NIS 200m. given to intercity roads

Transportation and Road Safety Minister Israel Katz determined on Sunday that his office would be investing NIS 200 million in safety projects on the country’s intercity roads. The funds will serve to improve many points and sections of intercity roads that have been deemed high-risk, such as those on Highway 31 in the South and Highways 65 and 85 in the North, the ministry said. The points and segments in question were identified as requiring immediate attention by an interministerial committee, which included representation from the ministry, Netivei Israel – National Transport Infrastructure Company Ltd., the Israel Police and the National Road Safety Authority. In addition to financing these projects, the ministry will throughout the year be investing an additional NIS 300m. in various urban road projects, it said. By making all of these improvements, Katz said that his ministry hopes “to continue the downward trend in the number of road accidents recorded in recent years.”
