It seems like a lot of slip sliding is happening here in the US.  It will be up to the local people to report bridge collapses because I don't think we'll even hear about these unless it's in our own backyard. 

Recall too that President Obama deliberately brought up the Minnesota bridge collapse, and the Zetas (and only the Zetas!) told us why.

Here's the newest infrastructure collapse with a life lost in the LIRR tunnel collapse that happened last night.  Things are really picking up.

Sandhogs work in the LIRR tunnels beneath Grand Central Terminal in January.

A young sandhog was killed Thursday night in the collapse of a railroad tunnel deep under Park Ave., despite his father’s heroic efforts to save him, a source told The Daily News.

The unidentified victim was working on an LIRR tunnel when a portion caved around 7:30 p.m., according to the source, an LIRR employee who spoke on the condition he would not be named.

The young worker’s father, who was working alongside him, frantically tried to revive his son with CPR as workers rushed him through a network of tunnels to a waiting ambulance at E. 48th St. and Park Ave., the source said.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died, according to the source.

The FDNY could not confirm the collapse and LIRR officials could not be reached immediately for comment.The East Side Access project will connect the LIRR's Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal.

Sandhogs are excavating tunnels about 120 feet beneath Manhattan streets. Work is expected to be completed early next year.

1 in 9 highway bridges in the U.S. are classified as "structurally deficient," requiring significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement.  http://t4america.org/

What made Obama chose the 2007 collapse of the Minneapolis bridge on I-35 as his example of infrastructure needing to be repaired? This was of course a dramatic incident, with the bridge flinging to one side and folding in waves against that side. Clearly there was tension, the Mississippi pulling apart at that point. This is also an incident that got a lot of attention on the Internet for a ZetaTalk prediction come true. We had predicted Mississippi bridges ripping during the New Madrid, and this was the first example of this prediction culminating. Curious minds, entering the date and place into search engines, would arrive at the ZetaTalk predictions. Is this Obama's way of leaking the truth? Yes, and just the start of such maneuvers.

Today I posted that a bridge on I-80 at the Tannersville exit in the Poconos collapsed.  This is an area that has been pulling apart with many gas explosions just recently.

Back in Feb.2011, Parts of Ludford Bridge in Ludlow have fallen in to the River Teme.  As we will be starting to see bridges collapse I thought it best to start a blog with this heading.  I'm sure I will be adding to this as time evolves.  

I've added the proper ZT message regarding the safety of our bridges.  Not only in the US, but worldwide, with severe twisting , crunching, and shaking that the earth is now subjected to on a daily basis  due to a daily worldwide wobble and caused by the ever approaching Planet X, we'll see more bridges crumble and fall.

2 children drown after Laos bridge collapse – state media

Reports say the accident took place while the children were making their daily trek on the wooden suspension bridge across the river to school

BANGKOK, Thailand – Two children died and 3 are missing after more than 50 students fell off a collapsed suspension bridge in northern Laos on their way to school, state-run media reported on Saturday, October 1.

Several ropes supporting the slatted wooden bridge in Luang Prabang province snapped, tipping the children, a teacher and motorcyclist into the Xeng River below, according to the state-run Vientiane Times.

"Two children have died, 52 people have been rescued and 3 children are missing," the newspaper said.

The accident reportedly took place on Friday morning while the children were making their daily trek across the river to school.

The deputy governor of Viengkham district, Saykham Chanthoumma, told the Vientiane Times authorities were searching for the 3 remaining children by boat.

The official said the cables of the bridge, which was built in 2013, had not been checked for over a year.

Local authorities will cover the costs of hospital treatment for those injured, he added.

Ruled by an authoritarian one-party government, landlocked Laos is one of Asia's poorest and least-developed countries.

Infrastructure and medical care in the rural nation is threadbare.

Its resource-rich economy has shot up from a low base in recent years following a flood of foreign investment, but the gains have not been evenly distributed.

