Hanoi construction sites pose risk


In November 2014, an iron bar fell from Cat Linh-Ha Dong metro project killed one person instantly and severely injuring several others. 

In mid-2015, at a railway construction site on Ho Tung Mau Street in Hanoi, another 10-metre-long scaffolding bar almost killed two motorbike drivers when it dropped right in front of them. It took place during rush hour and could have turned out to be deadly. 

Most recently, on September 27, a scaffolding pole fell from the 16th floor of a building under construction on Le Van Luong Street in Hanoi’s Thanh Xuan District, killing a woman.
