Recently, the Knesset State Control Committee met to discuss the Yerushalayim-Tel Aviv high-speed railway, a project which is way behind schedule and way over budget.
Although the Tel Aviv-Modiin portion of the line is currently in use, most of the Modiin-Yerushalayim section is nowhere near completion.
Meanwhile, a few years ago, railway workers finished building a long bridge just outside of Modiin.
The bridge was designed to lead into a tunnel under a nearby mountain, but it remains to be seen when – or, perhaps, even if – construction will commence on the tunnel.
Here’s what the bridge looks like from above. (As always, click for a closer view.)
The Israeli version of the bridge to nowhere…
Special thanks to YZG for taking these pictures during a recent road trip.
Update: Leora has another view of the same bridge here.
