A lot of ***** size envy over here. As if you hadn't construction related accidents in your country. In my country (Spain) 6 workers died a couple of years ago when an u/c viaduct collapsed. Of course in certain countries where they are constructing countless highways, towers, etc, they suffer more accidents due to the crazy amount of projects.

That is AWESOME! I wish things worked that fast in the US. A project like that would take at least 12-14 months here.

Saw on the news yesterday, another viaduct collapsed on one highway during the night between Shanghai and... eee... forgot the other city name. Many people died, because in the dark they couldn't see the collapsed viaduct, so they crashed onto ruins.

Poor quality ? Quantity over quality ? Shock working over precision ?

Link to an online report please, otherwise I'll find this hard to believe.

I lived in Beijing and China builds a lot of things, some of very good quality, specially the "important" ones, like the Airport Highway, beautiful by the way, or poor quality like Xi'an highway (I Don't remember the name)... but most of them look pretty good, by the way in Hangzhou there are lots of constructions and I can say Good Quality, chinese make good things, sometimes they screw, but is the idea we have that everything China does is cheap and low quality... Chinese don't want to kill their own people...

The bridge quality is pretty good. Bridge deck and piers are in perfect order. 5 trucks total weight 400 tons runned on the right side of the bridge, the deck turned over. Overweight of trucks are the popular in China roads.
