Re: Number 1 Westminster Bridge - Demolition

Todays action from the top of a 211 bus. I've been working out of town these past few days but normal service will now resume.

What's left still looks very do-able to me...

Re: Number 1 Westminster Bridge - Demolition

This demolition is becoming rather addictive! Watched for over an hour this morning as the nibbler worked its way along pipework on the roof. Then pulled a metal tank from the roof.

The first of the pipes come down:

A water or air conditioning tank is revealed:

and is soon on the edge of the abyss:

The jaws of the nibbler struggled to get hold of the tank but once they got a got a grip it soon collapsed and was dragged off the roof.

Watch the vid (which photobucket has compressed the arse off) Sorry for camera shake but Spielberg I aint ;)

BTW this site is completely flat as of last month. There was a digger sat on a pile of rubble and that was it.
