Shanghai's Bridges: Zhejiang Road Bridge (2)

Another view of the Zhejiang Road Bridge in Shanghai. In yesterday's photo, we saw the bridge was about 60 m long between the quay walls along Suzhou Creek. Although the bridge has very low vertical clearance, it doesn't appear to have been damaged from collisions with ships or from flood debris.

They were working along the quaywall when I visited in October. It looked like they had broken up a concrete wall (or the pavement?). It also looks like they were mixing portland concrete by hand. I wonder if construction is still done largely by hand in China?
