Frits, who’s in charge of the work said they’ll be putting on a new handrail, a rail along the bottom, and some metal strapping, all to make the bridge safer and more stable in an earthquake. It should help prevent the side-to-side movement too.

Over the top of the walkway will be plastic netting to provide an anti-slip surface folks can walk on with bare feet.

The bridge will be out of action for a few days while work proceeds.
