Im­plo­sion clo­sure

The Star Late Edition - - METRO WATCH -

THERE will be a num­ber of street clo­sures in the Rose­bank area on Sun­day, when the Times­Me­dia/ Gal­le­ria build­ings will be im­ploded to make way for a new de­vel­op­ment.

Ward coun­cil­lor Tim Tru­luck said the build­ings were bound by Crad­dock/Bier­man and Bath av­enues. The roads around would be locked down from 5.30am.

This is a con­trolled ex­plo­sion and so it is danger­ous, noisy and very dusty, he said. 5.30am – roads are closed. 7am – fi­nal en­trance to or­gan­ised view­ing ar­eas. 7.30am – 30 minute warn­ing. 7.45am – 15 minute warn­ing. 7.55am – 5 minute warn­ing. 7.59am – 1 minute warn­ing. 7.59 and 50 sec­onds – 10 sec­ond count­down. 8am – Blow­down. 8.05am – Ex­plo­sives check and all­clear siren. 8.15am – All clear. 8.30am – Bar­ri­ers open
