Au­di­tor-Gen­eral faults Klang bridge project

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

THE Third Klang Bridge Con­struc­tion Project Phase I (Phase I) is less than sat­is­fac­tory due to cost in­crease partly from poor plan­ning, the 2015 Au­di­tor-Gen­eral’s Re­port (Se­ries 2) re­vealed.

Ac­cord­ing to Au­di­tor-Gen­eral Tan Sri Am­brin Buang, the bridge could not be com­pleted as sched­uled by July 2016 and an ex­ten­sion of time had to be granted to the main con­trac­tor un­til De­cem­ber 2016.

“De­lay in com­plet­ing the project and the in­crease in cost could have been avoided if value man­age­ment was car­ried out be­fore the project im­ple­men­ta­tion,” he said.

He noted that the stan­dard op­er­at­ing pro­ce­dures for the pro­cure­ment of trans­porta­tion ser­vices and ameni­ties, were not de­tailed out.
