Moving a bunker

Some time ago I posted about the demolishing and moving of bunkers in the Landfront of Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands.

Two bunkers (134 and 621) were demolished but the local government decided to spare one 134 and move it a couple of meters. This noble effort failed the first time because the bunker sank a bit during the move. In the beginning of September a new attempt was made, this time with more luck. With a force of 2400 tons, hydraulic jacks try to push the bunker 9 meters towards the canal.
The work isn’t finished yet but it’s looking good. A part of the brick canteen is temporarily spared, so that the German drawings can be preserved.
