Bridge Ramp Collapses

An unfinished interchange ramp linked to the Penang Second Bridge collapsed on the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway at Batu Maung in early June, resulting in one death, while three others were injured.

The Department of Occupational Health and Safety (DOSH) has begun investigations into the collapse of the ramp. Penang DOSH director Mohd Anuar Embi said the investigation would focus on the building design, installation method, workers’ supervision, soil factor and safety system that were used to see if there was a breach of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994.
