Two buildings brought down in Mumbai in 2.5 seconds

Two five-storeyed buildings were demolished in Mumbai in 2.5 seconds, through controlled multiple- implosions.

Mumbai, May 13 : Two five-storeyed buildings were demolished in Mumbai in 2.5 seconds, through controlled multiple- implosions.

Hundreds of residents, reporters and curious onlookers looked on as the buildings were brought down on Saturday evening.

The controlled implosions were carried out on the 30-year old buildings after they were declared unsafe. They were located in the D.N. Nagar Cooperative Housing Society in the Andheri (West) locality.

The implosion technique prevents damage to neighbouring structures.

"The basic idea behind employing a new technique was to help relocate 480 people living in these buildings. The 2.5 second demolitions mean rebuilding can start fast, and we can move back into our homes faster," said Rajesh, a resident.

Two more buildings in the society are to be demolished shortly. New structures will come up at the site in a few years.
