KKL-JNF builds roads in border areas, and other areas where security is a daily problem, allowing residents, tourists and soldiers to move around the area safely and in freedom.
Thanks to these roads, military activity is enhanced, farmers can continue working their fields even in times of tension, children can reach schools without worrying about a stray missile, and the local population can move about with greater freedom. These roads usually become very popular with tourists visiting these areas in quieter times.
KKL-JNF repaired and improved agricultural security roads in the Western Negev following the Operation Cast Lead in 2008, in response to the distress of the communities in the region suffering ongoing artillery barrages and missiles. Work was carried out in a number of communities in the Eshkol, Hof Ashkelon, Sedot Negev and Sha’ar HaNegev regional councils. KKL-JNF has also prepared security roads in Northern communities close to the Lebanese border.
Building roads involves engaging in earthworks, such as compacting roadbeds, drainage and smoothing using fill materials, and asphalt paving.
Agricultural and bypass security roads are joint projects with local government agencies and the ministries of Agriculture and Defense.
