Construction FailsEpisode 6

The proliferation of heavy, oftentimes overloaded, transport truck traffic in China is having unintended consequences: the collapse of multiple roads and highways. We look at some of the most recent examples of sudden and shocking road collapses and examine the underlying causes.

Next, we examine the crawler crane – the heavyweight champion of the construction industry. When things go wrong with this crane, it’s a catastrophe befitting the machine. And that’s what happened in Varese, Italy when a massive crawler crane installing a portion of a brand-new rail bridge toppled over. Was it the machine or operator failure?
