    A broken bridge in the dream means a broken passage and also a disconnect, from the other side. Maybe a side you wanted or never liked vise-versa

  6. Hi,
    I had a dream in the morning in which I was driving a car, by my side there was a small girl about 5-6 year old. Suddenly the road turned into a bridge made of bricks and the bricks were tied together with jute ropes. There were cops who were holding the ropes so that the bridge can stay a little longer and people can cross. There was a bike which fell due to which the bridge collapsed when I turned to see if I could go back from where I have came to that bridge but, there was no road or bridge there it, was all broken and I was stuck in between with some other people and cops.
