Wooden protection around piers will be replaced with compact fence of piles driven down into the bedrock, a narrow walkway will be built on top for inspection. Pedestrianisation of the bridge will reduce vibration significantly, greatly prolonging service life of the structure. Deck and mechanics rebuilt with modern materials and modern structural analysis to give lower profile, lighter bridge with similar design and capability to take emergency vehicles in cases of emergencies
