Nishinoniya Road Bridge

( See Side View )                    ( See Close Up )

This approach way to the Nishinoniya Bridge collapsed during the earthquake due to permanent large movements of the soft ground. These caused the bridge supports to move apart from each other, so the bridge deck fell down between them.
