UNESCO demands explanation for situation at ancient Iranian water system

The Gargar Bridge is one of 13 parts of the water system, which was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2009.

The Gargar Bridge collapsed as a result of heavy rainfall in early February. Afterward, the bridge was closed to car traffic and the Shushtar Municipality began construction of a temporary bridge in its place near the Mizan Weir.

Cultural heritage experts believe that the temporary bridge has violated the perimeter of the water system structure.

As a result, the Shushtar Municipality announced that the bridge would be removed by March 21, but the date has been postponed until July 22.
