Israel Railways has officially confirmed the reopening.

The Tel Aviv Shalom, Tel Aviv Savidor-Merkaz and Tel Aviv University stations were closed beginning on September 19, and expected to  reopen only on September 27 at 5 a.m., Israel Railways announced last Sunday.

During the temporary shutdown, Israel Railways was constructing rail and electrical infrastructure for the high-speed rail, which is slated to open in another two years, as well as doubling and widening the tracks between Tel Aviv University and Herzliya, it said.
