Judge orders work stoppage at Brazil WCup stadium

02 October 2013, 18:37

Sao Paulo - A Brazilian labor judge has ordered the suspension of construction work at the World Cup stadium in Curitiba because of concerns related to workers' safety.

The judge ruled that safety improvements must be implemented before the work can continue at Arena da Baixada in the southern city.

The stadium is one of the six trying to make the December deadline established by FIFA for the delivery of all 12 World Cup venues. Six were completed for this year's Confederations Cup.

Club Atletico Paranaense, in charge of the stadium's construction, said it will not immediately comment on the judge's order, but it said work was yet to be stopped by Wednesday morning.

Construction work at the stadium was about 80 percent completed.
