Basics of Building Construction
This shouldn't be news, but only is because the LIRR is so corrupt and inefficient that it's a miracle they could do something like this.
0:11 she got confused
In Japan, they finish that in a couple hours
MTA: "Can you fix this bridge in 72 hours?"Union: "I don't know, we can't handle that kind of deadline, our workers might get overworked."Private Company: "In 2 days? You got it."Japan and Singapore: "Tomorrow."
Good , stop hiring italian and irish lazy ass mofos.
If they did the second ave subway at that speed it could be finished in our lifetime
Our state government would take about 3 years to do that job. one year of meetings , another year of sending out mail to everyone to ask if they are getting upset about the bridge. and one year to actually do the job.
Gotta love the unions ruining the system. This should not be news because in Singapore they do this sort of stuff in less than 24 hours.
Is this that one bridge
The 11Foot8 Bridge is not happy about this one bit.
This is what happens when you pay people by the job instead of by the hour.
What about the 11ft 8 bridge?
In China it's hours
not unusual in uk.
MTA is corrupt like Rudy Giuliani.
All it takes is imagination,little time,skill & a lot of money!!!
WATCH DOZENS OF TRUCKS HITTING A LOW BRIDGE! If you want to see a 10 minute video showing several dozen trucks hitting a low bridge, and getting their roofs sheared off, type " 11'8" bridge " " in the search on YouTube. You'll see a bridge in Duram, NC that has claimed the lives of dozens of innocent trucks 🚚!! You'll also see the footage of said trucks passing under and having their tops smashed off!
You guys were learning from the Chinese rail station project.
This is easy to do once you know how
The 1st news lady , well if she shook her head like a chicken and had horns , she could be Nancy Pelosi.
This is common in Japan and China, but celebrated with bewilderment in America.
MTA: replaces bridge in one weekendAlso MTA: can't finish a subway line in 100 years
Is this the same method that caused that Florida pedestrian bridge to fall over?
It literally took a year for my city in Wisconsin to redo a simple bridge.
Sorry， China can replace the bridge in one day
Now, if only they can scale that kind of pacing for subway signal modernization of entire lines. Chicago pulled it off.
The Chinese would have done it in a day…..
Why there’s no barbed wired fence across subway rail ??
In china they fix a highway in 48 hours
In China that's 2 hour job with 100 men at work.
This is not unusual in Europe
America was built on boys working 16 hours a day construction, kind of how Mexicans work today to make our lives easier for a cheaper price
Take notes, NJ Transit.
How dare they copy China. Nothing in America is supposed to happen this quick.
Clever editing. Freeze the video at any point, and you see not ONE group of guys standing around, not one reading the newspaper, and not one butt crack!
Sorry. Japan can finish it in 1 hour.
I am very happy to see these kind of construction efficiency.
Now if they can get I-4 finished like that here in Central Florida. That would be great.
I believe the first lady being interviewed.
Pfft 2 days is so slow by rest-of-the-1st-world standards
Needs more lanes.
Amazing. America is truly is at the forefront in engineering
China would have had that Bridge replaced over night
sheeps bragging about bridge fucking stupid, china and japan made 500 miles bullet train track in no time.
Just make a call to Skanska, and they'll finish it in less than 48 hours.
October SAT had a huge effect on this huh
It's a freaking tiny bridge and it took them one whole weekend? That small project can be completed in just one day in other competent countries like Japan. SMH.
It is a great job for sure. Its a shame, gread and crap workers and even worse planning makes the road work last years. This type of huge project completed safely and done right happens all the time in Europe. Those guys know how to build roads and bridges fast.
Was this the 11-8 bridge ?
Please China replaces huge overpass in 43 hours, not this tiny little thing, and that was in 2015. Did they really called this a modern day marvel or whatever?
I love that in America finishing a small bridge in a weekend is considered major headlines while in other countries they finish entire lines in the same time
Wish they do that for all train lines that fast
Rofl Americans think this is amazing while China builds bridge over tough mountain terrains across the country in no time.
This is what they have been doing in Japan for about 40 years though…
Is that the drunk train?
