      Road Six Extension North Approved

      The Ministerial Committee for Interior Affairs on Sunday authorized an extension of Road 6 northwards. The new section, when completed, will extend to the Somekh junction, just east of Haifa. Currently, the road ends about 20 kilometers south, at the Tishbi junction.

      Besides providing an easy way for residents of the Haifa suburbs to reach the center of the country, the committee said, it would enable drivers heading to the Galilee to avoid traffic in Haifa.
