Amsterdam today (photo of bridge pre-covid)

This bridge (the Staalmeesters bridge) is now on the point of collapsing with its surrounding quays. Immediately closed to all traffic and that means quite a detour for residents . Soon there will be an emergency bridge for cyclists and pedestrians but good maintenance is a prerequisite to prevent this.   Here you can see the emergency measures taken . Photo made by Thomas Slijper.
