HARBIN - The ramp of a multimillion-dollar bridge in northeast China collapsed early Friday morning, sending four trucks falling 30 meters to the ground, killing three people and injuring five.

It is at least the sixth major bridge collapse across the country since July last year, following one in Beijing and another in the eastern city of Hangzhou. Shoddy construction and over-loading have been blamed.

The Yangmingtan Bridge was only opened to traffic in November. With a total length of 15.42 km, spanning the Songhua River in Harbin, the eight-lane bridge was claimed to be the longest in north China.

Local media reported that its construction cost 1.88 billion yuan ($296 million).

The related information:

The bride building mangement:
Urban Development Investment Corporations of Harbin. (UDIC)(哈尔滨城投)
It's half a government and half a company.

the bridge designer
municipal design institute of Harbin(哈尔滨市市政工程设计院)
It's a government-owned company.

The bridge construction builder:
Jiatong construction company of Fujian(福建省交建集团工程有限公司)
It's a government-owned company.

The bridge building quality supervisor:
Baixin Supervisor of Heilongjiang(黑龙江百信建设工程监理有限公司 )
It's a private-owned company.

I guess that the department of local government(质监站) who in charge of construction quality has no enough effective government power to regulate the projects of UDIC.
