Changes in train traffic in the Dimona area

As part of the annual maintenance plan, work will be carried out to upgrade and replace the track in the Dimona area. Due to this, the Dimona Train Station will be closed, and train traffic on the Dimona – Be’er Sheva - North / University line will be temporarily suspended, from Friday, January 7, 2022 until Wednesday, January 12, 2022, upon the resumption of service.

We thank you for your patience and apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

  • It is mandatory to wear a mask inside the trains and in closed spaces at the train stations. Passengers are required to wear a mask throughout the journey and to practice social distancing.



Compensation during the closure
Tracks require regular maintenance, which sometimes requires the temporary closing of a rail section. If you have purchased a 30-day flexible Rav Kav or 7-day flexible Rav Kav, and you cannot travel because of a temporary closure of a track section, which was not announced on the Israel Railways website and in the stations seven days from the day the tickets were purchased, you be eligible for an extension of the use period of the ticket, depending on the type of ticket in your possession.

Pursuant to Ministry of Transport instructions:
  • The holders of student period tickets of any kind are not eligible for compensation for the closing of a track section.
  • If notification of the closing of a track section is announced on the website and at the stations 14 days before the start of the closure, holders of 7-day flexible Rav Kav will not be eligible for an extension.
  • If notification of the closing of a track section is announced on the website and at the stations 37 days before the start of the closure, holders of 30-day flexible Rav Kav will not be eligible for an extension.
