LONDON, (CAIS) -- The Sasanian bridge in Dezful, Khuzestan province is on the verge of collapse and the municipality has installed placards warning the public against using the bridge, Persian service of IRNA reported.


Dezful Mayor Hassan Eradi said that the main pillars of the bridge have been eroded by running water and lack of attention by the authority now is facing a real threat of collapsing. He criticized the city’s Cultural Heritage Office for failing to conduct maintenance works on the ancient structure.


Meanwhile, deputy head of Khuzestan Cultural Heritage Department, Gholam Shojaei, noted that the best thing is to ban the use of the bridge by cars since the structure is unable to withstand heavy pressure.


The Sasanian bridge was constructed in 4th century CE and considered to be one of the oldest bridge in the world.
