Today, route 4370 was opened to traffic, the first section of the Eastern Ring Road. The road s part of a transportation project in northern Jerusalem, which will significantly ease the traffic congestion in the northern part of the city. 4370 stands at about 30 million NIS and in the first stage, the road will open from 05:00 to 12:00 every day.

The transportation project is the product of cooperation between the Jerusalem Municipality, Mateh Binyamin and the Ministry of Transportation, implemented by Moria, which rehabilitated the road starting in 2016. The works included the rehabilitation of the road building, waste removal, the regulation of safety and security elements, Including construction of the inspection passage. The road has two separate routes, one for those coming from outside the city and the other from the north to the east and south of the city:

One route - the western part of the road will connect traffic north of the city to the east and south of the city, without connecting to the city of Jerusalem and without crossing checkpoints, which will facilitate Palestinian movement in the area.

Another route connects the communities located north of Jerusalem to the city of Jerusalem itself via the security inspection crossing to the Naomi Shemer tunnel or the French Hill junction.

The two roads are about 5 kilometers long.

The Minister of Transport and Intelligence, Yisrael Katz, said that his ministry had invested more than NIS 30 million ($ 43 million) on Highway 437, which is part of the eastern ring of Jerusalem. "The paving of the road constitutes an important step in connecting the residents of the Binyamin region to Jerusalem and in strengthening the metropolitan area of Greater Jerusalem, following the opening of the Adam and other initiatives promoted by the Ministry of Transportation in recent years."

"This is one of many other steps to strengthen the services of the Ministry of Public Security on its bodies to the residents of Judea and Samaria and to strengthen sovereignty in the area," said Interior Minister Gilad Erdan. "We will continue to work to expand Israeli sovereignty throughout the entire area, while maintaining strict and consistent security needs." Over the past year alone, over 700 operations have been carried out, including searches, arrests, ambushes, closures, Arrests of praise, immediate stones, Mali "This is our reality here and in the country as a whole, a reality in which policemen stand at the forefront of the fight against terrorism, present, prevent, defend."

Minister Erdan referred to the AIRBNB boycott of residents of Judea and Samaria and called on the company to reverse its antisemitic decision to remove records of Jewish properties in Judea and Samaria. "It's not enough that they came here, held a few meetings and declared that they are against the BDS. They have to prove it in deeds. Not the company's decision will not move to the agenda. * As long as the company does not retract its intention to discriminate against the citizens of Israel, and to apply double standards vis-a-vis Israel, we will continue to advance steps, both on the regulatory and legal levels here in Israel and vis-à-vis our friend in the US and the world. We will not tolerate any form of boycott against Israeli citizens "

Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon: "This is true news for the residents of the Pisgat Ze'ev and French Hill neighborhoods. Opening the road at rush hour will create a significant load distribution and relief in the immediate range of traffic congestion in the Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood.

Beyond the traffic burdens we are solving today, we also strengthen Benjamin and inaugurate the natural and desirable connection between the Binyamin region and Jerusalem. I believe that the opening hours of the road will be extended and will be fully opened. "

Binyamin Gantz, head of the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council: Project after project We solve the problem of traffic jams at the northern entrances to Jerusalem. In a very successful cooperation between Mateh Binyamin, the Jerusalem Municipality and the Ministry of Transportation, there has been a transformation of access roads to the capital of the State of Israel, no longer narrow and congested narrow roads, from now on advanced, safe and impressive transportation routes, as befits a capital city. The road that opened today is no less than an oxygen pipe for the residents of Binyamin and the entire region. The development of the transportation system from Binyamin to Jerusalem is also a strategic process for the city of Jerusalem.
