RCC ABUTMENT  OF THE BRIDGE . WEEP HOLES ARE ALSO SEEN IN THE PICTURES. WEEP HOLES ARE PROVIDED SO AS TO DRAIN OFF THE RAIN WATER ACCUMULATED ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RETAINING WALL. THIS HELPS REDUCE THE SUB SOIL WATER PRESSURE ON THE RETAINING WALL.

RCC PEDESTALS OVER THE PIERS .YOU CAN ALSO IMAGINE THE FIXED STEEL BEARINGS  BETWEEN THE LOWER PORTION OF THE BRIDGE GIRDER AND THE PEDESTALS. BEARINGS ALLOW FOR ANY LATERAL MICRO MOVEMENT OF THE BRIDGE DUE TO THE THERMAL EXPANSION / CONTRACTION.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL GABION WALL ON THE RIVER BANKS. THE BASIC PURPOSE OF THIS GABION WALL IS TO RETAIN THE BANKS IN POSITION DURING FLOODS. THE GABION WALL IS AN ECONOMICAL OPTION FOR THE RCC RETAINING WALLS. THESE ARE RUBBLES OR BOULDERS PACKAGED IN A CHAIN LINK BOX  OF SIZE 1M X 1M X 1M AND ARE STACKED ONE ABOVE THE OTHER.
