Magical: Heritage Building to Be “Transported” 90-meters in Whole in C China

(People's Daily Online)    05:02, March 10, 2016

Photos taken on March 9, 2016 show that a heritage building of over 100 years has been scaffolded for a parallel transport of 90 meters in Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei province.

The foundation of the building has been hollowed and six concrete slideways are built to help with the moving. According to head of the construction team Li Liangliang, the most significant part of the project is the reinforcement of the building, so as to make sure it does not fall apart.

The three-story red building is a cultural relic from China’s Republican era (1912-1949). During that time, merchants in Wuhan decided to raise fund to set up a fire department to protect the area. The building was where the headquarter of the department resided. After 1949, the building was handed over to the Wuhan Public Security Bureau. Now, as land of this area was sold to real estate developers, the heritage building has to be moved out. Parallel transport is the best moving scheme chosen out of several others.
