A new bridge being built over the Lianshui River in Loudi city, Central China's Hunan province has fallen apart during construction. The bridge, 426 meters long and 28.5 meters wide, had a total investment of 108 million yuan ($17.5 million) and construction started in June 2009. But on March 12 around 9:40 pm the bridge snapped and the incident is under investigation by the Loudi municipal government. A preliminary probe has revealed that the early removal of scaffolding caused the bridge to break. A more detailed investigation is underway.

Some lessons are hard learned, this is a terrible misfortune.
It can be harder to fix than starting again.

The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.

Better it collapses during construction than after being open. Just redo and do it right.

from a feng shui expert me...they need to redirect the direction to the east a little bit, and reuse the concrete just nothin goes to waste here  {:soso_e113:}{:soso_e128:}{:soso_e120:}
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...
