A really tall bridge:
Japan to construct highest bridge in AJK
MUZAFFARABAD, June 23 (Online): Japan, as an accolade, will construct earthquake proof world highest bridge in the world in AJK.
The 1km long and 500km high bridge, RCC Chattar-Nalochi, would be constructed over River Jehlum at Muzaffarabad, capital of Azad Jammu Kashmir (AJK). A 4 Kilometre long earthquake proof road would also be constructed with the bridge. A Japanese firm Jaica, which earlier designed geological report and master plan for Muzaffarabad as a bequest, would construct and manage the task.
After construction of this 500km tall structure, Japan will dominate the "drive up and kick it out of the bed of the pickup" satellite launch business.
Seriously, even without the typo, why is Japan doing this? Does it really want to build a) a juicy target for Muslim extremists to blow up (Future Headline: "Anti-Islamabad extremists destroy world's tallest bridge")and/or b) the means by which the Pakistani military's heavy brigades gain greater access to Azad Jammu-Kashmir--i.e. India's backside?
Yes, I know. I know. It is to help the earthquake victims...but that is not the way it will end up being used or abused.
