The 47 m long construction is – as recently published pictures and videos show – an architectural marvel and is likely to become an attraction in its own right.

It has 99 steps and an acute angle as the two sides of the canyon that connects it have a difference in elevation of 52 feet.

The architect behind it is the Norwegian Carl-Viggo Holmebakk, who has long enjoyed researching the connections between architecture, technology, infrastructure and nature.
