We all know that comparisons are alleged to be odious, but compare the projected 5 years that this London Bridge work is scheduled to take, with the time-frame of the repairs after the January 17 1994 Northridge, L.A. Ca., USA earthquake which brought down miles of freeway, overpasses, connector roads etc.
Work commenced at 19.00 hrs. on the day the earthquake occurred, initially to clear debris.
230 days later, September 3 1994, all freeways and overpasses were open.
In November 1994, all connector roads were re-linked up and all the original downed roads were back ready to use.
