Jerusalem Light Rail Depot 25
The Jerusalem Light Rail Project includes the construction
of three railway stabling and maintenance centers.
Depot 25 is a unique project with an innovative concept, the first of its kind in Israel and abroad. Thanks to its size and location, it considered as a groundbreaking on a global scope.
Depot 25 is located on a huge plot, covering an area of approximately 24 dunams at the entrance to Jerusalem (near the government center) in an unprecedented concept. The project required a modern and innovative design that allowed a huge area for a railway stable, maintenance and storage space on two basement floors located one above the other.

The Shapir Group built the Neve Yaakov Depot on a skeleton structure (built by the state in the past) and carried out finishing works and the installation of tracks and railway systems. The Neve Yaakov Depot serves as a maintenance and stabling workshop for trains at the northernmost point of the Red Line.
