Traffic Lights for 3 Gush Etzion Intersections


The Ministry of Transporation approved, Thursday, a program to install traffic lights on the highways of the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities during the first six months of 2012. The lights will be installed at the northern Efrat Junction, the Neve Daniel Junction and the Elazar Junction of the Jerusalem-Gush Etzion Highway.

The traffic lights represent the first phase of a program, which also includes a series of traffic circles, additional lighting of the roads, and additional traffic lights at accident hotspots. The improvements are in response to a rise in accidents at the cost of four lives and injuries to many others in the last two years.
