Engineers in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen rotated a bus terminal 90 degrees " without dismantling the structure " in April 2019.

The Houxi Long Distance Bus Station, built in 2015, was moved to make way for a new high-speed railway station.

Weighing 33,000 tons " the equivalent of 2 Brooklyn Bridges " it took more than a month to complete the move, and the engineers have just been awarded a Guinness World Record for the feat.
