“We are pleased to announce that the District Committee has decided to advance the program we have been fighting for over the past two years: a light rail along the Emek Refaim  route.

0202 Editor’s note:
 The proposed blue line of the light rail that will travel through Emek Refaim Street has been a topic of great controversy of the last two years. As well as being a commercial center, Emek Refaim is the main route for both public and private transportation in the German Colony neighborhood. The alternative option to have the light-rail run through a parallel public park was also contested and has recently been rejected.
