Judea and Samaria checkpoint expansion plan approved

Defense Minister Yoav Galant and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich approved a plan to expand five checkpoints in Judea and Samaria to reduce traffic congestion and ease traffic.

Within the framework of the plan, for the implementation of which several hundred million shekels have been allocated, the Rantis, Hotse Shomron, Eliyahu, Reyhan and Teenim checkpoints will be expanded.

Among other things, three traffic lanes will be added at the Hotse Shomron checkpoint and the number of inspectors will be increased. The total period of work is two years, but the first additional lane will start working in six months. One traffic lane will be added at the Rantis checkpoint by the end of the year, and the same work at the Teenim checkpoint should be completed in six months.

The work to improve the Reyhan checkpoint, including adding parking lots, improving traffic lanes, etc., should be completed within two years. At the Eliyahu checkpoint, among other things, the pedestrian inspection area will be expanded.
