Temple Mount Ramp in Danger of Collaspe

Jerusalem Engineer: Temple Mount Ramp May Collapse 13:30 Dec 15, '06 / 24 Kislev 5767


A Jerusalem city engineer warned this week that the ramp leading to the main tourist entrance of the Temple Mount is in danger of total collapse.Part of the ramp, which leads to the Mograbi Gate, collapsed in the winter of 2004. A wooden bridge which was built over the ramp after the mishap is now also in danger of falling apart.Within a few months, said engineers from the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, the bridge will become totally unsafe.Plans for a permanent bridge have been stuck in endless red tape for more than two years.
