Download PDF for this date

Work was started today on the construction of an expressway connecting the center of Tel Aviv with Lydda Airport that would shorten the driving time from here to the airport to about 15 minutes. It now takes more than a half hour to reach the airport. The expressway is expected to be completed within a year.
