The refurbishment of Beijing’s Sanyuan Bridge began at 11 pm on November 13th. According to CRI, more than 1,300 tons of new surfacing for the bridge was transported for the construction.
An official said that if conventional construction methods had been used, then traffic would have been affected for at least two months. Instead, for the first time in China, workers tried out a new “integrated replacement method.”
Beijing bridge pulled down and rebuilt in less than 48 hours.
