Israel to Raise Heights of Pedestrian Bridges to 12 Feet After Accident   

Kol Haolam reports that Israel’s supervisory panel over bridge safety said yesterday it is issuing an order to raise the height of all pedestrian bridges to 12 feet in the wake of the deadly collision outside Bnei Brak on Monday night.
The bridge was brought down when a truck traveling with its crane at a height above the legal limit crashed into the structure, killing the driver.
But Netivei Yisrael rejected charges that the span, known as the Coca-Cola Bridge, had not undergone regular inspection, saying it received a grade of 95 in a recent report.
