The new Route 16 in Jerusalem was inaugurated

09 Sep 2022

On August 31, Route 16 was inaugurated: the highway new section provides central Jerusalem with a new thoroughfare. The section, which is about 6 kilometers long, connects Route 1 directly to the Givat Shaul neighborhood, reducing traffic in the city's southern and western suburbs. The mainly underground location allowed for a substantial impacts reduction, both on the urban sector and on Jerusalem's important forested areas.

Pro Iter designed the underground works, from the Preliminary Design to the detailed construction phases.
