Gush Etzion Deputy Mayor Speaks about Road Safety

Gush Etzion is no longer a sleepy backwoods area. B"H, each of the Gush Etzion communities is growing, which brings more traffic along with that growth. Its main road, Route 60, also services the communities of Hebron, Kiryat Arba and towns south of the Gush.
Moreover, with the popularity of the Rami Levi Supermarket, traffic is even more congested at the Gush Etzion Junction.
Gush Etzion has been the scene of many traffic accidents, and residents are very concerned about further traffic hazards.
Voices spoke to Yair Wolf, Deputy Mayor of Gush Etzion and current Acting Mayor, about traffic problems in the Gush. Here's a video clip in Hebrew about what Yair Wolf said:

Loose English translation: Yair has requested three traffic lights for Route 60:
** Elazar Junction
** Neve Daniel Junction
** Efrat Junction
He has also spoken to police about residents' road safety concerns. Yair encourages everyone to write to the police and the Road Works Department, becuase community involvement will strengthen Gush Etzion's requests for solutions to road dangers.
