I was told the government through UEM has appointed Maunsall Zakaria Sharma as the submission structural consulting engineer for the Penang 2nd Bridge.
MZS was also the same consulting engineer for the MRR2 project which was later diagnosed with design error.
The repair and strengthening of MRR2 was said to have cost RM80 million and since it was attributed as design fault that contributed to the structural failure there exist a design guarantee bond, provided under the contractual terms, by the contractor and also a professional indemnity bond provided by the design engineer to cover and indemnify the government in such event.
Interestingly, it seems the government was gracious and forgiving, and disquietly forgetful too.
