There goes the tram, up and over the curved Calatrava Bridge of Strings!
(Finally, a Jerusalem bridge picture for Sunday Bridges meme.)
In a post of mine from three years ago showing the early stages of the bridge construction an engineering maven said, "The Bridge of Strings will be the first train-carrying curved suspension bridge in the world."
You can see the white mast and the cables of the bridge protruding from behind a tall building.
(Lots more pictures of the whole bridge are under my label "Calatrava.")
And look! A brand new bench for future tram passengers.
This tram stop is across the street from the Central Bus Station on Jaffa Street.
We the public were told the light rail would start taking passengers in August, but now that has been delayed again to November.
The reasons, which include a lot of infighting, are explained in the Jerusalem Post.
Well, at least now we have benches to sit on and watch the empty trams glide by as they are being tested.
It's more like our PATIENCE that is being tested.
