After many efforts by Beit Shemesh Mayor Dr. Aliza Bloch and Deputy Mayor Rabbi Shmuel Greenberg, they inaugurated the new park & ride stations – Next week, the new train station park & ride will open with 120 parking spaces for the train’s passengers.
As part of the work to expand the service in all areas of public transport for the benefit of the residents of Beit Shemesh, intensive work took place over two years towards the completion of the parking lot. The parking lot will open next week and will join the adjacent parking lot, which opened 18 months ago with 55 parking spots, with a total of 175 parking spaces.
Officials explained this is another milestone towards relieving commuter accessibility and improving public transportation in the city of Beit Shemesh, thanks to Rabbi Shmuel Greenberg, who is credited with pushing the project along with Shalom Edri, as they worked with the Ministry of Transport and the Railways Administration.
Deputy Mayor Greenberg said that he was pleased to applaud the completion of the project and that it was a great satisfaction for him on this day when the parking lot was inaugurated, as they had to navigate many potholes towards obtaining the budget from the Israel Railways and at all stages of planning and execution.
Greenberg thanked the mayor for her extensive assistance along the way, to the Ministry of Transport and Railways, to the engineering and transportation and transportation departments, and to Mr. Shalom Edri, who assisted in dealing with the Israel Railways.
