Southern District Planning and Building Committee meets to approve rail link to Gaza Strip

Southern District Planning and Building Committee meets to approve rail link
to Gaza Strip
Dr. Aaron Lerner 12 March 2018

The Southern District Planning and Building Committee meets today to approve
a rail link to the Gaza Strip via the Erez Crossing.

The plan includes the erection of a passenger terminal at the Erez Crossing
as well as a cargo terminal for the movement of cargo between the Gaza Strip
and Israel and in the future for the export of goods from the Gaza Strip to
the rest of the world.

Implementation of the double rail, which comes off of the Ashkelon-Beersheba
line, would dramatically reduce the cost of transporting cargo that is now
trucked to and from the Gaza Strip. It would also serve to relieve the
heavy truck congestion on Negev roads currently serving the Gaza Strip.
