TAIPEI, Taiwan — A busy intersection in Taipei will remain closed to traffic until
Friday at the earliest after a botched construction Sunday caused part of the pavement to sink, the Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) said on Tuesday.
Taipower expanded the road closure of the collapsed intersecting area of Taipei’s Bade Road and Guangfu Road’s North and South sections on Wednesday, in order to pour in cement to repair the area Tuesday marked the fourth day in which Taipei authorities have sealed of the intersection.
On April 29, Taipower began a routine maintenance service in the cable tunnel which connected the Da’an Electrical Substation with the Songhu Electrical Substation. As maintenance continued on April 30, toward the area where Bade Road and both parts of Guangfu Road intersected, Taipower discovered both sand and water seepage and called for the surrounding area to be sealed off so that repairs could be done.
