Light Rail Postponed by a Month Due to Malfunction

A Security problem and a ticketing malfunction caused the delay. Independent safety inspectors have not yet given the Light Rail their approval, and so the chairman of the Knesset Economic Committee MK Carmel Shama-Hacohen approved the transportation ministry’s request for the additional month.
