Bus Interchange concrete pour

One of the first of Christchurch’s government-backed Anchor Projects to be completed was the new Bus Interchange. Construction on the site was a positive sign of progress at a time when the central city was still perceived by many as a ‘demolition site’.  This video from 23 September 2014, shows the record-breaking concrete pour for the building’s foundation slab. Approx 1,480m3 of concrete was used in the pour which started at 3am and took approximately 9 hours.
