Security Chief Calls to Replace Temple Mount Bridge

reprinted from Arutz 7
1/31/2012, Shevat 7, 5772

Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said that the time has come to replace the Rambam Bridge and ramp used by non-Muslims to access the Temple Mount. Located next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, the wooden bridge was erected in 2004 as a temporary replacement when a rare snow storm ruined the old one.

Aharonovitch said that although the bridge is currently sufficient, it should eventually be replaced. Recent warnings by officials deemed it a fire hazard. Sometimes known as the Mughrabi Bridge, the structure is the only access non-Muslims have to enter the holy site.
