BEIRUT: The Internal Security Forces cautioned motorists Wednesday against using the bridge leading from Dekwaneh and Bourj Hammoud to Ashrafieh.
“The metallic joints in the bridge … have loosened, and there are gaps in parts of the bridge,” a statement from the ISF said.
“This compromises the safety of motorists. The ISF has put signs and blocks to prevent motorists from falling into these gaps, and only one lane is safely open for traffic,” the statement added.
Despite placing the blocks, the ISF asked motorists to “avoid passing through this bridge” until repairs were completed.
