A civil engineering survey in Japan shows a recent tanker crash damaged railway tracks on a bridge that leads to a major airport. The accident was caused by a typhoon.
Typhoon Jebi sent powerful gusts across western Japan on Tuesday, sweeping the vessel into the bridge that links the mainland and Kansai International Airport.
The bridge has rail tracks directly under the road. An inspection by a maintenance firm shows part of the tracks has been pushed about 50 centimeters inward, warping them and damaging power cables.
The transport ministry says resuming train service on the bridge will take roughly a month.
The crash also damaged a section of road on the southern side of the bridge. Lanes on the northern side are open to certain types of vehicles, such as limousine buses.
