A series of manhole covers in Thu Thiem urban area were lost
Ho Chi Minh CityNearly a dozen manhole covers with an area of 2 m2 along the sidewalk of To Huu street, Thu Thiem urban area, Thu Duc city, were lost, potentially dangerous for pedestrians.
On the afternoon of May 14, a representative of the People’s Committee of Thu Thiem ward said that he had informed the investor and the police to investigate the loss of a series of manhole covers located on To Huu Street, Thu Thiem ward, in the past few days. The route that has lost its manhole cover is often crowded with pedestrians and cools in the evening.
The area of the missing manhole cover is about a kilometer from Thu Thiem 2 bridge. The manhole covers are 1×2 m in size, located on the sidewalk about 10 m apart. Below is a tunnel more than 2m deep with a sewage system. There’s a drain with a lid that’s full of trash underneath.
Some sewers are covered with planks by people to avoid the risk of pedestrians falling. According to a worker of the project construction unit, it is possible that the manhole cover was stolen. In addition to temporary shielding, the remaining manhole covers are covered with concrete blocks to prevent them from being taken.
