Report into deadly train crash highlights 'unprofessional' worksites
Excerpt

Taipei, May 10 (CNA) Unprofessional worksite practices and unclear contract stipulations were among a number of failures surrounding a train crash that killed 49 and injured 213 in April last year, the Taiwan Transportation Safety Board (TTSB) said Tuesday.

On April 2, 2021, the No. 408 Taroko Express Train derailed and crashed into the wall of the Qingshui Tunnel at 9:28 a.m. after hitting a contractor's crane truck that had rolled onto the tracks.

A TTSB report released Tuesday found that pressure from the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) to expedite already delayed construction had led to contractors ignoring instructions to suspend work on the day of the crash.
