So I guess an actual picture of the 'finished' bridge would be too much to ask for?

And I'm no engineer, but based on the pic of the construction that was included, I believe that would be a swing bridge, not a draw bridge.

Need to watch your UOMs too.

/friend of mine is an engineer who works with China. 30cm is much different than 30 inches.

Many, many years ago, when they were building MARTA train lines in Atlanta, they mis-built two LARGE concrete piers. I remember going by there seeing the piers gradually go up. A couple of weeks later, they are jackhammering the concrete, and I am wondering, "what the fark." Two days later I see a news story, they had built them rotated the wrong way and had to tear them down and start over.

As far as this particular article, yes, I'd like a more clear report on what actually happened

In my best, but still incredibly deficient, pocketninja voice - This is a perfectly excusable error and is probably just the result of northern hemisphere engineers working in the southern hemisphere.  I once installed a toilet upside down for the exact same reason, so I can understand their confusion.

Why don`t they just get some line painter in and paint the line down the middle and screw the cyclists?

Give 'em a break.  The first time you do something, there are bound to be a few little mistakes.
