Traffic Resumes after Cave-in on Beijing Road
Adjust font size:

Traffic was resumed on Monday on an eastern section of Beijing's Third-Ring road, six days after a land cave-in left a 10-meter-deep pit on the pivotal road.

The emergency repairs headquarters said traffic resumed on the Jingguangqiao Bridge at 6:00 AM, but they are still on the alert, fearing more cave-ins during their ongoing operation to pump sewage water out of the No. 10 route of the Beijing subway that is under construction.

The first cave-in occurred at 2:00 AM on January 3, in a sewage conduit at the southeastern corner of Jingguangqiao Bridge in Beijing's central business district. A subsequent cave-in caused sewage to flood the Beijing subway construction site and two-way traffic on that section of the road ground to a halt.
