City to Place Safety Nets Over Manholes to Prevent Injuries
Shenzhen rainy season starts off with heavy rains last Tuesday, which led many residents to worry on the risks coming from lidless manholes of the city sewers. Several netizens are calling for the government to place nylon nets over the manholes to prevent people from falling in and sustain injuries or worse death.
Manholes found at construction site around Shenzhen are often lidless and is dangerous especially on rainy days were these manholes are hard to see with water flowing. By installing nylon safety nets over these manholes can prevent any tragedies and it will only cost the government a few yuan. The said nylon safety nets can bear a weight of almost 300 kilograms.
Meanwhile the Shenzhen Municipal Water Affair Bureau said that they have already installed several safety nylon nets on manholes found around the Universiade sports center. And they are gradually working on installing more of these safety nets on manholes across the city.
