Construction of new Jerusalem light rail routes to begin in coming weeks — TV

The construction of the “green line” of the Jerusalem light rail will begin in the coming weeks, reports Channel 12.

The 27-kilometer line, which will run from Gilo to Mount Scopus, is expected to have 50 stops, according to the network.

In addition, the existing “red line” running from Mount Herzl to Pisgat Ze’ev will be extended to the Neve Yaakov neighborhood in the north and the Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in the south, the report says.

The green line and extensions to the red line will gradually become operational between 2022 and 2025.
