Japan's Bridges: Tagohashi Bridges in Miyagi Prefecture (2)

June 2011 (38.2867 Degrees, 140.9627 Degrees) Tagohashi Bridges
Another view of the Tagohashi Bridges (while standing at the end of the utility bridge). The bents for the utility bridge are single pipe pile extensions with a concrete cap. The bents on the road/foot bridge are concrete pier walls, except the closer bridge has a pipe pile bent at one location! I wonder when the bent was replaced and why?

They really made the gate on the utility bridge lethal to climb over. However, it looks pretty easy to just swing yourself around the gate and onto the deck. I wonder why the utility bridge is freshly painted while the road/foot bridges are rusty?
