200 Diggers Working Together to Demolish Overpass

In China, buildings and structures can be knocked down in the blink of an eye - no matter how big they are.

A major overpass has been demolished in just eight hours after a local government dispatched more than 200 diggers to work together on the site

Demolition of the Longwangmiao Overpass in Nanchang reportedly began at around 9pm and was completed by 5am the next morning.

Amazing footage has emerged showing hundreds of excavators working together in the city centre to pull down the four-lane flyover, which measured 589 metres long (1,932 feet).

The structure was bulldozed to make way for a new six-lane motorway,

In the past, it could take months to demolish a bridge like this.

However since last year, the Nanchang authority has started using dozens - if not hundreds - of diggers on big demolition projects to speed up the process.
