Several pillars of a residential building in Jinan, Shandong province were seen being held together with strips of transparent tape after numerous cracks began appearing on them, Cajing News reported.
Some of the pillars on the building also appear to be held together with ropes. Residents have, for good reason, expressed feeling uneasy when walking by. A few of them said that they cover their heads with their hands as they walk underneath the building as a safety precaution.
Staff members from the local government’s sub-district office told reporters that taping the cracks together is only a tempory measure to keep the cement from falling off. Meanwhile, they’ve called on the property management company in charge of the building to repair the problem as soon as possible.
Hopefully that’s very soon.
