Spotted: Jerusalem Light Rail

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

Jerusalem is the holy city, but it’s also a living city.  Neighborhoods, shopping districts, business districts, schools, hospitals, grocery stores, restaurants, synagogues, government buildings, traffic.

Like every city there’s constant activity.  Some old buildings are torn down, new ones built up.  New roads are built, old ones repurposed.

Anyone who’s visited Jerusalem in the last 6 years knows it’s been in the middle of a relatively big change with the building of a light rail system.  Roads have been closed off as tracks are laid, stations are being built and massive disruption to traffic patterns and access to parts of the city has occurred.  Over time and over budget (as such projects tend to be) the question has been…will it ever end?  Will it actually work?

It’s not done, it’s just testing.  But yesterday the following was spotted…

That’s it!  It’s the light rail on the new spindle bridge!

Looking forward to all that traffic saving easy Jerusalem travel in the near future.  (Looking forward to Moshiach too.)
