Japanese road repaired only in SIX days (amazing engineering)
#1
The Japanese road repaired SIX days after it was destroyed by quake

Due to the extensive damage in Japan caused by the massive earthquake and resultant tsunami on March 11, many have questioned if the island nation can recover in a year, much less a few months. If the swiftness with which the Japanese can repair roads is any indication, we wouldn't bet against the country cleaning up this catastrophe in short order.

As a result of the quake, a 150-meter section of the Great Kanto Highway in Naka was absolutely obliterated, with massive chasms running right through the middle of the road. Work crews at the NEXCO road repair company sprang into action on March 17, working at a fevered pitch to help get their country on the road to recovery, literally. Amazingly, after only six days of labor, the road is silky smooth and ready for travel. Look at the the before and after photos above to see just how amazing this feat is.

Given the fact that road crews in the U.S. can spend three or more months repairing a single lane of concrete, only to leave the orange barrels on the road for another two weeks, we're blown away by this feat of engineering. Simply amazing.

When there is a radiation, nobody wants to spend months at that place, so they must work quick. :dash2:

Strange, nobody uses that highway anymore? Even walking people are missing. :JC_shakehead:

it really is amazing in six days they can fix the road,
I guess it is important for the road to get fix for rebuilding or building what's left after the quake.

Yes it's a amazing work. But, what I wonder is how they did it in six days. What methodologies/technologies they used?

I'm not sure it's the same location as the right side of the road is different between the two figure or different time of picture taking. But if it's true that would be one hell of a job.
