M8 Footbridge Hillington

Anyone know what is going on with this bridge?  For months they have been working on the approach ramps and the main girder is lying at the side of the motorway, seemingly ready to install, but now they are demolishing the main concrete support columns with jackhammers.  Major miscalculation made???

Edit - Was able to answer my own question thanks to STV, sub-standard concrete used in the foundations, who will be paying for that cock-up
