Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many successful land-bridge projects have been constructed around the world. This fact has led the Israeli government to design a land bridge from Eilat port on the Red Sea coast to the Ashdod Port on the Mediterranean Sea coast. The planned project is expected to realise many benefits and profits. These are grouped into two groups. The first group comprises considerations associated with freight shipment: consolidation, specialisation, and the economic analysis and viability with respect to freight shipment and transshipment. The second group is the social and economic benefits of this project to Israel with respect to connecting the southern periphery with the centre of Israel.
