Cathedral to be moved 250ft

A cathedral in Fuzhou city, China will find a new space after it will be turned around 90 degrees and moved 250ft to create enough space for a new main street. The Cathedral of St Dominic, which was built in 1933, will be moved eastwards, and then south with the help of tracks.

In fact, the builders have already started their work. The 1,500 tonnes building is now three feet above ground and workers are busy in laying concrete tracks and wheels underneath the building. Take a look at the picture above.
