I have a photo taken from a plane... I was trying to figure out if this is Prek Tamak Bridge or not? Looks like it and some major details match Google Maps imagery... although some not quite

They probably need to add steel reinforcements under the soil where it is stable and highly unlikely to have an impact. This shouldnt have been a problem in the first place with soil testing in the area. Poor Engineering.

And also noticed that there are water stains (brown colour) running downwards along the column from the bridge beam - meaning there is water leakages & corrosion from above which shouldn't be there in the first place, hahaha !!!

Wow!!! That is scary! I thought they supposed to put some steel or steel reinforce concrete into the soil to create a foundation for the column.

^^ south-east asia has a very big flood zone, cau an tho collapse due to the soil erroding a lot so they the guys cost cutted they didnt expect it to be sensitive. both bridges are from the same river flowing down from china

cau can tho costed US$100M extra, same thing here neglect, "dont worry unlikely" = boom,

building in flood land is needs a lot for consideration
