Ixel Tunnel, Nazareth
Two tunnels that connect two pairs of bridges in the sections between Ixel junction and Nazareth on Road 60. The road section allows traveling on a fast two-lane road between Afula and Nazareth and Nazareth Illit.
The project included:
2 blowers were installed for removing smoke, and we installed lighting, fire detection and public announcement systems, control system for all tunnels, and established a main electricity room that includes an emergency generator and a UPS system that provides emergency backup of all of the systems in the tunnel.
Undeground cables were deployed, as well as cables on the ladders on the tunnels’ ceiling. Cameras, lighting, and a public announcement system were installed on the ladders.
The system is connected to a control room in the tunnel, and to PWD’s main control room.
