America used to be able to build megaprojects, not anymore I'm afraid. Oh well, China has ambition and that's why it will surpass America in the next 20 years economically.

Stimulus spending in China versus the US

Thanks for posting these pictures.

The many pictures shown in the various Skyscraper threads plus what I saw in China in May of this year convince me that China's stimulus spending is far more effective than the stimulus spending in the US. About the only result seen in the US is a few re-pavements of highways & little else.

Anyone with other comments?

The difference is that before the recession, China already had detailed plans for more megaprojects and could simply order them to be moved up (e.g. completing the 4X4 high speed rail grid by 2015 instead of 2020). In this case the US has to spend the years on the proposal, design, planning, EA, etc process.

China can take advantage of its massive supply of cheap labour before that dries up.

On a side note, a rainstorm in early July caused sections of the Shijiazhuang - Taiyuan HSR to sink into the mud, some by over 60 cm. This caused emergency repairs and travel delays.

Goes to show that faster isn't always better.

4 workers die at local rail site in crane slam

From: Shanghai Daily
By Dong Zhen and Zha Minjie
2009-8-20

FOUR workers were crushed to death and two others were injured yesterday evening after a 10-ton crane crashed into another crane during a heavy rainstorm at a construction site for the Shanghai-Beijing express rail project in Shanghai's Jiading District.

Firefighters who took part in the rescue said the mishap occurred around 6pm near the intersection of Jinshajiang and Xinghua roads. The four workers were pronounced dead at the scene; the others were rushed to a hospital with non-critical injuries, rescuers said. Colleagues of the victims told Shanghai Daily that there were nearly 300 workers on the project, mostly from Jiangsu Province. There was no official report from authorities explaining what caused the fatal mishap last night, though construction officials said the storm may have played a part.

Witnesses said the mishap involved two gantry-type cranes. During heavy rain and wind, a 13-meter-tall crane slid 20 meters along its tracks, apparently out of control, and crashed into the driver's compartment of a 16-meter-tall crane, where the six workers were sheltering from the storm. The two who were injured managed to escape the major impact. The smaller crane toppled after the crash.

Some workers told Shanghai Daily that construction had not been suspended at the time of the accident, even though the site was being buffeted by the wind. A government team was set up last night to investigate the accident. The construction site was being run by China Communications Construction Third Harbor Engineering Co Ltd.

The 1,318-kilometer Shanghai-Beijing express railway is expected to become the primary rail artery between the capital city and Shanghai, featuring speeds of 350 kilometers per hour. A trip between Shanghai and Beijing will take only about five hours on the future link. The project's first phase is scheduled to open next year. The under-construction Hongqiao Integrated Traffic Hub, connected to Hongqiao Airport, will serve as host station for the express railway as well as for future high-speed railways from Shanghai to Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces.

The Ministry of Railways said earlier that the Shanghai-Beijing line will become the country's first high-speed railway to feature the world's top technologies, services and transportation efficiency. The railway construction will cost about 220.9 billion yuan (US$32.3 billion), becoming the country's biggest investment in a single construction project. The Ministry of Railways said the project must be completed with state-of-the-art technologies and must have "zero quality flaws."

Four workers were killed. The victims were in a crane cab when another crane slammed into it.
