Good News! MRR2 has been re-paired!
The concrete will not fall anymore and the road is safe for traffic.
See - the traffic is flowing down-under! It's safe!
We do not know how much it has cost the government this time for the re-pair undertaken. I hope it is not $70m again.
Anyway, the Crossbeam looks nice and environmental friendly.
Deputy Director-General of Public Works I Datuk Mohamad Husin said in a statement today that preliminary works are to begin tomorrow on the cracks which have appeared on Pier 28. The decision was reached at a meeting of Public Works Department (JKR) experts, representatives of the consultant and the contractor here today.
BTW, Datuk Mohamad Husin was the Ketua Pengarah Cawangan Jalan when the repair work was implemented, and he was the Superintendent Officer in-charge of the repair works carried out by Bridgex Sdn Bhd and supervised by German Leonhardt Andra & Partner, the expert structural repair consultant. He should have a better understanding of the current problem as well as the historical database of the repair and strengthening works done at that time. He is the best person to know why it is failing.
