Finally, the Ministry takes pride in its achievements in reducing vehicle and traffic accidents, showing a steady decrease in the number of casualties on the roads – about 22% over the past five years. It aims to reduce the number of deaths on Israel’s roads to below three-hundred by 2015. As of now, the mortality rate on Israel’s roads this year has been reduced by about 25% compared to last year.

The Ministry of Transportation’s plans for the coming years affords good news to every citizen in the country. The only question remains is how much the Ministry will maintain the continuity and implementation of all these plans.

It is no secret that transportation development has suffered neglect and lack of promotion in the past two decades. Until recently, roads have not been revamped, the train’s route was not developed, and traffic jams across the country intensified due to an increase in the number of private vehicles. Lately, however, Israel has witnessed developments everywhere. Across the country, from north to south, there are new roads, interchanges have been built, railroads placed and more.
