Then look up the Mughrabi bridge controversy and find out more about it.

The short story is that the ramp leading to the western (Mughrabi) gate of the Temple Mount was called the Mughrabi ascent. It covered a pile of rubble that collapsed into the women's court of the Western Wall a few years ago. The bridge is a plan of the Israeli Antiquities authority to replace the ramp. 

We will be visiting this area when we go to Jerusalem.
