Sichuan China's Bridges: Miao Zi Ping Bridge (3)

July 2008 (31.021 Degrees, 103.544 Degrees) Miao Zi Ping Bridge
Another view of the Miao Zi Ping Bridge. This was part of a massive infrastructure project to provide access between the Sichuan Plain and the Tibetan Plateau. However, the bridges were designed with few seismic details despite crossing one of the most highly seismic regions on the planet. Billions of Yuans (RMB) of infrastructure was destroyed, but the damage was quickly removed and construction continued unabated, usually to the same standards as the original structures.
