Destruction Alert: Halevor Bridge

CHW has documented the destruction of the 1835 Halevor Bridge, which spanned the Ishkhanaget/Quruçay River, 2km southwest of Böyük Tağlar/Mets Tagher. We have been concerned about this bridge since last summer. It was clearly visible in an Oct. 2021 satellite image.

But the bridge was no longer discernable by July 2022. In CHW’s monitoring report #4, we provisionally designated it as damaged. April 2023 imagery now shows that the bridge was destroyed during roadwork. The inscription’s translation & other info here:
