Rebuilding in Japan

Amazing, indeed. The picture on the left is dated 3/11. The picture on the right is dated 3/15. Meanwhile, a stretch of highway near my home was repaved in only 18 months. If you can read this post in Japanese, maybe you could give us more details. Link -via reddit

É, a nossa sociedade(humana) pode muito mais do que parece, se nós quiséssemos, não haveria mais fome, nem lamento, só um todo. Nesse dia não seriam apenas estradas pra resolver um problema emergencial e sim constantes atitudes para resolver em definitivo, as questões globais.

The pictures are authentic.

If you look with some atention to detail, will realize that the one at left is a sub-set of the one on the right; namely the photo on the left is on the first quadrant on the one on the right.
The picture on the left is the up corner by the right side of the photo on the right.

It's really amazing, but we can see that the work is not all done, yet, but it's still amazing, specially when in this banana country Brasil we have to wait years for something like that to be done.

Just a note on pot-holes. One of my acquaintances is an ex-cop who responded to several motor vehicle accidents. Somewhere around a third of all his stories involve a pot-hole or cut-out section of pavement. At higher-than-normal speeds, the pot-holes rip the front axle off or split the frame and very often kills anyone in the vehicle as pieces of metal fly through the windshield. In one case, a surgeon racing between surgies at 200KMPH drove over a cut-out of pavement and disintigrated his car and himself. Not to mention normal wear and tear. Watch out for those pot-holes.

@ Dirk - I think what most people are disagreeing over is the image on the right is not the same exact spot as the one on the left. So it appears that they have completed the damaged road.
