Dismantling of the western ramp to the Temple Mount is discussed in these articles by Haaretz and YNetNews (discussed previously on this blog here and here; cf. also here). The new information is that the ramp will be a bridge, crossing from the Jewish Quarter on the Western Hill. There’s also the possibility that the earthen mound would be removed but the ramp not replaced at all. The old news is that work will begin on this any day.
