The bridge is also known as the "Reading Bridge"
Note the line: "In 2001, the bridge was rehabilitated and qualified for pedestrians passage by Atarim Ltd. for the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Jaffa" where the word "municipality" contains a misspelling.

Wauchope Bridge was established in 1938 by the Israel Electric Company for the operation of the Reading power station, named after the British High Commissioner Sir Arthur Wauchope.
The cornerstone scroll reads: "The bridge will be an important factor for the expansion of Tel Aviv on both sides of the river. The bridge will extend Tel Avivs borders northward to the Yarkon River, and the desert dunes will soon become a flourishing settlement." - Hope came true.
The bridge was closed to pedestrians in 1995 due to its precarious condition.
In 2001, the bridge was rehabilitated and qualified for pedestrian crossing by Atarim Ltd. for the Tel-Aviv Municipality
