The new road will expedite travel for Palestinians in the area.
(Communicated by the Civil Administration in Judea and Samaria)
On 11 December 2008 the IDF and the Civil Administration inaugurated a new road connecting Beit Ur al-Foka, Beit Ur al-Tahta, a-Tira, Hirb’t al-Musbah, Beit Lakia and Beit Sira, situated around road no. 443 to the city of Bitunia and Ramallah.
This new road was built by the Israel Ministry of Defense at a cost of NIS 48 million over a period of 12 months. The road is six kilometers long and will serve a population of more than 20,000 Palestinians living in the villages southwest of Ramallah, expediting their travel time throughout the Ramallah area. This road is one of several similar projects financed by the Israel Ministry of Defense and recently completed with the purpose of easing and expediting travel around road no. 443 and the Biddu-Bir Nabala towns.
