 Israel's first bike tunnel to open in Jerusalem

The first bicycle tunnel in Israel, which is the fifth longest in the world, will open in Jerusalem this Friday.

According to KAN, Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion was the first to cross through the tunnel. The cost of the project is estimated at 25 million shekels.

Moshe Lion said that the tunnel is 2.1 kilometers long – the fifth longest in the world. The mayor hopes that the new tunnel will encourage the people of Jerusalem to use bicycles more.

“This tunnel will serve as a bicycle training for families and children. We are building dozens of bike paths throughout the city. Until now, cyclists have had to go up and down the mountain – this tunnel makes cycling accessible to everyone,” said Moshe Lyon.
