the local planning and construction committee has no real impact on the decisions of the district planning committee, where the entire project is awaiting a final decision regarding its route. However, the municipality is obliged to hear all the residents’ objections.
