After more than six years of work, the light rail completed tonight (Thursday) a first test ride along the red route. The two trains operated by the Urban Transport Routes Company (NATA) left the Depot complex in Petah Tikva at 00:30, stopped at Jerusalem Boulevard and arrived at Bat Yam Stadium at 03:00, a 24-kilometer route.



The night operation was accompanied by a police security ring whose job was to prevent residents from approaching the train dangerously. But even the late hours of the night did not stop many residents from pulling out their cellphones and sharing the historic moment. As part of the test drive, a number of components of the train complex, communications, signaling, electricity, the track, cameras, the carriages themselves, and its propulsion and safety mechanisms were put to the test.



"We made history today, we practically traveled from Petah Tikva to Bat Yam. For the first time, we opened the line from side to side with a perfect system in terms of electricity, carriages and tracks," said Nata CEO Haim Glick, adding that "we still have a lot of systems coordination work ahead.But this is a historic day.
