Bridge makes people cross

By Simon Round, October 3, 2008

The new Calatravva Bridge in Jerusalem has been controversial since its inception - the main sticking point being whether is should have been built, given its high cost.

However, a new problem has cropped up. Some residents have complained that residents in certain areas near the bridge claim it is possible to look up the skirts of women (and Scottish people) crossing the bridge. This has caused consternation, given the religious traffic in Jerusalem.

Could this now be the world's first bridge with a mechitzah?
