ImageAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The municipality of Amsterdam, the inhabitants of the Vijzelgracht not well informed about the work on the North-South line in the street. Also, the lack of capital monitored the construction of the new subway connection.


That concludes the Municipal Ombudsman Ulco of Pol in a Wednesday report on the subsidence caused by the work of four buildings in the street on June 19. He called the actions of the capital, indecent''.

Cause of the subsidence was a leak in a wall of a deep excavation pits from the North-South line. The groundwater flowed into the site and its level fell below the buildings, adding that began to move. The spill created by the end of 2006 between planks add some walls were deeply depressed. It was known that this is an increased risk of leaks entailed, but the town told this to the residents.

False sense of security

Amsterdam, the residents also wrong about that subsidence monitoring system should say. The capital gave the impression that even the smallest movement of the properties would identify. However, when the four buildings started sag, the system had nothing in the holes. The local residents had therefore, a false sense of security'', said the Ombudsman.

Other things went wrong that night. A resident reported itself to half past four noon in the town because his house was the founder. The relevant officer took him seriously and not sent him away. Only hours later action was taken. Eight residents had their house, but then was also the reception by the municipality under the measure.
