An East China city is planning to tear down dozens of illegal bus stop shelters on its streets they believe were built by private companies to sell ad space.

A total of 45 bus stop shelters that have stood for years in Hefei, Anhui Province are slated for destruction after it was discovered they were not approved by the city.

Authorities in Yaohai district suspect a large portion of them were built by companies that are profiting from adverts.

Local media reported a company employee has already admitted to the scheme. 

However, commuters haven't been able to tell the difference. One said he had used a stop for several years without realizing it was fake.

An investigation is still underway.
