Highway 4 (Israel)

Highway 4 (כביש 4, Kvish 4) is an Israeli highway that runs along Israel's entire coastal plain of the Mediterranean Sea, its route in the north runs from the Rosh HaNikra border crossing with Lebanon until the Erez Border Crossing with the Gaza Strip. Until the 1990s and the retreat of Israel Defense Forces from most of the Gaza Strip due to the Oslo Accords, Highway 4 continued all the way until Rafah and the Egyptian border. The highway follows in part the route of the ancient Via Maris.

Although the highway is continuous, it is generally considered to be divided into five sections, each with its own nickname, characteristics and speed limit:

  • Northern Coastal Highway (Rosh Hanikra – Haifa)
  • Old Haifa – Tel Aviv Highway (Haifa – Ra'anana). Commonly referred to in Israel as The Old Highway ("הכביש הישן") while Highway 2 is sometimes called The New Highway. This section was originally built by the British to allow Jewish traffic from Tel-Aviv to Haifa to bypass the Arab towns of Qalqilyah and Tulkarm during the 1936-39 violence, making it the first bypass road in the country.
  • Geha Highway, or First President Road (Ra'anana – Azor)
  • Tel Aviv – Ashdod Highway (Azor – Ashdod)
  • Southern Coastal Highway (Ashdod – Erez Crossing)

The Tel Aviv - Ashdod and Geha sections are freeways.
