Kachin State Gov’t to take action against contractors for unfinished construction works


The Kachin State government will take action against construction contractors that fail to complete projects satisfactorily, state finance minister U Nyunt Aung told district and Mohnyin Township departmental officials at a meeting on 7 May.
He said companies must take responsibility for damage they cause in the course of construction work, while government officials must submit reports to keep their superiors informed of the status of projects.
The minister said action would be taken against companies that do not finish projects within three months of the schedule completion date.
A 300-foot-long and 30-foot-wide reinforced concrete bridge for which the Kachin State government paid Thein Than Htay Company K1,049.7 million from the fiscal 2014-15 budget remains less than 50 percent complete, he said.
Likewise, another company has yet to rebuild two wooden bridges on Mohnyin-Kadu road that were eroded by creeks within a year of their construction.
