via State of the art smart fence to protect future airport, Jordanian border – Israel News – Jerusalem Post

The Eilat Ilan and Assaf Ramon International Airport is expected to handle an estimated two million travelers each year and is set to open in March 2019.

A senior officer in the Defense Ministry and army’s fence-building administration said the fence is based on the model developed for those deployed on the borders of Egypt and in the Golan Heights, but in accordance with the unique topography of the Arava.

Extensive care was put into planning the fence, developed alongside environmental protection authorities in such a way that it would not damage or interfere with the surrounding environment such as water and ecological cross-passages which have been placed along the entire length of the fence to allow for floodwater to flow and animals to pass through.
