Concern over new rail-track in Haifa - Monday 14th March 2011 News

Israel Railway is planning to convert 420km of track to electric power to replace fuel based trains.  However, the City of Haifa and the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel is trying to stop this from being implemented in south Haifa according to the Jerusalem Post.

The concern is that in this area between the city and the Mediterranean Sea, electricity poles will be places along a 7km route only 20 meters apart in a sensitive ecological area.

Haifa Municipality are suggesting that tracks are built into a tunnel along the 7km route in southern Haifa
