Emptied construction rooms are to stay empty

HERE'S another place where Shanghai is stepping up security: Inside emptied houses and temporary staff dorms at the city's many relocation construction sites.

Under planned new rules, managers of relocation projects can be punished for allowing people to move into emptied houses whose residents have already been relocated.

Some of those apartments, including semi-demolished ones, have been used by migrants as temporary sheds. But they are usually risky to live in and cut off from utilities.

Managers running relocations are required by the future rules to patrol these apartments regularly to ensure no one is using these shabby properties as living quarters.

In addition, IDs are to be sent to police to make sure no relatives or friends of the workers are sharing the rooms on construction sites - a safety precaution, authorities said.
