A committee to examine the safety and integrity of certain girders used on the Herb Gray Parkway has concluded that the girders are not “safe and durable”.
Three-hundred of the 500 girders produced with “tack” welds were installed at various spots on the Parkway project.
The committee concluded that “existing non-compliant girders may be salvaged” through a process that will involve strengthening them, and any unsafe girders will be completely removed and replaced.
Murray concluded “the government’s Chief Engineer has recommended the government proceed to implement [the recommendations]. I have accepted that recommendation.”
