Margaret Bridge Closed To Traffic Due To False Bomb Alert

By Robert Velkey // 2016.09.30.

On the morning of the 29th of September, traffic was stopped each side of the Margaret Bridge and the arch was closed due to an unattended bag spotted on the bridge, the news website reported.


An explosives expert arriving to the scene examined the suspected object and fortunately  did not findany dangerous substance in the package. Following the security process, the bridge was reopened to traffic

Since the Saturday night bomb attack on a main thoroughfare in central Budapest, police have been alerted almost every day to a suspicious package spotted somewhere in the city; however, all of these have proven false so far.
