    Police building implosion

    Who's going to watch this Christchurch cbd may 30th8am .? I took my daughter to the news talk zb implosion and it was one of the most spectacular things I've seen . As for this ( police building) and the zb building they are saying there is " "nothing to see here " ! Trick . But there is and I'd recommend it . Ear plugs and maybe dust mask ( dust wasn't a problem last one ) . Lock your car as every crim that's ever been banged up in the cop shop ,will be there to cheer the building down I'm thinking .

    Was thinking it would be good to mooch along for a squizz. The Police building is a tad bigger than the ZB one too.

    Missed that one unfortunately. Wont miss the next one, always wanted to see one but they never used to do them in this country. Maybe need to get Little Becky to do some organising.

    I'll be there with my family, is a bit odd though, whilst they have a traffic management plan approved for the demo prep, there's currently nothing in place for the demo itself - will be interesting to see if they do a last minute date change.

    Might take our little BBQ and have a cooked brekkie while we wait :-)

    Surprised they haven't auctioned the right to push the button.

    How many nefarious characters would bid to be able to legally blow up a main police station?

    Hereford Street was my genesis in NZ, lived at the YMCA down the road for my first 3 months in the country.

    WARNING !!!!!!!!!!!!. Was talking to a person in the know . (And good reason he would) . He tells me don't go near it . It was full of Aspestos . And yes it's been removed , but he believes it can never be completely removed from all the nooks and crannys .
    Make of this what you will , personally I will be viewing from afar and upwind if at all ! . Sorry to be negative but I started this thread so It would not sit well with me , knowing this .

    Any blasting is good fun but I prefer mining style, loud and messy
