The Red Line – Light Train project

Country: Israel

Client: WSP, NTA

Service: Engineering consulting and management

Year: 2017 - 2022

The Red Line will be the ‘backbone’ of the mass transit system, and will pass through the most congested regions of the metropolitan area, serving the greatest number of passengers when compared with future lines to be constructed in the framework of NTA’s transit vision.

The length of the line is 24km, 11km of which is in a tunnel that will be excavated underground, from Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv to past Geha Interchange.

The red line will include 34 stations along its route, with 24 above ground and 10 underground. The distance between above ground stations will be 500 meters. The distance between underground stations will be one kilometer.

As part of the project, 2 main tunnels were mined by 6 TBM machines in parallel, with a total length of 26 km, in addition to 13 connecting tunnels, where the tunnels were carried out below the groundwater level, at a depth of approximately 20 meters above the surface.
