THE MUNICIPALITY of Jerusalem has unveiled plans for a 47 km four-line light rail network, to be built over the next five to 10 years at a cost of around US$800m. The government is reviewing the proposals, and the city hopes to receive approval in time to start construction at the beginning of 1998. The Finance and Transport ministries have been asked to review possible management structures ranging from a state-owned company to a municipal authority or a private company.The population of Jerusalem is expected to grow from 550000 to 900000 by 2010, and much of the growth will be concentrated in residential suburbs well-placed for high-density rail links. With car ownership well below levels found elsewhere in Israel, public transport already handles 450000 passenger trips per day. The city has been looking at metro and light rail options over the past two years, and the current package has been developed by LeMayer International and Hamburg Consult following an earlier study by Parsons Brinckerhoff.The four-line network would serve 72 stations, with short tunnels totalling 6·5 km. One route would be tunnelled under the city centre, whilst the other would run on-street through the main shopping district. Radial routes would serve the residential satellites at Ramot in the northwest, Neve Ya’akov in the northeast, Pisgot Ze’ev in the north, and Gilo in the south. One line would follow the existing Israel Railways alignment, where an intermediate service using lightweight diesel railcars is envisaged. Trains would run at 5min intervals, each comprising two 30m cars with 70% low-floors, carrying 50 seated and 200 standing passengers per car. A fleet of around 100 cars would be required, to be maintained at a depot near French Hill. o
In a 7-5 loss to the Gophers Friday, UW goaltender Alex Rigsby had a rough night, but made up for it with a 25-save shutout in the Badgers\’ 5-0 win the next day.[/media-credit]MINNEAPOLIS – Normally five goals should be enough to win a hockey game.For the Wisconsin women’s hockey team five goals was morethan enough to defeat conference rival Minnesota Saturday afternoon. But fivewas just a bit short Friday night when the Badgers suffered their first loss7-5.Minnesota (6-5-0, 3-5-0 WCHA) gave Wisconsin (9-1-0, 7-1-0WCHA) a huge fight in its first road game of the season, and the Badgers were notgoing to let the Gophers give them two losses on their first road series.Sophomore defenseman Stefanie McKeough scored the winninggoal 11 minutes into the first period, and senior forward Meghan Duggan’sshorthanded goal displayed the Badgers domination over the Gophers Saturdaynight.On the penalty kill, Duggan blocked a shot, picked it up ona breakaway and slipped it past Minnesota goalie Noora R?ty.The UW forwards blocked shots all night, helping out thedefense, and ultimately created more scoring opportunities for themselves. Headcoach Mark Johnson was pleased to see his team doing all the little things towin the game.“That’s all the little things that don’t get on the scoresheet that make a difference,” Johnson said. “When your players are willing todo that, it frustrates the other team a little bit and it just keeps the puck outof your net.”“I love when the forwards block shots,” added sophomore defensemanSaige Pacholok. “It makes our jobs easier as a defense and for thegoalies too. That gets the team riled up too.”Junior forward Hilary Knight also notched two goals on thenight, both of which seemed like impossible shots to make.Both shots came from R?ty’s right side, as Knight shottoward the near post and somehow slipped the puck between the post and R?tywhere an opening seemed non-existent.“I saw that she was on the post and just shot it rightthere,” Knight said. “I think she was anticipating a pass across so I got luckyon that one.”“Coaches always harp on shooting,” Johnson said. “They don’task how they go in, they just ask how many you got. A couple crazy angled shotsbut it was nice to get a couple bounces. It was a good solid effort[Saturday].”While the amount of goals the Badgers scored did not changebetween the two games, freshman goaltender Alex Rigsby’s confidence in goalmade all the difference.Earning her second shut out of the season, Rigsby’sperformance in net looked relaxed and strong.“It was a lot different than [Friday],” Rigsby said.“[Friday] was a rough day for me. This was huge for me to come back and be ableto help my team out and get this great victory over Minnesota and just get ashutout on the way.“I felt a lot different tonight because I figured the worstwas out of the way.”Friday night certainly was a rough night for the squad.The Badgers were in the box three times on the night, butthe Gophers had seven penalties. If it’s any indication how intense the rivalryis between these teams, fists were flying on the ice. That’s not somethinggenerally seen in a women’s hockey game.The pace of the game was higher and everything just seemedmore intense against Minnesota – the toughest team Wisconsin has faced so farthis season.Although Duggan got things started off for the Badgers threeminutes into the first period on a powerplay goal, the Gophers just seemed tobe too much for Rigsby’s first road start scoring three goals in the firstperiod.“You look at the first three goals, two of them were directresults of turnovers at their blue line,” Johnson said of the first period. “Wetalked about eliminating that as much as possible because they’re a goodtransition team. The third goal, our goaltender slips and falls and the girlshoots in the empty net. It was a pretty good period other than that. We playedreally well. We controlled a lot of the tempo and the pace.”Sophomore goaltender Becca Ruegsegger relieved Rigsby forthe rest of the game, but it didn’t go much better.Only seven seconds into the second period, Minnesota’s EmilyWest scored her second goal of the night, putting Minnesota up 4-1. Despitebeing down 4-1, the Badgers had a strong showing in the second period scoringfour goals.Every time Wisconsin scored another goal, Minnesota had aresponse. Fifteen minutes into the second period Minnesota’s Sarah Ericksonslipped the game winning goal between Reugsegger and the near post, sealing aGopher upset despite the two following goals the Badgers scored.“I think we could have scored four or five more in thesecond period,” Johnson said. “We missed a couple of empty nets, but we had alot of momentum going at that time. When you have the momentum like that youwant to capitalize and every time we capitalize and put ourselves in a prettygood position, we stubbed our toe and they came down and kept the lead.”Wisconsin still played a tough game Friday night, but their fivegoals were just not enough compared to Minnesota’s seven.Taking their first loss of the season was rough andemotional, but the Badgers are confident they will be able to fight through anyloss and show they cannot be taken lightly. “It’s been emotional,” Pacholok said. “You have to fightthrough the adversity. That makes good teams, battling through a first loss onthe weekend.”
