Light Rail to Open in Mid-August
The Jerusalem Light Rail will begin to operate normally on August 19. The date was selected in a mediated meeting Wednesday between the various bodies and government offices involved in running the train.
The city has not yet installed traffic lights that will give priority to the train. Managers warned that without the new lights, the train could take twice as long to reach its destination.
