It looks like the explosion occurred near where the photo was taken, blown the viaduct girder off the pillar and took down all the vehicles traveling on it, due to speed there are probably several trucks slide down the broken off section too. Like feisibuke said there is at least one car carrier to fall along with its cargo.

That was happiness then.

Interesting, a self-anchored suspension bridge. You don't see too many of those.

Since the configuration shown puts some horizontal stress on the bridge deck, it needs to be somewhat stiff (the main cable 'pulls' on the bridge deck). If you need to make the bridge deck stiff enough to take this force, you might as well make a cable stayed bridge, which is usually cheaper overall.
It is also very sensitive to swaying of the tower pylon putting varying loads onto the deck, thus introducing risk of fatigue stress.
Therefore it is a rare type.
I'm not a bridge engineer though so I don't REALLY know.

This forum about highways is a joke. The thread for Albania has more views than the thread for China. The length of expressways that China builds in one day is probably longer than that Albania builds in one year.

That may be because Albanian forumers are more active than Chinese ones

There are very few active Chinese forumers in this forum, hence there are not as many posts and/or discussion. The same is happening with Germany, where the German thread is maybe 80 - 90% made out of posts by non-German members.
