Former Cadbury factory poised for demolition

A web of scaffolding around the old Cadbury warehouse site in Dunedin continued to grow yesterday, in anticipation of the building’s demolition.

Nothing but 55,000 tonnes of debris will be left after the two inner-city blocks are knocked down to make way for the new Dunedin Hospital.

About 50,000 tonnes of that is destined for the Burnside landfill.

An estimated 4000 tonnes of scrap metal would be recycled and some of the buildings’ native timber would be salvaged.

Health Minister David Clark said there would be changes around the city and dust and traffic disruption would come with time.
