I don’t know, maybe we should just start a daily photo gallery of crap that’s collapsed or fallen apart around China? This week, the White River Bridge in Beijing’s Huairou district collapsed when a truck weighing approximately 160 tons tried to drive across it.
Built in 1987, the White River Bridge was Beijing’s longest steel arch bridge, and was designed to hold vehicles weighing no more than 55 tons. Thankfully, nobody was injured when 200 meters of public infrastructure collapsed yesterday morning.
Then again, we can at least say that the bridge was functional for more than two days.
