Another day, another collapse

Another day, another collapse

What is going on? After the Terengganu stadium roof collapsed (for the second time), now a flyover in Cyberjaya comes tumbling down.

The flyover links an exit along the Elite Highway to the road leading to the Cyberjaya Science Park.

The NST and Star are quick to point out that the flyover is “owned and managed” by the Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) though the road below is managed by PLUS Malaysia Berhad.

But when was this flyover built and by which company? Who are the shareholders of this company? Who is responsible for the shoddy construction? Who awarded the tender and at what cost? And why has the flyover been unused?

Wikipedia says the Elite Highway is maintained by PLUS Expressway Berhad and Expressway Lingkaran Tengah Sdn Bhd (ELITE).

  1. There are photos circulating on facebook that is hillarious!

    Ultraman Vs Monthra superimposed in the background. The real cause of the collapse!

    Thought I’d lighten the moment just a wee bit :)

     
    • No we cannot just shut up to such a serious act of incompetency shoddyness.
      Blame who. Well the bridge was built in 2007.
      As I have said before Corruption can kill and fill the pocket of these cheaters who use shoddy materials.
      Such people must be brought to book and must not be allowed to continue.
      That go to the current regime. We need change.

       
  2. Check the 2 photos – one in Malaysiakini and the other in Star. The Star shows completed stretch, and the Malaysiakini, and photo above show the incomplete stretch

     
  3. When I was working in that area until 2011 May, these roads were just being completed. Funny thing is that many of the roads built in Cyberjaya lead to a dead end. There is a brigde across the main artery which just ends into a forested area. Hence the bridges are built for future development.
    This dual expressway has already got the signboards fixed, but the road surface is yet incomplete.
    If I am not wrong, this contract was given out before 2008, and the contractor can only handover the asset to the State GOvernment upon successful completion of the project. Hence its still with the contractor

     
    • Thanks for the insights, Sam. So the key questions are, who is the contractor and who approved the contractor? And who appointed the people who approved the contractor? And how much has been paid so far?

       
  4. The ground below CyberJaya are moving, good warning about time the tenants start packing, the Saints set to march in soon. Don’t say they have not been fore-warned!

     
    • Shoddy workmanship and cut corners due to multiple layers of ali-baba-style sub-contracting is a hallmark of BN close-door tender system.

      Such collapse is a bad omen for BN and a wake-up call to all fence-sitting voters.
