Pedestrian Bridges - Safety, the most important issue

The Maccabiah Games Pedestrian Bridge collapse

  • The time and place - July 1997 at the Maccabiah Games in Israel

  • The bridge - a temporary pedestrian bridge to take contestants across the highly polluted Yarkon River to the games

  • The contractor - a theatre set builder with no experience but a very low price

  • The collapse - the Australian team was crossing the bridge when it collapsed into the river

  • Deaths and injuries - 4 people died and 67 were injured

    The lessons from the tragedy

  • A temporary bridge must be built to the same standards as a permanent structure

  • Designers and Construction Contractors must be experienced and prequalified bridge engineers - no compromise is possible
