It looks like there are traffic signals at each end. Like a construction zone.

That's a tough pic to find more info about alright.
Bruce is offering a substantial prize for whoever locates it.

This page says that it is National Highway 305 in Japan. There are a couple of other pictures too. I can't vouch for the accuracy of this.

Great find.
The highway is in Japan, the discussion in Chinese.
Among other things, one caption says:
"The Japanese always won't let everyone down! When they encounter problems, they will not choose to escape. Instead, they will actively find ways to solve the problem. This makes people all over the world want to learn from them!"

I can't get over the idea that about day with a D8 (or Kubota equivalent) would take care of that puppy.
A new slide is always possible, but I don't think that trestle would handle it all that well.

Looking at this picture from Rhianne's link...

...it looks like they have some stabilization to do but I doubt a secondary or even tertiary slide would threaten the trestle.

No, that metal was ripped out, not pushed in.

As slides go, that is a 1 or 2 on a scale of 10. Maybe 200 feet across on a mild slope.
There must be (or have been) some compelling reason to build that dramatic overkill of a pier to solve a minor problem.
