I saw an article yesterday claiming that the Nahr el Kalb tunnel is in bad shape and it’s a disaster in the making, and I couldn’t help but remember the hysteria that took place right before the Jal el Dib bridge was removed.

Back then, we all knew that the bridge was in bad shape but all of a sudden, it had to be removed instantly even though there were no reports to back that claim, and look at where we are now! I have no idea how lousy is Nahr el Kalb’s condition but I REALLY HOPE someone does a proper assessment before deciding to close it down or spread fear based on unfounded claims.

I don’t even want to think about traffic if they decide to renovate that tunnel LOL!
