SUBSTANDARD PROJECT. A crack on the middle of the government
funded Sinocalan Bridge in Sta. Barbara, Pangasinan that connects the national
highway has been blocked to motorists. The multi-million pesos bridge was just opened by the Department of Public Works & Highway to the public a year ago.
The substandard work allegedly done by Northern
Builders based in Tarlac City showed a very thin cement pavement that showed the
iron grills’ reinforcement inside exposed to the naked eye after the pavement
was damaged by the impact of the tires of vehicles.
