Random, but I just noticed this: the bridges over the M4 approaching to the Prince of Wales Bridge appear to be encased with... fiberglass panels? or some other nonstructural material. The ones carrying the M4 are simple concrete beams for the short spans and steel plate girders for the longer ones. If they're in fact encased, is there a reason other than aesthetics? Britain is fully capable of building similar-looking structures out of exposed concrete or steel. And what's under the encasements?
