Officials found a bridge to mar

FOUR officials of a Shanghai construction group have been fined after trash was found in the pier of a newly refurbished bridge.

They were fined between 10,000 yuan (US$1,465) and 20,000 yuan and given demerits on behalf of Shanghai Construction Group, the project's chief contractor, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

Shortly after Henan Road Bridge across Suzhou Creek reopened following a facelift last year, a crack occurred in a pier, exposing rubbish stuffed inside the concrete.

The crack was to the decorative part of the pier, with no structural problems indicated, architects said.

But builders didn't strictly follow the planning chart and there were loopholes in quality supervision, said Zhang Zenghuan, chief engineer of Shanghai Urban Project Design Institute.

The four officials were quality control director Liu Zhuanquan, the construction unit's general manager Qin Baohua, and the decoration unit's general manager Wang Lixiong and official Chen Bing.
