NGHỆ AN — The People’s Committee of central Nghệ An Province’s Vinh City has suspended the construction of 17 building sites, at which tower cranes were used without licensed or cranes that were operating outside specified construction areas.
The 17 building sites flouting regulations were among 21 on-going construction sites that the committee had inspected since early this month.
The move aimed to tighten control over the operation of tower cranes in the city and ensure the safety of people.
The committee has asked the investors of these projects to remove the tower cranes. The possibility of resuming operation of the construction sites would be considered, it said.
On November 14, a tower crane collapsed on a high school in Vinh City, killing one student in the playground and destroying a part of the school’s roof. — VNS
