A construction company involved with the Rambler Channel Bridge yesterday denied failing to ensure the safety of a platform which collapsed last year, killing six workers. Takamura Limited, also trading as Pacific Island Consultants, appeared in Tsuen Wan Court on a Labour Department summons. The court heard that six workers, including an engineer, were killed when a platform at the bridge, in Kwai Chung, fell to the ground on June 6. The anchor bolts attaching the platform were half as long as required, the court was told. And the anchors, initially designed for electric cables, should not have been used to support a steel work platform, it was claimed. The main contractors, Dragages and Penta Ocean Construction, were fined $105,000 on August 8 after pleading guilty to three charges of failing to ensure safety and failing to maintain properly built scaffolding. The hearing continues today.
