Rapid Response To Road Recovery Was So Amazing In Japan

Japan disaster: reconstruction effort puts town on road to recovery.

The earthquake on 11 March tore apart this stretch of road in Ibaraki prefecture, leaving gaping cracks up to 150 metres long and presenting yet another obstacle to emergency workers travelling north from Tokyo. Just six days later last Thursday, 17 March the road had been transformed. Rapid response to earthquake in Ibaraki prefecture sees long stretch of road rebuilt and an expressway reopened.

I wish Philippine Government has this kind of responses as well. Just today in Edsa there is a huge traffic jam in Cubao area because of road constructions. Tsk tsk!
