Watch a Huge Swarm of Machines Pave a Road in Russia

By Casey Chan on at

There are so many trucks and pavers and steam rollers paving Moscow’s Tverskaya Street in this time lapse that it looks like a massive swarm of machines have taken over Russia. The smaller road rollers look and move a lot like the little planes that launch from the mothership (which, in this case would be the dump trucks).

Dmitry Chistoprudov says that, “about 8,000 tonnes of asphalt mix on the area of more than 32 thousand square metres”. When you see the video, it looks like it all gets done really, really quickly. No surprise when you have that many construction workers and vehicles working at the same damn time.
