Red Road tower block razed in five seconds
June 11 2012
Alex McGuire, from Glasgow Housing Association, said: "The Red Road flats were popular in their day and are known around the world, but their time has come to an end.
"We're pleased the demolition of the first of the Red Road blocks went according to plan."
William Sinclair, from demolition contractors Safedem, said: "The Red Road flats have presented a unique series of challenges ranging from the size of the buildings to the steel frame structure.”
Seven towers remain on the estate, all of which will be demolished by 2017.