Poverty remains rampant and the majority of its 6.8 million people work in agriculture.

BANDARBAN-RANGAMATI ROUTE

Bridge collapse snaps road link

Our Correspondent, Bandarban

Road communications between Bandarban and Rangamati have been cut off following the collapse of a Bailey bridge in Sadar upazila of Bandarban, causing sufferings to thousands of people in the two hill districts.

The bridge in Bakichhara area under Kuhalong union collapsed on Wednesday evening when a sand-laden truck was crossing it, said Sanu Prue Marma, chairman of the union parisahd.

All modes of transport on the Bandarban-Rangamati route have stopped operation since the incident.

The bridge was repaired just one month ago as it was in a dilapidated condition for long, said Ashish Kumar Mukarjee, sub-divisional engineer of Roads and Highways Department (RHD) in Bandarban.

“We have already started our work again following the collapse of the bridge but the repair is not a permanent solution,” he said.

Twenty Bailey bridges out of 109 in the district are in dilapidated state which became risky for long time and it becomes urgent to repair the risky bridges permanently,” the engineer added.

The RHD authorities hoisted red flags on both ends of the collapsed bridge as a warning signal, asking people and drivers of vehicles not to use the bridge.

Bridge Near Rohtang Tunnel Project Collapses Due To Heavy Current In River

A Bailey bridge of Rohtang Tunnel project collapsed today when a truck was passing through it.

Shimla:  A supply bridge for the under construction Rohtang Tunnel project in Himachal Pradesh collapsed due to strong currents in the Chandra river while a truck was crossing it on Monday. The driver was rescued immediately.

"The bridge providing approach to the tunnel at the north portal near Telling village at Sissu in Lahaul and Spiti suddenly collapsed but there was no loss of life," Chief Engineer of Rohtang Project Brigadier D N Bhatt told Press Trust of India.

The truck, which fell into a ditch, would be salvaged and the bridge would be restored in next four-five days, he said.

The truck lying in the middle of collapsed bailey bridge near Rohtang Tunnel project.

Heavy rain and flash floods have caused landslides in the area, causing a lot of damage to the roads in the area.
The 8.8-km long Rohtang Tunnel, under the Rohtang Pass on the Leh-Manali highway, will be one of India's longest traffic tunnels when it is constructed. The Rohtang Pass remains close for six months due to snow; the tunnel will provide round the year access.

UK- M20 bridge collapse: Horror as walkway comes down on top of vehicles on motorway during Bank Holiday getaway

A bridge has collapsed onto vehicles on the M20 motorway during the Bank Holiday getaway.

Stunned witnesses told how they saw the walkway - thought to be for pedestrians - come down on top of lorries and other vehicles.

At least one person is thought to be injured in the horror accident - which happened this afternoon as hundreds of families went away for the Bank Holiday.

Traffic has been brought to a standstill as emergency services raced to the scene to assess the damage.

Chilling video footage from a driver on the other side of the carriageway showed how the bridge appeared to have come crashing down on the rear end of an articulated lorry.

According to reports the bridge collapsed between junctions 3 and 4 on the motorway - close to a turnoff for Sevenoaks in Kent.

Other footage appears to show one large lorry with the length of its trailer sheared off completely.

It is not yet clear how the bridge came crashing down, but other images show groups of people standing outside of their cars watching in disbelief.

Motorists are being warned to expect long delays on both sides of the motorway while emergency crews assess the situation.

Bridge collapse in kangra INDIA due to heavy flood live 12/8/2016

Published on Aug 19, 2016

rains have washed away a bridge in Kandrori area of Nurpur in Kangra district. A charged rivulet Chaunch shattered 10 pillars of the 160m long bridge, a prominent link between Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, INDIA late on Thursday evening. Fortunately there was no loss of life.

A 44-year-old bridge in Himachal Pradesh's Kangra district collapsed on Thursday afternoon due to heavy flow of flood water and rain.

