Massive bridge blast

The Northern part of the Eisern Viaduct in Siegen, Germany has been felled in a controlled blast.

According to reports, 61 kg of explosives was used to bring down the motorway bridge, which was up to 50 metres high and weighed 12,300 tons. The bridge will be replaced by a new building that can cope with the current volume of traffic.

Richard Liesegang GmbH & Co. KG was responsible for the demolition.
