    Putting screens on the bridge is a good idea, imagine how many people would be standing there watching and blocking the flow of people using the bridge, it would cause a nightmare for an hour or so of people trying to or coming from the ferry pier.

    Agreed, my first thought when I saw the screen was "damn bastards blocking off free views" then realised that a crowd 3-4 deep along that side of the bridge wouldn't be very good.

    Although, they could put up barriers a few feet back from the railing and have officers encouraging traffic to flow. Would be nice for tourists

    Is that normal? I vaguely recall seeing what look like "normal people" on the sidelines of various motor events on TV - it seems pretty churlish to try and block people from entering adjacent buildings to watch for example! (I agree re the footbridge, that's different).

    It's been a while since I was at the Library at City Hall but the view of the excavations (said it was a while) from the lift lobby on the Adult Library floor was not bad. The window will still be there.

    Should have a decent view from the office

    Might set up a beer stand and offer some chairs etc. Given anyway those damn car make no noise, being indoor in a nice cool air con is even better ;-)

    I saw this earlier, you can still see through the material you just cant take good pictures. I don't know just how good it will be at stopping passers by from lingering in the area once the cars are on track.

    I expect they'll have police moving people along. I remember they did something similar on the footbridges during Occupy Central - they remained open but you couldn't stop on them.

    Paul Zimmerman went live on FB to moan about the shielding on the bridge over looking the circuit LOL
