Bridge blown up in ChinaIt took just 6.9 seconds and 620kg of explosives to demolish a 1,156-metre-long Qingliangmen-Hanzhongmen viaduct in Nanjing, in east China's Jiangsu Province.
The demolition took place at around 22:00 on Saturday night in the second stage of demolition as part of the project to upgrade the road network in the western part of the city.
The 14th pier of the Hanzhongmen viaduct was chosen as the starting explosion point, with the demolition conducted from the centre to both sides.
Before the demolition, experts set up 80 stainless-steel-wire-rope absorbers for the first time to avoid damaging nearby Subway Line 2 - located some 10-14 metres below the ground.
According to on-site inspectors, the directional blasting has achieved exactly what the experts had hoped with no reported damages in nearby areas or on-site.
The next stage in the planning will see another local overpass brought down on April 21, according to staff members at the scene.
