The occupation government led by Netanyahu continues to plunder the Palestinian lands for the benefit of settlers. In this context, the Israeli Minister of Transportation, Miri Regev, presented a long-term strategic plan for a new transportation network linking the settlements in the occupied West Bank.
The plan includes schemes for the next 20 years, and it includes bypass roads connecting the settlements.
Regev presented the plan to the heads of the settlements in the West Bank and to the heads of the “Civil Administration” of the occupation in the West Bank.
The plan includes new projects, including a new street bearing No. 80, which will contain sections of existing streets that will now be developed and new ones, in addition to new roads to connect between roads 80 and 90. The plan will also include new bypass roads, which will be called “Huwara bypass”, “Beit Ummar bypass” and “Arroub bypass”, in addition to developing and expanding road 55 from road 6 to road 60.
A new road will be built to connect the Qalandia checkpoint to Jerusalem, and the expansion of road 437 in Hizma checkpoint area and road 375 from Tzur Hadassah settlement in Jerusalem to Husan Junction, and the expansion of road 446 between the settlements of Sheilat and Modiin, in addition to the expansion of road 505 between Tabuah and Ariel settlements.
Three weeks later, Regev will approve these detailed plans for these projects.
These projects will be divided into 3 stages: the first is a short-term, which ends in 2025, the other is a medium-term, and ends in 2035, and the last is a long-term, and ends in 2045.
