96 bumiputera subcontractors involved in Penang Second Bridge project

KUALA LUMPUR: Ninety-six Bumiputera subcontractors, including that of Class F, are involved in the ongoing Penang Second Bridge project with contracts valued at RM961 million, Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said.

He said these Bumiputera subcontractors made up 48% of the total subcontractors appointed for the project, which was 61.83% completed.

"Of the total, six are Class F subcontractors with contracts worth RM1.5 million," he said in reply to Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR-Machang) during question time at the Dewan Rakyat sitting here on Monday, Oct 24.

Shaziman said the Class F subcontractors were mostly involved in finishing works like the installation of road dividers, road signs and landscaping.

"Right now, the works undertaken at the construction site involved specific and highly-technical works, including the installation and the construction of the superstructure. Some of the works are at sea and beyond the Class F Bumiputera subcontractors' expertise," he added. — Bernama
