Japan Rebuilt That Huge Sinkhole In TWO DAYS Proving Why It Is The World’s Most Badass Country

Published on 15 November, 2016 at 5:39 pm By

On November 8 a massive sinkhole appeared on a busy intersection in the southern city of Fukuoka in Japan. The size of the sinkhole – 30 meters long, 27 meters wide and is 15 meters deep – not just scared the shit out of the Japanese (aggravating the fear that their country is sinking), it also re-triggered a worldwide concern over man-made destruction of the planet.

But let us for a moment disassociate ourselves from that persistent fear of the obvious and focus on something that shows why Japan can kick the ass of any country in the world.

This was how the site looked like after the November 8 disaster:

Yes, the road is back on for traffic!

Hey, wait! If that is what is making you go wow, know this: They rebuilt that caved-in sinkhole in 2 DAYS. Yup, folks that Japan for you.

Now you must be saying, “Oh, that’s incredible!” But wait till you hear this: the rebuilt road is a insane THIRTY TIMES STRONGER than the road which went into a sinkhole.

Japanese media reports that though the road was ready for the traffic by November 11, the Japanese engineers decided to ensure that everything was rock solid.

By November 13 they restored the entire infrastructure – water pipes, sewerage and gas pipes, foundations of nearby buildings, as well as cables for electricity and internet – which had been destroyed by the sinkhole.

Call it their discipline, their technical mastery, or whatever badass you can associate Japanese to, but they did what no country on earth can boast of.
