Chinese railway construction stocks fell Monday in Hong Kong when a newly-built section of a high-speed rail line collapsed in China's central Hubei province. The accident occured heavy rains doused the area. There were no reports of injuries from this latest collapse. Last summer a bullet train crash killed 40 people.
Accoding to the state news agency, Xinjua, the damaged railway will eventually connect Wuhan, Hubai's capitol, with Yichang City.
Hundreds of workers have been sent to the site to repair the damage. Photos from a local newspaper show workers removing rails and sleepers from the scene.
China's cabinet criticised the railways ministry last December for lax safety standards and poor handling of the 2011 crash, but said it remained committed to high-speed rail.
