A plan to dramatically expand Jerusalem’s bike lane network was revealed by the Municipality yesterday.
Over the next five years, the city will invest 150 million shekels to install 123 kilometers of cycling infrastructure.
The plan is expected to be carried out in four stages:
- In 2019, lanes will be built in Kiryat Yovel, Ramat Sharett, Rehavia, the German Colony, and the eastern ring from HaKhan to the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus.
- In 2020, lanes will be built along Ein Karem, Kiryat HaLeom, Ramat Shlomo, Bayit Vegan, and Givat Mordechai.
- In 2021, lanes will be built in Gilo, Malha, Givat Shaul, and Beit Tzafafa.
- In 2023, the project will be completed with the addition of lanes in Ramot, Derech Hebron, and Har Hotzvim.
The result of the half-decade effort will be a connected network serving the most populous parts of Jerusalem.
