According to the article the rear portion of the bridges haven't been used since the incident with the 757 in late March.

The article also notes that the damaged aircraft was repaired and is back in service.

Not much they can do with an engineering/design flaw with the same bridge(s) still there. I'm sure the manufacturer is looking into the failure and is going to implement a proper solution at the proper time, and when they are darn sure it won't fail again. I haven't seen or heard of any new fix for these yet.
