No, you said was it OPEN. And yes it was still OPEN they hadn't got it closed yet! Lolololol and it only opened officially on Jan 14th 2014

However that seems a large vessel to be going into the lagoon, so at this point I'm unconvinced - also, do the towers distant in the last shot match St Martin? I dunno anymore....
The large blue ship has the swing bridge span on top of it!
So they had to get it through the opeing bridge into the lagoon, and then the other photo its secured in the middle of the new causeway bridge and then winched the swinging part straight onto the hinge.

Quite an operation.

Ok, Seaduction! Well done! Your turn.
