Long Description:
EN: At the southern bridgehead of the suspension bridge over the Massa Gorge hangs a driving ban sign, which points to the south. It is therefore forbidden to move his vehicle on the approximately five meters of boulders, after which it goes almost vertically about eighty meters to the bottom of the gorge. That would be too dangerous, I understand that.

What I understand less is how someone should manage to get a vehicle here. The access routes on both sides of the bridge contain passages that even a seasoned mountain biker can not overcome, not to mention other vehicles.

DE: Am südlichen Brückenkopf der Hängebrücke über die Massaschlucht hängt ein Fahrverbotsschild, das gegen Süden zeigt. Es ist also verboten, sein Fahrzeug auf den rund fünf Metern Geröll zu bewegen, nach denen es fast senkrecht rund achtzig Meter in die Tiefe geht. Das wäre wirklich zu gefährlich, das verstehe ich schon.

Was ich weniger verstehe, ist, wie es jemand schaffen sollte, ein Fahrzeug hierhin zu bringen. Die Zugänge an beiden Seiten der Brücke enthalten Passagen, die auch ein geübter Mountainbiker nicht überwinden kann, von anderen Fahrzeugen gar nicht zu reden.
