Transport Examinations

We perform Transport Implications Examinations (TIE) on all scales. The examination is executed in accordance with the Ministry of Transport guidelines, and focuses on all aspects and means of transport. Our emphasis is on the public space and the non motorized transport, including accessibility and safety aspects.

Maariv Tower

In 2017 AMAV executed a transport examination of Maariv Tower, for Israel Land Development Company (Hachsharat HaYishuv). The planned tower, expected to be 42 stories high, is a city-wide datum-point located on a traffic arteries intersection, crossing the red and green lines of the light rail.

The project used an innovative methodology developed by AMAV for examining pedestrian accessibility to the complex, with understanding that the growing number of pedestrians in the surrounding space demands immense attention to foot crossings and sidewalks.

Transport Implications Examinations, Ashdod Umbrella Agreement

The umbrella agreement signed between the Ashdod municipality and the Ministries of Finance and Construction and Housing in 2017 is one of the biggest in Israel, and includes about 40,000 residential units.

AMAV performed a systematic transport examination analyzing the transportation influence of adding residential units and businesses on the transport array in Ashdod. Emphasis was put on the city’s northern area, where an addition of around 12,000 residential units is expected.

The Transport Implications Examination referred to Ashdod’s future transportation needs, while focusing on developing modes of public transport that will allow for public transport priority along the routes exiting the city: B’nei Brith and Herzel avenues, and continuing the priority in the national highways 41 and 4 in order to allow fast accessibility to the core of the Tel Aviv Metropolitan area.

Kiryat Shchakim, Herzliya

Kiryat Shchakim project is located right next to the Herzliya train station, and the plan includes around 1,650 residential units, 200,000 sqm of offices and commerce alongside a transport center for the city. The project was planned by REMI and City-Tech, and the architect is Moshe Zur.

The project is unique in combining multiple and varied modes of transport with a variety of land uses. AMAV performed an examination of the projected influence of building and occupying Kiryat Shchakim on the road network and public transport in the project’s surroundings. We addressed the planned road system and the response given to public transport and non-motorized transport as part of the complex’s plan.

Transport Implications Examinations, Southwest Jerusalem

Southwest Jerusalem includes Kiryat HoYovel, Kiryat Menachem and Ir Ganim neighborhoods. In these neighborhoods there are urban renewal plans that include adding thousands of residential units.

Per the request of the Jerusalem municipality and the Jerusalem Urban Renewal Division, AMAV and the Jerusalem Transportation Master Plan Team performed a transport implications examination of the area. It included transportation analyses of mass transit systems, accessibility, and walkability in the space, and accordingly, formalizing project bundles which will make light rail stations and the public space more accessible to larger parts of the population as part of the urban renewal.

Transport Implications Examinations, Jerusalem Gateway

Given the scope of this plan and its expected influence on the transport system in the area, we were asked by the Jerusalem District Traffic Supervisor to perform a Transport Implications Examination to local outline plan 101-0051490, “The Jerusalem Gateway (Rova Mevo HaIr)”.

The aim of this TIE is estimating the effects this project will have on the transport system around it and formulizing recommendations to lessening these effects, in order to assist policy makers with the process of authorizing the plan.
