Construction Mistakes


Construction mistakes or errors or goof ups? What ever we call it, it won't change a thing and still these look hilarious.

You really wonder how the engineers and architects who were part of these constructions must have reacted seeing them.

Does anyone have more specific information about that picture of the misaligned bridge, at the top of this article? I tried searching for it but couldn’t find anything.

It's a photoshop job. One, a mistake like this would be discovered LONG before the ends got that close together. Two, isn't strange that there's NO information on this, other than the same old "Survey-scale inaccuracy or positioning errors can lead to costly construction mistakes such as bridge misalignments." No location, no contractor's name, nothing. And why is this image only on (less than) a handful of sites? If this was really a for-real stupid mistake, these guys would have been plastered all over the web.

it is a piece of clip art produced for an article on engineering errors.

anyone thinking it might be true needs to look at the rough exposed edge of concrete and the structure of the bridge. bridges are not constructed this way, for crying out loud. puh-LEEZE people.

the frikkin traffic paint and handrails are complete, for crying out loud. and they are just noticing the error?

the original poster's gullibility is astounding. and chad, please, man. a little more healthy skepticism is a good thing on the web.

Dear Presurfer:
Why do you post fake pictures as real ones? Get a brain.

This is not a construction mistake, this is a result of lateral plate movement during an earthquake. Note the rough concrete edges and the lane striping. Happened in Japan, I believe.

Oh don't be ridiculous. A clean break like that as a result of an earthquake? Nice try, no cigar.

This is not even a photoshop--it is apparently an illustration from the insurance company Zurich American Insurance Company, intended to signify the importance of decision making.
