So, how do you test whether a new bridge is strong enough? Well, in Spain they seem to opt for the obvious…
…Just drive 50 trucks over it and see what happens. Thanks to www.ttm.nl, Tachoblog can bring you these two pictures of some 50 trucks travellingt over the new viaduct Contreras in Villa del Gordo Cabriel, near Valencia.
This side shot gives you a better view of both the bridge and just how big that convoy was.
Now, I don’t know about you, but if we were driving one of the trucks, we’d want to know that they were confident that the bridge was strong enough before starting over it!
