Pantheon Bridge Getting New Safety Measures
Don't be alarmed if you start seeing construction workers on the Pantheon Bridge sooner rather than later. The Bridge isn't getting its foundation fortified. The Bridge isn't going to collapse. It's just that soon your leisurely Sunday strolls across the Bridge will be all the safer.
The Caprica City Bridge and Tunnel Authority is making one of our most majestic landmarks even more safe and sound as it's been commissioned to install a new set of safety railings along the walkways on either side of the Bridge, which will decrease the risk of any pedestrian accidents.
"It's a relatively simple procedure," says Bridge and Tunnel Commissioner Timothy Caldwell. "We don't expect it to interfere with traffic, either vehicular or pedestrian. Our hope is that you don't even notice we're there, and we hope to be in and out of there in a week's time."
There's been some speculation that the project was rushed into approval due to an increase in "jumpers" and attempted suicides on the bridge.
"Nonsense," replies Mr. Caldwell. "This has been something in the works for some time now. We're finally getting to it; it's long overdue. Caprica City needs proactive safety measures now more than ever, and we're here to provide that."
The official start date on the project hasn't been announced, but should commence within a month's time.
