The first one looks like bridges you can see over freeways anywhere in the metropolitan area. And the third one looks like it was built with scrapped out materials left over from some construction project.

It seems to be kind of flying under the radar, but it was mentioned in the piece on the Ucare advertising withdrawal, so I went and found it:

I haven't yet listened to the whole thing, but here's a quote from the printed summary:
