The light rail project for Jerusalem has been underway for some time, as anyone who has been through town lately can attest. I rarely go to town anymore; last night was the first time in a while, long enough for me to be shocked by seeing Yaffo street covered in braces:
It’s exciting to see an Israeli construction project actually underway and making progress.
Probably not so much for all the shops that had to be closed down because they destroyed an entire building complex on Yaffo… Remember the classic Jerusalem downtown favorites like Kent and Coffee Time? I don’t think that construction is related to the light rail, but is part of the general regentirying of the downtown Yaffo area.
So… dare I ask how public transportation (bus and taxi traffic) will work on this new Yaffo street?
