​​​​​​​​Come and visit the largest infrastructure project in Israel! The Tel Aviv-Jerusalem High-Speed Railway Line.

Israel Railways invites you to take a tour of the Tel-Aviv Jerusalem High-Speed Railway Line Visitors Center where you can get an up close look at the largest infrastructure project in Israel. The High-Speed Railway Project will connect between Jerusalem and the Gush Dan region in less than 30 minutes, and will be the first electric railway line in Israel!​

As part of the line building process, along 57 km of rail:

  • ​We have established 7km of bridges, including the highest railway bridge in Israel at 95m , as well as the longest bridge in Israel -1,250m in length. 

  • We have breached 38km of tunnels, including the longest tunnel in Israel which runs to 11.6km.

  • We have used advanced technologies, including 3 TBM machines for tunnel breaching, which were being used in Israel for the first time. 

  • We have established an underground station 80m below the ground, which is one of the five deepest railway stations in the world!

  • We have built a rail system using advanced systems.

And we've achieved all of this, while preserving the environmental texture, nature and landscape. ​

What is included in the tour?

Tours take place in the Visitors Center’s main hall (Guy Gate) where visitors are given an explanation about the line accompanied by films or a visit to the Yitzhak Navon Station in Jerusalem (Entrance via Shazar Street opposite Binyenei HaUma (International Convention Center)). It is possible to combine both locations dependent on the size of the group and with prior arrangement.​
