Otres 1 Beach Pier

This is our entry in The Daily Post Daily Prompt: Substandard.

This pier on Otres 1 Beach (near Sihanoukville, Cambodia) has seen better days. The concrete surface was reinforced with a strong rebar mesh, but the beach end has broken. Some practical person has reverted to ancient technology to create a rudimentary ladder, although a climber must be cautious to avoid stepping through the pier surface at the top.

The Khmer Times of January 21, 2016, shows a picture of this pier under construction.  The picture is credited as “Supplied;” we certainly hope that this pier has lasted more than one year.
