Noting that this bridge should have been taken down since October, let’s hope we don’t have to wait for the bridge to collapse to have it changed and hold Charbel accountable if another tragedy takes place.
The decision has been taken to remove the Jal el-Dib bridge â€œas soon as possibleâ€ in order to avoid a possible â€œdisaster,â€ Interior Minister Marwan Charbel said Tuesday.
Charbel reassured that â€œthere is no need to panic,â€ saying the relevant authorities had taken the â€œnecessary precautions.â€ [Naharnet]
They plan to take it down in 5 days? What do they plan to put in its place? Are they going to install traffic lights on a main highway or completely shutdown highway access to Jel El Dib?
They probably have no idea on what to do. They are just rushing things so that it doesn’t fall off, yet causing a huge traffic by closing the bridge doesn’t seem to concern them.
