A fence fell at the light rapid transit (LRT) construction site in front of Saidah Tower on Jl. MT Haryono, South Jakarta, owing to heavy rain on Thursday.

Civil construction division manager of the Greater Jakarta LRT project, Ery Satriadi, said on Friday that there was no severe damage in the incident.

“The project’s excavation slope was eroded by the rain. Only a project fence fell to the ground,” he said as quoted by kompas.com.

Ery said construction workers would clean the site and reinstall the fence before building the project’s foundation. (ecn/syl)
