Incident at Sai Sha Road
The temporary formwork of a horizontal beam of Ma On Shan Rail, north of the footbridge between Tolo Place and Sunshine City Plaza, collapsed during concreting at 12:45 pm today. The formwork is within the construction site at the central divider of Sai Sha Road.
Two workers suffered minor injury and were sent to hospital.
The affected section of Sai Sha Road was re-opened to one-lane traffic in both directions at about 5:30pm.
The same formwork has been used successfully on this project and the cause of failure on this occasion is under investigation.
