It is unlikely that any company or persons will be found liable for the damaged Supenaam stelling with Government last week saying that it is now focusing on quickly repairing the multi-million-dollar facility.Questioned about the President-ordered probe into the stelling malfunction, Government spokesman, Dr. Roger Luncheon, during his weekly press briefing last Friday, said that the time for blame has passed.Repairs to the Supenaam stelling underway last week.“We were not surprised and you should not be surprised that no one ever stood up and said I would accept the blame. And it seems quite appropriate not to make that the dominant activity.”Four days after being opened to ferry traffic in May last year, a drawbridge of the $431M facility buckled under the weight of vehicles loading.The facility was closed and ferries operating between Parika and Essequibo Coast were redirected to use the old Adventure Stelling which had been shut down days earlier.Dr Luncheon was questioned late last year on the investigations and had hinted that finding a single company or entity to blame was difficult.“I pointed out that trying to allocate blame has unleashed a series of interventions by the Prime Minister and by Cabinet,Cheap NFL Jerseys, and for all intents and purposes it was essentially inconclusive.  The blame was being shifted right across the board from the designers,cheap nfl jerseys, from the state agency that accepted the design, from the contractors that executed the design to the sub-contractors.”Following the collapse of the ramp,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, President Bharrat Jagdeo had ordered a report on the incident tasking Prime Minister Samuel Hinds to oversee it.There had been meetings with several of the parties involved in the construction of the stelling, including the contractors, BK International; the Ministry of Local Government, which was the executing agency; the supervisors, Vikab Engineering and the designers, SNC Lavelin.Meetings were also held with the Ministry of Public Works which had insisted that the facility was taken over with flaws.Key to those meetings was which parties would have been footing the bill to fix the defects and subsequent damage to the facility.In January 2010, the stelling was handed over to the Ministry of Public Works.Government last year spent an additional $18M to ready the stelling for opening in May when the drawbridge had buckled.This year, over $50M was earmarked in the National Budget for the stelling to be fixed.Authorities have said that test runs could be conducted this month, as scheduled and once those tests are successful,NFL Jerseys Supply, the facility will be opened in phases to traffic.It was disclosed that the metal strips that joined the ramp to the concrete driveway have been replaced.
