Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today made the following remarks at the dedication ceremony of Highway 22, which bypasses the Haifa suburbs known collectively as the Krayot:
"With the new railroads and highways that we are paving, it is now possible to go from Rosh Hanikra to Eilat, and from Metulla to Tel Aviv and further south. Everyone can live and work anywhere. The north is the new center and this is not only with transportation but also with natural gas, the Kishon Park and more. This is happening throughout the country, in Be'er Sheva, in the Ariel Sharon Park and in other places. We have a wonderful – and now a connected – country."
