GHMC Experiments With Implosive Technology Gets 75 Percent Result

GHMC which is focusing on streamlining the construction activity, on Monday tried to use advanced implosive technology to demolish an illegal structure and utterly failed.

Hyderabad: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation utterly failed in utilising advanced technology used in demolishing illegal constructions. The GHMC has been trying to create fear amongst those builders who flout the norms and go ahead with illegal construction. As part of its efforts, the Corporation demolished a five-storey structure which was under construction in the Sunnam Cheruvu buffer zone at Madhapur. A private agency was given the responsibility of demolishing the structures using this technology. However, this experiment was only 75 percent success, said GHMC Mayor Bontu Ram Mohan.

This is the first time that a building was demolished using the implosive method, said officials.

The Mayor warned builders who resort to illegal constructions that stringent action will be taken against them. As this method yielded 75 per cent results, more experiments would be made to use the implosion technology in full scale, he added. This method removes the inconvenience to the neighbours while demolishing the structure, the Mayor said.
