SINGAPORE

 

 Part of a highway structure under construction at Upper Changi Road East collapsed early Friday (July 14) morning, killing a 31-year-old worker from China and injuring 10 others.

 

The cause of the collapse is unclear, and the police said investigations are ongoing.

 

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted at 3.35am to the incident, which is at a slip road into Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards the Changi Airport. About 60 SCDF officers, including members from the Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART), as well as SCDF K9 dogs, conducted a three-hour search and rescue operation.

 

At 6.45am, the SCDF said all workers at the site had been accounted for. It is unclear how many workers were at the site during the accident, or the extent of the injuries of those affected.

 

The injured workers were taken to Changi General Hospital. Two of the injured were seen at the hospital's Accident and Emergency section around 8am, one with an ankle injury and the other abrasions on his hand.

 

They told TODAY that they had been working on an extra late shift, and that those involved in the accident were mostly from China and Bangladesh. 

 

A sign listing the official details of the construction project described it as a viaduct from the Tampines Expressway to the PIE (Westbound) and Upper Changi Road East. CPG Consultants is listed as the professional engineer for the project, while Or Kim Peow Contractors is listed as the builder.

 

The project was expected to be completed on November 22, 2019.
