Looks like they started to build the steel structure for the membrane facade of the Green Point 2010 Football World Cup Stadium

The façade (Contract was won by Hightex) totaling some 30,000 square metres provides one of the significant architectural features of the Green Point stadium

The façade a membrane which will allow natural light shine through,completely wraps the whole perimeter of the stadium and is supported from some sixty vertical trusses with a series of horizontal fins within the individual membrane fields.

The red safety netting must be almeighty strong

They seem to have faith in it

click photos to enlarge

I noticed the red crane inside the stadium was still working at one AM last night
