JRS Photos of the Month October 2023

Steel Truss Bridges

David Dibben has shared some photos from his collection of steel truss bridges from his visits to Japan.

In his own words: -

A selection a 3 pictures of bridges from 2015 and 2023. These steel truss bridges seem to to be quite common in Japan. I guess there must be a number of painting teams keeping them in good condition.
