Can anyone tell me if the suspension bridge is now repaired?

Last year some people were still walking down and across the river from Matera even thou it was blocked off!

It is still blocked off (or was at the beginning of July when we visited) but looking from the road above it is clear there are worn tracks down to the bridge on both sides. We concluded that people were probably crossing the river using the rocks as stepping stones even though it is officially closed. The other possiblity is that it was just blocked during the period of the festival dela Bruna which was the period we visited but the fencing didn't look temporary.

Thank you for your reply.

We have just return and found that people were just ignoring the closed signs and climbing over the barriers to walk down and as you said using the rocks to cross.
