Last month, the Shura Council demanded to stop the construction of the Jal El Dib bridge temporarily. Today, the Council allowed the construction to resume after it received updated maps, reports, and documents from the Council of Development and Reconstruction. The construction of the bridge was suspended in December after residents, retailers, and a committee from Mar Abda Church complained to the court. The required documents that the Shura Council received shows the environmental impact of the construction.
