steel beams, MRTA Purple line, Tao Poon intersection

Ajarn Donald‘s insight:

In Thailand we call this safety first. 

 

On April 26 a concrete barrier also fell from the elevated structure near the same intersection.

Ronnachit Yaemsa-ad, deputy governor of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority (MRTA) which owns the Purple Line project, said the beams had been installed as a walkway for construction workers and were being removed from the station.

The accident happened after a steel cable securing the beams snapped. An MRTA source said the contractor was required to stop traffic before removing the beams but had failed to do so.
