This is how China manages to turn the bus terminal of 30,000 tons in 90 degrees 1

In our era of giant construction giants, it is an equally impressive engineering feat when a building weighing thousands of tons is demolished again. Can the human ingenuity increase by surpassing such triumphs? Yes, it can. For example, if you decide not to simply demolish a building that stands in the way of a construction project, but relocate it in one piece. Watch the video below.

The bus station you see in this video is located in Xiamen, China. The building as a whole weighs 30,000 tons, which makes these scenes even more impressive: this weight corresponds to 170 Boeing 737. Together with a central point, the entire terminal was rotated 90 degrees, which corresponds to a distance of 288 meters in its outermost extension.

The complex got in the way of the planned construction of a station for high-speed trains and, therefore, had to give way. Now, behind this relocation, contractors hold the world record for the “longest arc rotation of a pivoting building”, made possible by hundreds of hydraulic supports mounted on a rail system, as shown in the video.

An impressive technical achievement from which one can only take off his hat, and above all, these are images that one does not see every day.
