This is absolutely a case of pot calling the kettle black, @LSLordy
For while there may be a minor breach of safety regs in relation to the bridge, I would draw your attention to the choices of YOUR design.
An occasional invigorating dip in the river is inconsequential compared to the contamination of the entire food supply due to the industrial processing being carried out just yards away!!
‘Fred’, his neighbours and his young family are more likely to die of lead-poisoning induced tumours before worrying about a safety rail.
Get your own house in order and then we’ll discuss the bridge!
