Netivei Israel, formerly the National Roads Company of Israel, is launching a new division dealing with innovation and strategy led by Hila Hadad-Hamalnik, the company announced Monday. The purpose of the new division is to increase the use of technology in the transportation infrastructure in Israel. "Studies and research around the world have shown that using advanced technologies for handling, monitoring, developing, and maintaining infrastructure can lead to a significant change in how the general public experiences and uses transport. Our goal is to ensure that the world-renowned startup nation embeds these principles in its own territory as well," Hadad-Hamalnik said in a statement.
