The Sylvan Adams Commuter Path Network is inaugurated
The Sylvan Adams Commuter Path was recently inaugurated in a dedication ceremony in Ganei Yehoshua. The path was officially opened by Mayor Ron Huldai, donor Sylvan Adams, representatives from KKL-JNF Canada, which also contributed to the project, and riders from the Israel Cycling Academy.
The Commuter Path connects Tel Aviv with the surrounding cities of Holon, Bat Yam, Ramat Gan and Bnei Brak in order to enable more people to commute to work by bicycle quickly and safely, and to relieve traffic congestion.
The Commuter Path spans a total of 110 kilometers and includes new paths as well as the upgrade of existing infrastructure to serve both cyclists and pedestrians. This adds to the existing 140 kilometers of bicycle lanes Tel Aviv-Yafo.
Mayor Huldai described Sylvan Adams as a leader “who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”, commending his vision to make Tel Aviv-Yafo the Amsterdam of the Middle East.
