The Jerusalem municipality on Wednesday issued a final approval for the re-establishment of the Mugrahbi Bridge, Israel Radio reported.

The bridge will replace the wooden bridge which was built after the rampart collapsed more than six years ago.



The permit to re-build the bridge was given at the request of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, the municipality said.

The bridge will be built along the path which was used for years to enter the Temple Mount.


The Local Planning and Construction Committee approved the construction of the bridge in 2008 and a valid certificate was issued by the District Planning and Construction Committee.

The municipality said that the construction will not use the temporary wooden bridge that was previously built and that it was in fact illegal.
