Structure collapse along PIE Changi; 1 dead, 10 injured”

"Works at all LTA road and rail construction sites will observe a safety timeout this morning". Just this Tuesday, OKP and one of its supervisors were convicted and fined over safety lapses at a work site in September 2015 under the Yio Chu Kang Flyover, where a worker died after falling 6.4m when a platform gave way.

In a media statement, LTA said Or Kim Peow (OKP) Contractors was carrying out works to cast decking for the new viaduct when a section of the structure between two piers collapsed.

It also said that preliminary investigations indicated that the corbels supporting the pre-cast beams had given way. About 60 SCDF officers, including members of Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART) are involved in the search and rescue operation.

The injured workers, six from Bangladesh, three from China and one from India, were sent to the Changi General Hospital, it said in a post on Facebook. However, a CGH spokesperson said that eight of the 10 have been admitted at the hospital. K9 search dogs have also been deployed to assist in the operation.

LTA officers have already been assigned to help the injured workers and their families.

Engineers responsible for the project had been ordered to carry out a detailed investigation into the design and construction quality, the LTA said.

Recovery works for the affected slip road from Upper Changi Road East to PIE (Changi) are estimated to take about two days, before it can be re-opened for traffic, said the LTA.

"We are saddened by the accident and will do whatever we can to assist the families during this hard time".

In the meantime, motorists can make a U-turn at the Upper Changi Road East and Loyang Avenue junction to get on PIE (Changi). This temporary bypass road is expected to be open by Saturday morning, said LTA.
