Castlereagh street scaffolding

 on 


Today, Castlereagh street reminded cordoned off by police after the 20m section of scaffolding has partially collapsed threatening a major disaster. The structure is still very unstable as you can see from the photograph and is a major concern for both engineers and police. As it stands there is no easy and safe way to recover it nor is there a way to dismantle it without endangering workmen involved.

It will be interesting to see how the authorities and builders resolve this issue. I am certain a lot of questions will be asked to explain how it could have occurred in the first place. Luckily no one got hurt.
