Posted by temasektimes on July 18, 2012
A temporary scaffolding used for the construction of the new Downtown Line (DTL) Bugis Station subway link roof slab collapsed this morning at 8am causing two workers to be killed.
Eight other workers were injured and were sent to the nearby Raffles Hospital before rescuers arrived.
According to the Land Transport Authority, the Downtown Line Bugis station structure is “substantially complete and structurally sound” and poses no risk to surrounding developments and the public.
The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has ordered all construction work to stop, while the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has revoked the construction permit for the site while investigations are underway.
