Eight workers were injured after a construction structure on the Cibitung-Cilincing toll road in Cilincing district, North Jakarta collapsed Sunday afternoon.

Construction firm Waskita Beton Precast (WSBP), which is handling the project, said the eight workers had been evacuated from the site and were taken to Citra Harapan Indah Hospital in Bekasi, West Java.

"They sustained mild injuries. They have been discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment," acting WSBP corporate secretary Ales Okta Pratama said on Monday as reported by kompas.com.

"The company has also cleared the site of all workers," he added.

According to Ales, WSBP, a subsidiary of state-owned general contractor Waskita Karya, has set up an internal investigation team to determine the cause of the incident.

"WSBP has set up an internal team so similar events don't happen in the future," he said.

The incident caused no disturbances to the flow of traffic in the Marunda area.

WSBP started the construction of the Cibitung-Cilincing toll road in 2017. 

The 34.8 kilometer toll road, which connects Cibitung in Bekasi regency, West Java and Cilincing, is a part of the Jakarta Outer Ring Road (JORR) II network and is expected to open in 2021. (nal)
