Japan

I saw this on the interwebs so thought I would share. The time between the 2 pictures is 6 days. You have to hand it to the Japanese they really do know how to work.

    They are obviously doing it wrong. Barrier it off for 6 months all the time carrying out health and safety checks. That's how you keep the public sector in jobs you know.

    Was shown on the BBC which aides its authenticity I suppose! Also the verge in the before pic is grass and the after is concrete.

    Plus in the first pic there is only 1 guys looking at the hole. To do a proper job you need 3 guys looking down the hole then another 2 guys with clipboards watching each of those guys. Obviously in the back ground there needed to be 10 guys have a tea break :)
     
    Sort it out Japan!
     
    If those before and aftre pics are correct the thats amazing. Part of me doubts it tbh.

    Fixed for you mate
     
    There does need to be a rebellion against the needless coning off of motorways - you trundle along at 50mph because of the damn cameras, and the only 'hazard' is the 3 miles of cones they've stuck alongside the road...
     
    Awesome efficiency, hats off to them. Like when I was in china, they were building a new bullet train track from shanghai to beijing. They were completing 1 MILE a day... crazy.

    Fake.  The second photo was taken quite a long time before the first.  Just look at the trees on the left hand side.  Unless someone in the few days after the quake found time for a bit of pruning, theres a year or two worth of growth there.
     
    And of course if it was true, there would be photos of the work being done.

    Or they removed that section of trees while doing the works? Looks like it's been concreted over.
    Also no kerb stones in the after picture.

    trees look the exact same size to me.
     
    and, if you look at the tarmac, in the first picture, there is a strip between the path and the road, which isnt there in the second photo, the tarmac runs straight into the path.
     
    they look the right way round to me, just maybe they arent from this tsunami.

    The deciduous trees on the left hand side are much denser in the first photo.

    i dont agree.  compare it to the cross member on the pylon, its almost exactly the same, allowing a tiny difference for camera angle.  it even has the same couple of protruding branches

    Trees look identical to me, kerb is very different, raised vs not raised, light vs dark. Could be real IMO, guess we'll find out soon enough!
