The first obersavtion bridge is not under construction yet, it's a temporary structure to help building the whole aperture.
I thought it was the bridge, but it is not!

Only mega columns on each side are poured with concrete at top.

Is that lashed-together bamboo scaffolding?

This is amazing. I had no idea they would need a temporary structure to build the sides of the hole. Does it provide structural support? I imagine when the top is completed it will act as one large beam and the sides as two large columns.
