Katong Park MRT Station Construction
The death of a Bangladeshi construction worker who was guiding an excavator when another excavator’s bucket was dislodged and directly fell on him. The accident happened on the 19th of December, 2015. The worker was declared dead on arrival upon reaching the hospital. There was no stop-work order issued after this accident happened.
The narrow construction corridor that is along the Meyer Road also proved to be another constraint in the progress of this station’s construction phase. Much of the land being reclaimed, most of it laid out on soft clay soil which is difficult to build and dig on because of its soil property and softness.
