In light of the recent accident, this morning when a steel girder from the Skyway Extension project accidentally fell at the East Service Road, Cupang, Muntinlupa, San Miguel Corporation issued a statement about the moving of target completion from December 2020 to February 2021.
Project contractor EEI Corporation and government authorities are conducting an investigation. However, the initial assessment shows that a crane of EEI fell as it was moving to its next position, hitting the steel girder, causing it to fall.
At least six vehicles were reported to have been affected. We are closely monitoring the situation.
As the project’s contractor, EEI will issue a statement. Their management however has given assurances that they will attend to, and take care of all the needs of those who were affected.
We deeply regret this unfortunate accident and assure a full and thorough investigation. Our thoughts and concern are with the victims and we will make sure they will get all the help they need. Their welfare is our priority.
Meanwhile, after an initial assessment, this unfortunate incident sets back the completion of the Skyway Extension Project. From the December 2020 deadline, the target completion is now February 2021.
