A meaningful disclosure was that the bridge's cable wires were "rusting continuously" and weren't exposed to the public in the best possible condition, according to the Investigating Officer (IO) of the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) he also said that the bridge's flooring was the only act achieved, and neither the cables nor the oiling-greasing was finished.
