According to a report on Globes Online on October 21, the extension would link Binyanei Ha'uma station, which is currently under construction with Mamilla near the Jaffa Gate, and is expected to cost around Shekels 2bn ($US 567m).

The proposals have not yet been formally presented to transport minister Mr Yisrael Katz, and are expected to face opposition from planning authorities in the city, which favour the expansion of the light rail network.
