Transportation Ministry head incensed over cessation of Shabbat train work

After the political dispute over whether Israel Railways could conduct track upgrades on Shabbat led to the closure of critical train routes on Saturday night and Sunday, the Transportation Ministry stressed that such work has already been occurring for years. 

"Professionally, I am surprised that the entire country today needs to be a tailspin, even though nothing changed in our work for years," said Transportation Ministry director-general Keren Terner. "It hurts to see this madness, which damages the public."
