Unauthorized Mughrabi Bridge construction halted

TEMPLE MOUNT WATCH: PM orders halt to Temple Mount bridge construction (Shlomo Cesana, Times of Israel).
Two weeks ago, construction work began on new bridge connecting Western Wall plaza to Temple Mount's Mughrabi Gate • Work started "without coordination with or approval from the prime minister, and therefore it was stopped," PMO officials say.
It's been a couple of years since the last installment of the Mugrabi (Mughrabi, Moghrabi) Gate Bridge saga. Apparently someone lost patience and took matters into their own hands. But now the status quo of doing nothing has been restored.

Background here with links going back a decade to the embankment collapse that led to the building of the temporary and now unusable bridge.
