Jnet - Get On Board With Success

We are delighted to present JNET – the next stage in the creation of an LRT transport network in Jerusalem.

This website contains all the information and documents regarding the Jnet Project, including the RFI, that was recently released. 

Since the launch of the Red Line in 2012, we witnessed a yearly increase of around 10% in the number of passengers, a total of 140,000 passengers per day.

We are preparing to choose the consortium that will build and operate the Green Line, with additional optional sections and lines.

The Green Line will serve around 160,000 of the city’s daily passengers ,and will connect some of its most important hubs, and together with the red line, will serve about 250K people per day.

We estimate this to be one of the largest projects across Europe and the Middle East. We are excited at the prospect of this and fully committed to bringing it to its optimal completion.

We invite you to join us in realizing the vision for a new transportation reality in Jerusalem.

THE GREEN LINE

The Green Line is on its way

The Government of Israel is currently developing the Jerusalem light rail transit initial network which will include the construction of a new Green Line and allow for the operation of 5 potential operational lines. The Green Line connects Mount Scopus to Gilo with a branch to the commercial and residential areas of Malha. The line, which will include 22.6km of track, additional depot & OCC facilities, an estimated 60-70 LRT vehicles and 33 stations, is expected to add up to 160,000 daily passengers to the network. The construction and operation of the Green Line are expected to be carried out in phases: an initial phase, which includes the construction and operation of the southern section of the line, and a second phase, which will include the completion of construction and operation of the full line. The Government of Israel is currently examining several operational schemes, including the operation of the entire network by a single operator. The entry of the LRT lines into major neighborhoods and centers of sport and culture is expected to contribute significantly to the living standard and mobility of its Jerusalem inhabitants in areas ranging from a reduction of air pollution to increased access to centers of higher education and employment.

THE RED LINE

The LRT Red Line

The LRT Red Line in Jerusalem is the first and only LRT project currently in operation in Israel. It is the first in a number of light rail lines which will together make up the Jerusalem LRT network. The Red Line opened for service on the 22nd of March, 2012 and runs between Mount Herzl and Pisgat Zeev via the city center. Its construction, financing and operation are regulated by a BOT concession agreement. The line, which comprises 13.8Km of corridor, 46 fully motorized LRT vehicles and 23 stops, serves more than 140,000 passengers a day with the expectation of further rapid growth in the coming years. The Red Line provides a steady 6 minute headway during the bulk of daily operation hours and benefits from feeder lines, park and ride facilities and priority at 65 main junctions located along the line. The forging of the major transportation revolution represented by the Red Line was made possible by a joint initiative of the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Finance and the Jerusalem Municipality. The light rail transit of the Red Line is almost unaffected by congestion and provides an unparalleled service. Its success to date is evidenced by the data: in its first 2 years of operation the number of passengers grew rapidly from 100,000 to 140,000 passengers a day.

Expending the Red Line

In view of the success of the initial Red Line, the State of Israel is currently looking into possibilities for promoting the construction of the extensions to the Red Line, as part of the future light rail network concept for Jerusalem. Accordingly the Government has begun implementing public sector infrastructure works and is exploring the option of advancing the remaining works for the construction and integration of the system, expanding the existing depot and purchasing new rolling stock through the existing Concessionaire serving as contractor. The extensions to the Red Line include a northern extension and link up with the suburb of Neve Yaakov, a southern extension to the Hadassah hospital at Ein Karem and a branch line from the middle of the Red Line which will connect the line to the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In all an addition of 7.7 km to the existing line is envisaged. The Red Line extensions project also includes an additional 44 rolling stock, 13 passenger stations, an expansion of the existing depot at French Hill and the addition of a stabling area in Neve Yaakov at the northern end of the line. These extensions, once completed, will provide a transportation solution for tens of thousands of additional passengers, bringing the daily ridership to an estimated 200,000 passengers a day, and significant improvement in the service provided to all passengers.

The Tender

Introduction

The Jerusalem Mass Transportation Plan (JTMT) is responsible for the planning and development of public transport in the Jerusalem metropolitan area. JTMT aims to ensure the implementation of reliable, effective and state of the art public transportation solutions in Jerusalem. The need to prepare a transportation master plan in Jerusalem arose for numerous reasons, foremost among these being:
1. Jerusalem is the largest city in Israel
2. most of the country's governmental and national institutions are located in the city
3. the city covers a very large geographic area with a population that is constantly on the rise and
4. the topographic structure of the city dictates the need for a unique transportation plan.

The first operation phase of the Jerusalem Mass Transportation Plan began with the construction of the Red Line: an LRT line which runs between Mount Herzl, the Jerusalem City Centre and Pisgat Ze'ev and which opened for service on March 22, 2012.

The Red Line comprises 13.8km of track, 46 fully motorized LRT vehicles, a depot & OCC facility located in French Hill, and 23 stations. At present, the Red Line is serving more than 140,000 passengers a day with the expectation of growth in the coming years. The second operation phase of the Jerusalem Mass Transportation Plan, includes the extension of the southern segment of the Red Line up to the Hadassah Hospital, the extension of the the northern segment up to Neve Yaakov and the construction of a branch from the central segment of the Red Line up to the Givat Ram Campus of the Hebrew University.
The second operation phase includes an additional 7.7km of track, 44 LRT vehicles (10 of which are for service of the first phase), an extension of the existing depot and 13 stations.
JTMT is planning to issue a tender for the design, build, operation, maintenance and finance of the third operation phase of the Jerusalem Mass Transportation Plan. This phase is intended to include the construction of the Green Line which will run from Mount Scopus to Gilo with a branch to the commercial and residential areas of Malha.
The line, which will include 18.3km of track, additional depot & OCC facilities, an estimated 70 LRT vehicles, 33 stations and is expected to add up to 160,000 daily passengers to the J-Net. The tender may include an option to operate all LRT lines under one umbrella as the J-Net.

Green Line – Main Assumptions & Characteristics

  • Experience in complex PPP projects and financial closing processes
  • Experience in construction and operation of at grade LRT lines and LRT Networks
  • Experience in supplying a significant amount of LRT vehicles to LRT projects
  • Experience in construction works in urban environments and interfaces with public authorities
  • Experience in operation and maintenance of LRT networks with hundreds of thousands of passengers per day
  • Experience in operation and maintenance of LRT lines with intersections that include crossing and interface with private and public transportation
  • Experience in coordination and integration of complex LRT projects that include, at the same time, operation of existing lines, construction of new lines and integration of new lines into an existing infrastructure
  • Experience in hand-over of existing LRT lines
  • BASED ON THE RESULTS OF THE RFI PROCESS WE WILL BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE REQUIREMENTS INTENDED TO FORM PART OF THE TENDER TO BE ISSUED TO BIDDERS.