A video, which was captured on a cellphone, shows a large portion of the 160-metre bridge and its pillars collapsing and getting swept away in the heavy current. Officials present at the spot said 76 metres of the bridge on 10 pillars were washed away by flood waters.

The bridge was a direct connection for many villagers of Himachal's Nurpur Tehsil with neighbouring Punjab.

Even though the bridge saw heavy movement, nobody was injured in the collapse. That's because a prompt administration had stopped traffic on the bridge on Wednesday after noticing cracks in the pillars supporting the bridge.

Just 10 days ago, a British-built bridge on the Mumbai-Goa highway had collapsed, weakened by incessant rain. Buses had fallen into the swollen Savitri river; 28 bodies have been recovered so far and 16 people are missing.

The bridge was to be dismantled this December as part of a highway expansion project, said the Maharashtra government on Wednesday. Maharashtra was accused of ignoring a warning from UK that the bridge is too old and dangerous

An alert was issued after officials discovered some cracks on the bridge and the traffic stopped two days before the Kandrori bridge collapsed. The flooded rivulet had smashed a part of the bridge measuring about 76m. While it was a 44-year-old bridge, more bridges connecting this region with Punjab through Pathankot, are more than 110-year-old, and are in a very dangerous shape.

2 dead, 4 trapped in Quezon dike collapse

AUGUST 16, 2016

LUCENA CITY, Quezon: The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) here has confirmed that two workers died when a river dike collapsed in General Nakar town on Sunday.

The dike is a component of the Sumag-Angat trans-basin project.

Four other workers who remained missing were believed trapped in a dike tunnel.

One worker, identified as Salvador Pacling, was rescued on Monday.

Henry Buzar, PDRRMC action officer, identified the fatalities as David Guiagi Jr. and Simion Sig-od.

Guiagi’s body was retrieved on Monday while that of Sig-od was recovered on Tuesday.

Trapped inside the tunnel were Ronald Sanchez, Danny Harnois, Ferdie Sanadan and Zenith Picat.

Rescuers said cries of help had been heard from the tunnel as of Tuesday.

The victims were reportedly working for Cavdeal Int’l., sub-contractor for the dike project of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System.

Initial investigation showed that flashfloods brought about by southwest monsoon (habagat) rains caused the dike along Sumag River in Barangay Umiray to collapse.

Buzar said he had sought immediate assistance from barangay (village) and local DRRMO officials.

The Philippine Army’s 48th Infantry Battalion, Philex Mining Corp. and local teams are helping in the rescue of the missing workers.

Bridge collapses behind Greyhound Bus Depot in Raleigh, NC

A bridge collapses in the 2200 block of Capital Boulevard in Raleigh. 

Friday, August 12, 2016 06:32PM 
RALEIGH (WTVD) -- First responders swarmed a parking lot off of Capital Boulevard on Friday morning after a bridge collapsed.

The crash happened about 9:20 a.m. just behind the Greyhound Bus Depot in the 2200 block of Capital Boulevard.

A man waiting to hop a bus saw the collapse and called 911.

He told a dispatcher, "There's a bridge that literally just collapsed just now ... The whole bridge just broke in half and just dropped."



EMS, Raleigh Police, and a Hazmat team arrived on scene within minutes.

Officials weren't sure whether anybody was below the bridge trapped or seriously injured.


Officials say the bridge has been out of service and there were gates on either ends, but people were still able to get on the bridge.

Responders went down to the creek and canvassed the area; there was cracked wood and crumbled concrete surrounding them.

"It's particularly dangerous work," said Wake County EMS Assistant Chief Jeff Hammerstein. "You don't know what's stable and what isn't. People still have to move through that some and search it and the slightest miscalculation or movement could cause further collapse and put them in harm's way."

Nobody was found injured and all of the first responders made it out safely.

City officials have posted a metal fence around the bridge to further secure the area.
