    In 1958, I saw in Belgium, bunkers exploded, but it is a lot of money to broke the bunker. In france, we prefer to keep them!

    I reckoned the budget up to approximately £11,000 per bunker using their figures and assuming they are going to remove 120 bunkers as stated. I find it difficult to see how they can do it for that money. Maybe some, but not all.

    These bunkers were designed to survive direct hits from capital ships using 15 inch guns or possibly even bigger. The difficulty and cost of tearing these down would run into tens of millions of British Pounds or Euro's never mind Krone, probably more, and there's around 120 to be demolished? We're not talking normal buildings here, they're hardened concrete shelters.

    It'll never happen, not all of them anyway, I betcha....
    Indeed so Ned, it reminds me of the air raid shelter in the Schöneberg district of Berlin, it would have been far too difficult and expensive to demolish so the planned flats were built over it!..3251383226_f7ab9b5142_z.jpg
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
