    Construction work on the line has been beset by a number of cave-ins and floods, as China pushes ahead with its Olympics building programme.
     
    The collapse occurred on Wednesday morning on the Number 10 line, which runs through the main Olympics compound in northwest Beijing.
     
    China Railway 12th Bureau Group Co Ltd, the stated-owned construction company overseeing the work, did not offer a comment on Wednesday.
