JNS.orgIsrael’s National Transport Infrastructure Company announced Sunday that an Israeli-German group has beaten a French-Spanish-Israeli group for the tender to construct almost 60 miles of railroad tracks in northern Israel.

The winning bid was submitted by the German company DB BahnBau and a number of Israeli construction companies. The project will cost $230 million. The tender covers infrastructure work on the Jezreel Valley rail line between Haifa and Beit Shean (42 miles, with five train stations) and the Acre-Carmiel line (14 miles, with two train stations and the line to be electrified and double-tracked).

A new rail line in the center of the country connecting Kfar Saba with Herzliya (11 miles) is also being constructed, according to Israel Hayom.

    I am a supervisor with the electrification, at the moment working for Colas rail at Watford Junction in England. I am an Australian that has travelled to work in Europe, but now I want to further my career to work in Isreal.
    I have been to Israel several times in the past 5 years to visit with my fiancée, her sister and family.
    Can you help me with the person that I can contact so that I can move forward with helping build the Israel railway OHLE
