Two women remain in hospital after a construction site accident in the City last night.

The girls in their 20s were walking along North Terrace around 5.30 when a metal gate fell on them, trapping them until help arrived.

They were rushed to the RAH with abdominal and pelvis injuries.

Workers at the Adelaide Medical and Nursing project will be given a safety briefing before tools are picked up today.

While an investigation is expected to look into whether an electrical failure is to blame.
