Completion of road connecting HaZeitim Street, Givat Shmuel to HaSivim Street, Petach Tikva has been delayed. Approved in December 2013, over 7 million shekels were allocated to the project by the Givat Shmuel Municipality and the Ministry of Transportation. Work was supposed to begin in January 2014, and have finished by June. However, construction only began this past August.
According to the Municipality, the project should take 6-8 more months to complete. They blamed the delay solely on the Ministry of Transportation.
