Deputy county magistrate of Pingnan: Wan'an Bridge has been burned and rebuilt many times


2022-08-08: [Chinese Article Link]  The Paper Senior Reporter Wang chose Fai Weibo@Chinese News Network On the evening of 6 August, at about 9 p.m., the main cultural heritage conservation unit of the country, the Wanan bridge in the city of Ningdang, Fujian Province, set fire to the bridge. From the footage on the Internet, the fire on the bridge was very intense, and the bridge collapsed and was badly damaged. At 10.45 p.m., the fire was extinguished and no casualties were sustained. The Paper learned that at approximately 9.50 p.m. the Deputy Governor of Shinnan County, Li Changdong, arrived at the site and was involved in the emergency response to the accident. On the afternoon of August 7, Li Jang-Tung received a visit from The Paper to talk about the destruction of Van An Bridge. He said that Van An Bridge was a “valueless treasure” in the value of antiquities, that the locals were memories of growing up, that everyone had a deep feeling with Van An Bridge and that it was particularly sad to know about the fire. Li Jang-Tung explained the importance attached by the county authorities to the establishment of the Emergency Management Unit, headed by the secretary-general and the head of the district governor, to intervene for the first time. As for the cause of the fire, which is under investigation, the findings will be made public as soon as possible, and if the incident is an accident of responsibility, it will be punishable by law and will not be tolerated. According to Li Jang-tung, there are articles from the outside that “the destruction of the palladium bridge, more than 900 years from now” is inaccurate and requires clarification: the Van An bridge was built more than 900 years ago and has since been burned and reconstructed several times, the most recent of which was in 1954, and has been repaired many times since. He explained that there were some excellent cultural heirs in Shinnan, and that the archives of the corridor bridge were relatively complete. With the help of all parties, it was believed that the rehabilitation of the bridge would begin soon. [The following is part of the dialogue] The Paper: We'd like to know some basics about Wanan Bridge. Li Changdong: Van An Bridge is located in the village of Long Bridge in Shinnan County, where it is 98.2 metres long and 4.7 metres wide. Here I would like to clarify that there are articles on the Internet that discuss Van An Bridge that say that “the archaeon bridge for more than 900 years has been destroyed”, which may be a little different from the fact itself. The Paper: Why? Li Jang Tung: The bridge is more than 900 years old. In the process, it has been burned and rebuilt many times. The most recent reconstruction should be 1954. We have been repaired many times since 1954. The Paper: What's the value of the Van An Bridge for the locals? Li Chang-Tung: If it's a national treasure in terms of cultural preservation, it's a memory of our generation for many of our locals. So it's been very sad to say so far. The Paper: Have you been to this bridge many times in your day-to-day work? Li Jang Tung: I'm in charge of land, housing, culture, sports, tourism, and so on. For work reasons, I have some knowledge of Van An Bridge. When did you learn about the fire yesterday? Li Jang Tung: Last night, at about 9.20 p.m., I got a call from the office. The first time I drove to Van An Bridge, 26 km from the city, about 9.50 p.m., and I arrived at the Long Bridge site. The Paper: What did you see when you arrived at the scene? Li Jang-Tung: It was badly burned, and there was no access on the bridge. Our local fire and rescue workers and town officials were doing everything they could to save them. The Paper: What was the mood of seeing such a picture? Li Chang-Tung: Very sad. I saw a lot of local people on the scene, and I'm sure they're in the same mood as me, and it's really hard. The Paper: What did the county do after the fire? This evening, we set up the Emergency Disposal Unit, which is headed by the Secretary-General, the District Governor, who is the first to intervene, and currently has six teams, namely, integrated coordination, on-site control, fire-cause investigation, preservation and restoration of antiquities, and disciplinary supervision, to carry out comprehensive and orderly follow-up disposals. The Papar: The fire has already occurred. What are the specifics to be done? Li Jang Tung: At 8:30 this morning, our county opened a large-scale overhaul of the cultural heritage sites throughout the county, with a planned 14-day period to conduct a large-scale inspection of the site throughout the county. Secondly, we have initiated an internal accountability requirement, and if this is found to be a responsible incident in the investigation, and if this is the result of a staff member's negligence, we will be punished with the utmost severity and impunity. Third, we are also planning to start the repair of our galleries. Although the bridge is burned, the main bridge remains intact, with five or six holes in Van An, of which five are intact. On one side, the head of the bridge was also rescued, and the temple, with its annex, remained intact. In our plans for the preservation of cultural objects, we kept the archives of the gallery bridge fairly intact in previous years. At the same time, we have some excellent cultural heirs in our region, and we hope that in the near future, with all the resources at our disposal, the rehabilitation of the galleries will begin. The Paper: This is an exact repair, isn't it? Yes. The Paper: You're still concerned about the cause of the fire, and there's not much progress yet? Li Chang-Tung: The relevant department is in the process of being investigated and, if it comes to its conclusion, we'll make it available to the media as soon as possible. == sync, corrected by elderman == @elder_man
