Six months after a road viaduct collapsed in Upper Changi Road East, investigations into the accident which killed one worker and injured 10 others have not been completed.
Construction workers who survived the accident said the collapse took them all by surprise.
The 2km road has been delayed because the main contractor is facing financial difficulties.
Contractor had lowest quality score among bidders; workplace safety laws under review.
Safety makes up about a quarter of the quality score when the Land Transport Authority evaluates project tenders.
The consultant who designed the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) viaduct that collapsed on July 14 is also the supervisor who checked the construction works, The Straits Times (ST) has learnt.
Supports added as a precaution following discovery of cracks during probe into fatal accident.
A veteran civil engineer said corbels are “extremely strong structures” which do not give way “just like that”.
The firm had been found guilty just three days earlier in connection with another accident at a construction site.
