Cars tumble into construction site as road caves in
“Some buildings even started to lean slightly. But the construction company completely ignored the problem after we went to talk to them,” Chen complained angrily.
In response, however, some representatives of the company that is developing the site – the Cheng Chi Construction Corp – yesterday said that the foundation of Lane 156 was already fragile before the excavations started because the Taiwan Power Co the Taipei Water Department and the Chunghwa Telecom Co have all buried electric cables and water pipes under the road surface.
Right, like always. Just say that it’s someone else’s fault.
