Chinese workers have stunned the world again with their eye-opening efficiency.
A 500-metre-long (1,640 feet) overpass in the centre of a city has been demolished in just a few hours thanks to the teamwork of 68 diggers.
An amazing video has been circulating online showing the incredible moment the group of machines striking the huge concrete structure in unison.
The Yonghemen overpass was located in Nanchang, southern China’s Jiangxi Province.
It was built 24 years ago and was destroyed last week in order to make way for the city’s second metro line.
As many as 68 diggers were called to the site at around 10pm on August 26 as the demolition began, reported the People’s Daily Online.
The whole process took just a few hours as the diggers lined up side by side and knocked down the bridge at the same time.
Apparently the overpass disappeared so quickly even the local residents were shocked.
