According to Camardo and Notomista, Maiuri decided to reorganise the entrance to the excavations.
In 1930 this monumental entrance was built, which would contain the ticket office, the toilets, and an office for the guards.
This side, facing onto Corsa Resina, contained a series of niches in which it was envisaged would have contained copies of various statues from Herculaneum, however this was never realised.

The green railings on either side of the roadway provide a view from a bridge over the cryptoporticus of the Palaestra, on the left, and across the Herculaneum site below, on the right.
In 1954, in order to be able to excavate the cryptoporticus, Maiuri decided to construct a bridge, which at the time was considered a very modern and daring reinforced concrete bridge.

Maiuri’s Notebook April 1943.

“Two or three bombs fell at the entrance to the new excavations damaging or destroying the houses between the excavation and the countryside: doors and windows of the entrance demolished; glass in fragments in the excavations, the plaster from the rooms of the Palaestra pulled from the walls as if by a violent earthquake: a partition wall/screen from the “Casa a graticcio” slit: the ancient wooden coverings of the upstairs windows of one of the shops of the Forum, thrown onto the street in pieces: and in fragments, the ancient wooden screen, that by a miracle of preservation, closed one of the alae of the Casa del Bicentenario; and everywhere roofs and sheds demolished.

But Herculaneum has withstood the violence of the blasts by its elasticity and lightness: twenty metres downstream and a single bomb would have destroyed half of the excavations; all three bombs would have reduced the ancient houses, laboriously excavated from the hard vice-like grip of the mud, to a pile of rubble, as those other poor mangled houses along the Corsa di Resina.”
