Haifa-rail_Haifa_merkaz_hasmona_rail_stationAs part of the 2017-2018 budget, the Israeli government is set to spend NIS 12 billion (USD 3.1 billion) to give northern Israel an improvement.

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon have proposed a plan outlining changes for the north, including building a light rail line between Haifa and Nazareth cities.

Thus, 12 billion NIS will be invested in infrastructure, including expanding Haifa’s Metronit bus system to include nearby areas, building a light rail train line from Nazareth to Haifa.
