SpaceX and Telsa founder Elon Musk was impressed by how efficient China is when it comes to its progress in building infrastructure – particularly the country’s recent amazing feat where 1,500 workers built a railway station in just nine hours.
The 46-year-old tech tycoon even went on to compare China’s efficiency to the United States in a tweet on Tuesday:
This remarkable demonstration of manpower occurred on January 19 at the Nanlong Railway Station in Longyan city, southeastern China’s Fujian province, according to CGTN. The team began working on the project at 6:30 p.m. then ended at 3:00 a.m. the following day.
Seven trains as well as 23 diggers were used in the construction. Deputy manager at China Tiesiju Civil Engineering Group – China’s main railroad building company – Zhan Daosong, said that the 1,500 employed workers were split into seven units. These seven units then operated seven tasks simultaneously.
Musk pointed out some of the problems in how the U.S. handle its infrastructure projects in his succeeding tweets.
The South African-born, Canadian American entrepreneur then added:
International media outlets have covered other similar amazing feats in the past, including the 2015 57-story tower in Changsha, Hunan province that was built in just 19 days and the demolition of a major overpass in Nanchang, Jiangxi province with only 200 diggers in just eight hours.
