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
