One can always get used to traffic in Lebanon but what’s not comprehensible is why the local authorities try to find ways to increase traffic either intentionally or unintentionally.

Opening up more roads is not always a smart way to avoid traffic yet they keep on doing so in Lebanon. The latest genius act was opening up at the end of the maritime road leading to the Forum de Beyrouth both lanes for cars going towards Beirut.

That’s how it was before, and the below picture is how it has become now.

I want to email this to the one responsible of amending this road to become a two-way road but I don’t know whom to address, whether the ministry of works, the municipality or the ISF. Maybe I should email them all along with the pothole that cost me a new tyre. [Link]

PS: The trees and grass in the middle of the road are compliments of Demco industries and are not the local municipality’s work.
