Team of 116 Excavators Demolish Road in Record Time


China always finds the most efficient way to do things, and when they needed to take down an overpass, they made the decision to demolish it in only one night. Crews gathered up 116 excavators all perfectly organized to take down a 24-year-old overpass in one 12 hour night. Granted, that is a lot of excavators, but taking down such a large structure in such a short time provides ample benefits for the organization trouble. In total, the overpass was taken down in 12 hours, and the entire demolition job took 56 hours start to finish. Check out the timelapse in the video above.
