New video shows scale of challenge facing workers at Didcot Power Station.
Yesterday marked the eight week anniversary of the tragic collapse at the Didcot A Power Station that left one man dead and three still missing.
Today, Thames Valley Police have released a short video that highlights the sheer scale of the task still facing demolition and recovery crews working at the site.
Accordingt o Thames Valley Police, a large volume of material has been removed from the debris pile as part of the recovery phase. The images show around 20,000 tonnes of material on the ground. Clearance of the debris pile is progressing and up to 40 metres of the overall pile, which is around the length of a football pitch has been cleared so far.
These debris removal works are ongoing seven days a week, from dawn to dusk. Whilst to date everything is progressing to plan, due to the complex nature of the collapse the recovery phase will still take some time.
Of the debris and steel work removed, approximately 250 pieces of differing sizes and weights have been removed for evidence processing.
A look back at the world’s biggest and best equipment exhibition.
By any stretch of the imagination, Bauma 2016 was a show to remember. Almost 600,000 people flocked to the Messe Munchen in Germany to view literally thousands of items of construction and demolition equipment in what is the wrld’s biggest exhibition.
DemolitionNews was lucky enough to be there for a few (far too short) days and – together with our video partners DemoVision – have compiled this highlights reel to either show you what you missed or to remind you what you witnessed:
New high reach excavator on its way to Europe.
Excavator manufacturer Kobelco used Bauma as a test-marketing exercise for its new SK400DLC-9 demolition excavator.
Although the machine was shown on the company’s stand, it is still more than six months away from an official European launch.
However, we do have a sneak preview of the machine:

Seven people hospitalised as building crashes onto sidewalk.
A building collapse at a future Eglinton Crosstown LRT station sent seven people to hospital, three of them with serious injuries, and left shaken residents asking questions about safety as construction continues on the massive infrastructure project.
The building facade and scaffolding on the former House of Chan restaurant, at Eglinton Ave. and Bathurst St., collapsed just before 2:30 p.m. Monday, sending steel and cinder blocks scattered across the street and sidewalk.
The structure was being demolished to make way for the Forest Hill station, one of 25 new stations on the new LRT line slated to open in 2021.

Petition filed with county wants to stop demolition of Vegas hotel and casino.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s legal team is keeping an eye on an initiative petition drive filed with the Clark County registrar of voters attempting to block demolition of the shuttered Riviera hotel-casino.
“At this time, we have not decided on a path to take regarding the petition,” a spokesman for the authority said Friday. “We are still reviewing options with outside counsel, but we will take all actions necessary and are in the process of conducting the due diligence regarding the petition.”
The LVCVA’s legal counsel, Luke Puschnig, told the authority’s board of directors last week of the petition, filed by Henderson resident Kelden Engel, a student at Nevada State College.
The authority acquired the 60-year-old, 23-story property in February 2015 for $191 million, which included $8.5 million in related acquisition costs.
Since buying the property, the authority’s owner representative, Cordell Corp., has conducted a detailed investigation of hazardous materials on the site and how to remove them before imploding the two Riviera towers.
The Cordell investigation determined that there is asbestos within the stucco finish of the Monte Carlo tower. As a result, workers with W.A. Richardson Builders LLC, the company that won the Riviera demolition contract with its $42 million bid, will have to wrap the building in plastic and chisel away the finish and haul the debris away to prevent asbestos particles from becoming airborne during a planned implosion.
Two implosion events are planned in June and August.
