Israel Rail to Halt Main North-south Artery for Four Days

All stops between Binyamin and Herzliya to be affected amid construction on three bridges in the Sharon region, between Wednesday and Saturday.

Israel Railways will halt services across the Sharon region, just north of Tel Aviv, for four full days at the end of this week.

Service between Herzliya and Binyamina, a main artery between north and south, will stop on at midnight on July 24 (Tuesday/ Wednesday) and resume on Sunday July 24 at 4 A.M.

The purpose of shutting down the service is to fix the tracks on the bridges over the Hadera, Alexander and Poleg Rivers.

Over the course of these four days, traffic from the north will stop at Binyamina, and traffic from the south, Be'er Sheva, Ashkelon and Modiin will conclude their route in Herzliya.

The intermediary stations on the Herzliya-Binyamina route – Beit Yehoshua, Hadera Ma'arav, Netanyahu, and Caesarea -Pardes Hannah – will not have any service at this time.

The three bridges under construction were built in the 1950s, and are to undergo serious foundational work.
