The Government of Israel ("GoI"), is currently developing the Jerusalem Light Rail Transit Network which is intended to include the Red Line, the Red Line Extensions and the Green Line all as further described herein and indicated on the City map attached hereto as Annex 1 (the "J-Net"). At a later stage, the J-Net may be expanded to include the Blue Line.
In formulating its policy with respect to the public transportation in Jerusalem, and subject to the exercising of the "buy-back" of the Red Line, as described below, the GoI intends that the J-Net will be operated by a single operator.
1) The Red Line –The Red Line is an LRT route which connects Mount Herzl, the Jerusalem City Centre and Pisgat Ze'ev. Pursuant to a tender process for the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the Red Line, in 2002 the GOI entered into a BOT agreement with Citypass Ltd. The Red Line has been used by the public since August 2011.
The Red Line is comprised of 13.8 km of tracks, includes 46 fully motorized 100% low floor vehicles, a depot and an OCC facility located at the French Hill. In addition, there are 23 stops along the Red Line route. To date, the Red Line serves more than 140,000 passengers on a regular day.
A map of the Red Line is attached hereto as Annex A.
In order to implement its policy with respect to the public transportation in Jerusalem, the GoI intends to exercise its contractual right of a "buy-back" of the Red Line pursuant to the Red Line BOT Agreement. Without derogating from the foregoing, and subject to the terms and conditions of the Tender Documents, it is expected that the operation and maintenance of the Red Line will be included in the scope of work of the Successful Bidder under the current Tender Process, following the exercising of the "buy-back" of the Red Line.
It is expected that the Tender Documents will include additional information with respect to the issue described above, including the expected schedule thereof.
2) The Red Line Extensions – During 2013, the Red Line extension routes, were approved by the authorized planning committees, and preparations for the execution thereof have been started along the routes. The Red Line Extensions intend to include the following additional routes:
(i) The Neveh Yaakov route – 2 km of "at grade" tracks, from Pisgat Ze’ev (Kheil ha-Avir) to Neveh Ya'akov along dedicated routes at Moshe Dayan Blvd and Neveh Ya’akov Blvd, including 4 additional stops.
(ii) The Hadassah route - 4.7 km of "at grade" tracks from Arthur Hantke, Henrietta Szold, on a dedicated track-way between Ora Junction and the entrance to the Hadassah hospital campus, and on the south and west parts of the Hadassah ring road, including 8 additional stops. (iii) The Givat Ram route - 1.1 km of "at grade" tracks from the central section of the Red Line intended to line the Hebrew University campus at Givat Ram, including 2 additional stops.
The Red Line extensions are estimated to serve 60,000 additional passengers a day. An expansion of the existing depot at the French Hill is intended to increase the stabling capacity by 28 vehicles and provide for an additional stabling area at the north side of the extension at Neveh Yaakov which will include stabling capacity of 26 vehicles will be required.
