Government Bunker (20 photos)

Government Building underground shelters in Canada began in the 60s. While the prime minister was John Defenbaker (John Diefenbaker) because of the name which all the bins got a strange nickname «Diefenbunkers». A total of about 40 countries are expected to guard government buildings functional. But in the end, it was built only a part, and has survived to the present day even less.

The bunker is located 30 kilometers from the capital city of Canada, Ottawa. Place building was chosen. Firstly, the local soil was ideal for this type of object. And secondly, at that time, 30 kilometers were safe enough distance from the epicenter. Construction of the bunker began in 1959 and lasted only 2 years. Besides himself, was also built two radio-field ground military unit, stretched two overlapping lines of government communications.

The bunker itself has 4 levels and had to perform the task and radiation-resistant construction. However, 4 years after its commissioning, it is partially out of date. Technology stepped forward, increased charges bombs and bunker is no longer able to defend against nuclear attack. But, nevertheless, to the mid-90s, he was on account of the military, although it stood for several years completely abandoned (oh, Zloty 90). In 1994, the bunker was handed over to the municipality, and the city was made of it a museum of the Cold War.

After all these procedures special person in chemical protection should be a Geiger counter to measure radioactivity, and if everything is in order, pass inside.
