The scandal-ridden half bridge cum CIQ (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine) complex project looks set to continue its scandal-making streak.

Works Minister S Samy Vellu announced on April 20 that the project contractor Gerbang Perdana Sdn Bhd (GPSD) had been awarded a RM250 million contract to build the land connection from the causeway to the CIQ complex, adding: "I have met the contractor Wednesday (April 19) and told them to start work as soon as possible". ( Bernama , April 20).

But it was only on April 12 that the prime minister made the stunning announcement that the half bridge project was to be abandoned forthwith and a land connection to the CIQ complex be built instead. It is mind-boggling indeed as to how this multi-million ringgit new contract could be awarded within seven days without seriously compromising the professional ethics of both the government (as employer) and the contractor respectively.
