FAIL: Dekwaneh Bridge Iron Joints And ISF Security Measures

Dekwene-Ashrafieh-Bridge-1

I was looking yesterday for better pictures of the Dekwaneh-Achrafieh bridge dismantled iron joints and I found these. Honestly speaking, what’s even worse than the bridge condition are the safety measures taken there. Two tiny cones and some baskets from a local grocery store are not enough to alert incoming cars.

I think this bridge must be closed down ASAP and fixed in less than 24 hours. The Council for Development and Reconstruction promised to fix the matter in 48 hours 24 hours ago.

Pass along these pictures and tell your friends and family members to drive very slowly and carefully along this road or just avoid it.

Weird Car Crash At Beirut’s Entrance

I missed this huge car crash by 10 minutes luckily today but I couldn’t help but wonder how it happened. Traffic is at its peak at this point which is next to the Forum De Beyrouth so you can’t possibly speed there. Someone also tweeted a picture of one of the cars involved in the crash and it looks like it hit something at high speed.
