Tel Aviv to Eilat Railway to be approved by Government in Israel

Israel National News is reporting that Israel's Government is expected to next week approve the proposed train line between Eilat and Tel Aviv.

It is expected that the railway line, which has an estimated budget of over 7 billion Shekels, will either be a national project, built by a private franchisee or developed in collaboration with China.

It is understood that a collaboration with China is the preferred option of Israel's Transport Ministry, where a Chinese Government company would construct the railway.

Once complete the railway would allow journeys between Tel Aviv and Eilat in just over two hours.


  1. Oh, my goodness, that would be simply incredible. That would be just awesome!

  2. I'm confused. Why would it be preferable to have a foreign government build an Israeli railway?
