Jerusalem residents charged NIS 20,000-40,000 for new roads in Railroad Park
Under the 1975 Jerusalem Municipal Assistance Law, as well as Interior Ministry regulations, residents received bills from the city totaling millions of shekels for the work done in repaving and adding sidewalks to the park's principal street.
Jerusalem recently completed the first section of its Railroad Park, and for months bicyclists and pedestrians have been enjoying the long and meandering island of green following the train tracks that once led to Tel Aviv.
