18-Meter-Deep Basement Collapses Homes In Beijing

Recommended Posts

A lawmaker was found to have illegally dug an 18-meter-deep basement beneath his home in Beijing, which allegedly caused the collapse of his home and the collapse of roads and four other houses. The house collapsed on Saturday and left a 10-meter-deep hole on the road. The Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning said Wednesday that it issued a renovation permit to Li but it did not include digging a basement.

Given Bejing property/land prices being as nutty as they are then, just like in some more affluent parts of London, perhaps he thought he could maximise his property square footage by building downwards?

It's a good thing they don't do this illegally in London.

I one house fell down and took out another four then that would be a loss of about £100,000,000 !

We can't afford that. :lol:

Coming to London soon.

Just as well London is not built on water-sodden mud with a rapidly rising water table due to all the industry moving out as its too expensive.
