Fascinating Time Lapse Video Shows Bridge Building

An incredible bridge building machine known as 'The Iron Monster' extends a huge snaking structure across the Chinese countryside in a captivating video.

In an impressive feat of engineering the machine allows a giant concrete railway bridge to flow out from bustling city suburbs and into the wilderness.

Starting in a muddy quarry, it is seen crossing deep mountainous valleys as it connects the cities of Chengdu and Guizhou. An army of engineers work frantically around the machine, which has the technical name SL900/32, as it makes its way along the bridge.

A giant of mechanical engineering, the machine may seem complicated but it in fact works in a simple way. It picks up rafters or sections of concrete and holds them in place before installing them to span to the next bridge support, already standing.

The link is 1,376 km in length and was constructed to allow for the Chengdu to Guangzhou High-Speed Railway. Designed by the Shijiazhuang Railway Design Institute, the SLJ900 is often used to build aqueducts and rail bridges and was utilised for the construction of a link between Chongqing and Wanzhous, also in China.

Throughout the footage the mechanical colossus wheels itself into place with ease - which is considerably impressive considering it weighs 580 tonnes as well as spanning 300ft long and 24ft wide. It enjoys such fluid movement because of its 64 wheels, which are spread across four sections of 16. Each section can rotate 90 degrees which allows the entire machine to drive sideways. This can prove extremely efficient when building a structure such as the bridge seen in the video.

The high-speed railway bridge will probably not be the last to be built by the SL900/32, as each machine is capable of building 730 spans in its operating lifetime.

Man Survives Leopard Attack

Video has emerged that shows a leopard attacking a man after entering a school.

The incident occurred in Bangalore, India, where the eight-year-old male cat injured six people.

The leopard can be seen launching itself at a man as he attempts to escape by climbing over a fence. He then struggles to fend off the leopard with the animal biting his arm. The man was later treated for minor injuries.

The rescue effort lasted 10 hours before the animal was cornered and eventually tranquilized.

The BBC reported that the animal was then moved to a national park, while the six injured people have been treated for minor injuries. Fortunately no students were in the school at the time of the leopard’s arrival, with no classes being held over the weekend.

India’s leopard population is estimated to be between 12,000 and 14,000. Such incidents become more frequent as residential or urban areas expand into animal habitats.

Funeral Held For Jewish Victim Of NYC Crane Collapse

Mourners gathered at a synagogue on the Upper East Side on Sunday, to pay respects to the man who was killed when a crane came crashing down in TriBeCa on Friday February 5 2016. afternoon.

David Wichs, 38, was killed instantly as he walked along Worth Street. He was headed to his job, working as a financial trader on Wall Street,

The funeral for Wichs was held at the Congregation Kehilath Jerhurun on East 85th Street on Sunday morning.

“The pain right now is unbearable,” Rebecca Guttman, Wich’s widow said. “I want you to know that I will do my best to live for us both.” 

Wichs, a gifted mathematician, was walking to his job as a financial trader on Wall Street when he was struck by the crane.

The collapse happened as the crew was lowering the crane due to high winds. A veteran operator was inside the control cab when it flipped upside down. The crew was trying to lower the arm into the safety position – an upside-down V – right over West Broadway.

Experts plan to study the structure, as well as the crane’s central computer, with hopes of figuring out what went wrong. Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to announce safety improvements to crane operations, in the wake of the crash.
