An overpass in China was destroyed with precision and efficiency last week.
The staggering 116 bulldozers were lined up in two rows to demolish a 1,640-foot, two-lane overpass in the city of Nanchang.
CCTV, China’s state broadcast network, reports the effort began at 10:30 p.m. Friday and was done by the end of the night. From there, the removal process and the remainder of the demolition only took 56 hours, somehow having the bridge ready by Monday morning.
The destruction took place in order to make way for a new subway system and the overpass being too narrow to provide for the increase in traffic.
