Metro, Tel Aviv Metropolin- feasibility study for three line layout

Client: NTA
Project Initiation: 2017
Location: Tel-Aviv metropolitan area
Status: Completed
Program: 140 km of track and 109 stations, depot sites and park & ride lots.
Planning Team: Ari Cohen, Avi Lindenbaum, Sharon (Matar) Arie

The strategic plan for public transportation in the TA metropolitan area was completed in 2016. This plan recommended the creation of three metro lines, and suggested a general route for each.

The feasibility study required the planning team to manage competing interests. On the one hand, they needed to address the needs of the planning that had already been set in motion for the next twenty years (providing optimal service in the heart of the metropolis). On the other hand, they needed to define a framework for long-term development – 30-40 years (a second and a third layer surrounding the metropolis, generating demand for development around the stations).

The study assessed the routes suggested by the strategic plan, suggesting alternative routes and station locations for each. The alternatives were compared using an MCA that included 35 parameters from different domains: urbanism, population, employment, transit, environment, economic benefits, operation, etc.

Completed in early 2019, the results of the feasibility study have provided the principles and guidelines for the metro’s future planning, along with a detailed route that includes the locations of stations and depot sites.
