HA NOI (VNS) — A motorcyclist died after falling from the flyover being constructed at the Cau Giay – Lang Road intersection in Ha Noi yesterday.

Witnesses said that the male motorcyclist hit the soft barriers at the construction site and fell down from the flyover.

On behalf of the project's investor, Vu Ha, director of the Urban Transport Development and Investment Project Management Board under the city's transport department, said the flyover was part of the city's ring road No 2.

The workers were required to install warning signs and lighting systems to control traffic there.

Ha said the police was investigating the incident.

Deputy General Director of Thang Long Construction Corporation Hoang Viet Cuong said the workers had set up warning signs and barriers.

Warning signs about "work ahead" were placed about 200m from the construction site.

Cuong said the workers halted their work after the incident to reinforce safety measures. — VNS
