Israel Railways opened last week a new second track on the Be'er Sheva-Tel Aviv route, slicing commuters' travel time from 90 minutes to a neat 55-minute trip.
 
The upgrade of the Tel Aviv-Beer Sheva line included the construction of 19 road-rail separations and scores of bridges.
 
For the first time ever, train service will be provided 24 hours a day, just as the lines from Ben Gurion International Airport to Tel Aviv and Nahariya operate. The Israeli railways would soon add more night time trains to and from the airport.
 
Transportation Minister Israel Katz noted in a press release that "the upgrade of the line brings the periphery closer to the center of the country, and broadens the employment and residential opportunities for residents of the Negev and the south. The new line will raise real estate values in communities along the route.”
