The posts will now be extended along the entire length of the bridge, between the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Boulevard de Lucerne, it said.

The announcement garnered some attention on social media, with some saying the posts were a good first step but wondered if the NCC would come up with a more permanent solution.

The NCC said it is still in discussions with the supplier about the cost of the bollards.
