Anyone know what the deal is with the exposed rings of the new bridge? Has the exposed element been simplified, removed from public access, or what's changed, exactly? I know we spoke at length about the vulnerability of the original design.

^ I guess someone realized that a walkway in the centre axis would prevent the bridge span from being lifted fully. Imagine if they hadn't have caught that one!

Ever since folks have been pitching tents in strange places that has put the kibosh on access to the delicate gear rings.

That fantasy access was only a selling point.
