If you can't read road signs

Post by Ace2Ace » Aug Tue 24, 2021 10:28 am

Sorry if one can't read road signs, don't go to China. You'll have fun getting lost. Make sure you carry some snacks, Sekasi. lol lol lol

Such a road will never be built here. We got money to build weapons, but our roads are like 17th century projects, compared to Chinese roads. No major road infrastructure in the past 60, 100 years???. No High Speed trains... Even the airport in Singapore beats New York by miles. Our tax money only builds weapons. Too sad.

My lst impression seeing this video is that elevated highway configuration is a 9.1 tremor disaster and, looking up earthquakes for that nation, every province in China has experienced such an event. Hope it doesn't happen just to prove a point, tho'...... :wink:

All those new road constructions in China and Japan take earthquake into consideration.
Japan's been building elevated High Speed train rails this past decade. They figured out how to tame the earthquake. :) Otherwise, they'd stop building those rails.

Well, there is a response...... You can always rebuild after a quake event, but they are not impervious to such....

There is nothing built by Man that Mother Nature can't dismiss.....:)

Dude, when I first glanced at it, I thought it was a roller coaster. This is what your city Chicago needs.

I bet such a road would be built if Chicago was in China. It seems like China finds the money to build anything: roads, High Speed trains, brand new cities, etc...
