Reason For the Closure :-

Famous tourist attraction and iconic suspension bridge Laxman jhula was close for traffic and public movements on Friday by the authorities due to safety purpose.
As per the recommendation of the experts that Laxman jhula may be dangerous for public and traffic movements because they found many parts of the bridge may fail or collapse due to heavy traffic and public load.
The experts suggest that Laxman jhula should be close immediately for the public because it may fall any time due to daily traffic and unprecedented rise in pedestrian which will be the reason for bridge fall.
In recent time the team of experts found that towers appears to be leaning towards one side.
