PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A large form under construction on a rail guideway near the Pearl Highlands Shopping Center came free Sunday night and could be seen dangling from the structure.

Honolulu rail officials are investigating the incident, and say no one was ever in any danger.

According to spokesman Bill Brennan, crews were working to build a wall on the side of guideway when a "portion of the temporary form work used in our construction operations was separated from the main structural components."

Brennan said there were no injuries to the crew and the dangling form posed no threat to the public.

The temporary form work, used to set concrete, was removed Tuesday afternoon.

"Safety is of the utmost importance to the project team, and we're currently reviewing the incident to prevent future occurrences," Brennan said.

Rail watchers spotted the dangling equipment hanging off the guideway and took photos.

It's hard to miss construction of the roughly $6.5 billion Honolulu rail line through parts of Oahu.
