03 May 2016

The Department of Labour-appointed Grayston Drive Pedestrian and Cyclist Structural Bridge Collapse Inquiry is to resume tomorrow (04 May 2016) with lead evidence from Formscaff Holdings.

The Inquiry starts on 4-6 May following the postponement of an earlier session that was supposed to be held (19-21 April) after failure by interested stakeholders in the inquiry to submit their reports on the incident.

The Section 32 inquiry was set-up by the Department of Labour following the collapse on 14 October 2015 of the temporary bridge on the M1/Grayston Drive, which led to the deaths of two people and injury to 19 others. The Section 32 hearing was appointed by the Department in terms of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act to investigate instances of negligence.

Media is invited to the briefing.

Venue: Sandown Castle Estate 19 Westbrooke Drive, Sandton, Gauteng.

Time: 10am.

When: 4-6 May 2016.
