Demolition of the Yallourn Power Station E2 boiler house

This is the Demolition of the Yallourn Power Station E2 boiler house. The Demolition was kept quiet so that the public would not gather on mass to watch.
I think the authorities were concerned about the large amount of Asbestos that would escape into the air.

Notice the coal dust and Asbestos dust from the demolition. The dust erupted up into the air and traveled towards the crowd, who quickly departed.
