The Jerusalem Municipality has completed a pilot program to test the viability of automated parking systems. Each Ferris-wheel-like unit occupies two parking spots and provides 12-16 vertical spaces in exchange. After the success of the initial test, expect to see more of the systems pop up around areas of Jerusalem that lack sufficient parking.

Today Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat announced that the blue line of the light rail will be routed through Emek Refaim as originally planned. After months of countless meetings, deliberation, and petitions, the decision was made through careful consideration by the municipality.
In his statement, Mr. Barkat called the light rail not only a boon for the aesthetics of the street, but for the businesses that line it. Like the red line before it, the train is expected to benefit all residents through reduced pollution and increased safety.
Barkat went on to promise that the construction of the line will be completed in stages, ensuring as few interruptions as possible. An open dialogue will be kept with the businesses, enabling them to prepare for interruptions and share solutions.
