group of leading experts in structural engineering to review concerns about
certain concrete girders used on the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway and make
recommendations on next steps.



Chaired by Harvey J. Kirsh, a recognized authority in
construction law, the experts will assess the safety, durability, quality and
performance of girders containing tack-welded steel. Part of the review will
involve assessing the girders' compliance with any applicable act, code or
regulation.

Advertisment

The girders in question will be removed if their safety and
durability cannot be assured and compliance concerns cannot be addressed. All
findings will be made public.
 
Investing in modern infrastructure is part of the
government's plan to create jobs, strengthen communities and help people in
their everyday lives. 

·     
The review will focus on the use of a number of
concrete girders installed in tunnels, on which construction is not completed
and are not open to the public.



·     
Experts have been asked to submit findings and
recommendations to the government by the end of August. A deadline extension
may be granted at the request of the Chair of the review committee.
