The Jerusalem Transportation Master Plan Team was established in 1968 and currently serves as a model for comprehensive city and metropolitan planning. The team operates based on a general concept by which traffic affects all resident needs, urban development and future challenges in the transportation, development, employment and lifestyle fields in the urban context.
This project included management of the preparation of outline plans for all light rail lines in Jerusalem in the framework of a general plan as well as the detailed plan of the first line from Pisgat Ze’ev on the Moshe Dayan Highway to Mount Herzl.
All rights-of-way were included in the boundaries of the plan including lands used for installations required for railway operations.
This plan paved the way for implementation [of the light rail system] and form the basis for construction of each of the lines, one after the other.
