It's been built a while, so I'm thinking that like that one in northern Italy it was undergoing repairs?

I think it has been established, that the Mafia had something to do with the concrete and the workforce, in the case of the bridge in Italy... sub standard materials, and sub standard works, plus a few million lire in back handers.

 

Just because the bridge has been there "a while" as you say... does not imply that it was undergoing maintainance... and ... even at the biggest stretch of the imagination... what kind of maintainance program would remove the basic structure to such an extent that it would weaken the bridge....


Can`t see that happening... even in Taiwan...

They have some incredible skyscraper buildings there, and a seriously modern outlook on modern living.. in many cities,

@billnotben 

...and those guys standing in the way trying to protect it!

Good thinking by the fork lift (or whatever it was) driver though, he deserves a nice little bonus.
