MK Miri Regev: 'Writing is on the wall' for Temple Mount bridge collapse
The Mughrabi Bridge was originally built as a temporary structure and despite a safety warning issued in 2011, has remained in operation since

Urgent construction work must be carried out on Mughrabi Bridge, which connects the Western Wall to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City, Likud MK Miri Regev said in a proposal she submitted to the Knesset on Sunday. The Mughrabi Bridge is a wooden structure originally built as a temporary crossing after the earthen ramp, which had previously allowed access to the Temple Mount for non-Muslim visitors, collapsed in 2004. The bridge was constructed in 2007 and was intended to remain in place for several months until a more permanent solution was built. Due to claims from the Wakf Islamic religious trust, instituted by Jordan after the War of Independence, that Israel was trying to destabilize the Temple Mount, a more permanent solution was never found, and the wooden bridge remained in place.

Pretty sad state of affairs. You would think that Israel would go ahead with the work before someone gets hurt. But, it seems the Arabs still have control of the city more so than Israel.
