Caesarea-Pardes Hanna Railway Station (Hebrew: תחנת הרכבת קיסריה-פרדס חנה‎, Taḥanat HaRakevet Keisariya-Pardes Ḥana) is an Israel Railways passenger station between the local council Pardes Hanna-Karkur and Caesarea's industrial zone, and serves these towns, their large industrial zones, as well as Or Akiva and other small communities in the area.

Location[edit]

The station is situated on the North-South coastal line and is located to the northwest of Pardes Hanna-Karkur, at the eastern edge of The Northern Caesarea Industries Park (Hebrew: פארק תעשיות קיסריה הצפוני‎).

History[edit]

Caesarea-Pardes Hanna Railway Station was opened on 1 July 2001 as a suburban station on the newly inaugurated Tel AvivBinyamina Suburban Service. The station was constructed to provide a railway link for the area's growing population as well as encourage rail commuting to the industrial zone in the vicinity.

The cost of constructing the station was 7 million NIS (about 1.7 million USD), and was partially funded by the Caesarea Development Corporation.

Design[edit]

The station consists of two side platforms with two parallel rail tracks running between them. The station hall is located on the west platform on the grounds of the industrial park. A pedestrian tunnel connects the two platforms beneath the tracks as well as providing access to the station from the eastern (Pardes Hanna) side of the rail tracks.

The station is unique in its teal coloring, and the designs of the pavilions on the platforms.
