"I have inspected the site and I'm leaving with the results of soil tests to complete the report, I think submit in a week," he has said. This mission was intense, he adds, with site inspections, sample collections, meetings between the customer and the manufacturer as well as visits to the laboratory. Mostafa Elsibai will return "probably" when repairs will begin "in a few weeks."
Blur persists regarding the entity responsible for design of the road. According to the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, the manufacturer Rehm-Grinaker-Colas would "design and build" the collapsed section of the Ring Road. It is for this reason that the consortium had agreed to take responsibility for the repair, after a meeting between the Road Development Authority (RDA) and the consultant on Tuesday.
However, the Resident Engineer of ACE seems to say that the responsibility entrusted to them to review the design made initially by British (DHV International in 1994), followed by Indians (Consulting Engineering Services in 2000) as well as overseeing the construction of the Ring Road.
To answer some comments that the company has been favored Mostafa Elsibai said it is positioned after an international tender. "We have submitted our proposal and we were selected," explains the Resident Engineer ACE.
"Nobody within ACE has no contact with anyone in Mauritius. We are a big company who worked on road projects in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar, Yemen, Uganda, Sudan, Tanzania, Oman. For the contract in Mauritius, we went through the formal procedures. "
Mostafa Elsibai retracted his remarks to express, kept it a week ago, according to which he would have previously observed a similar problem on one of the ACE road projects in the Gulf region.But he now says he never seen "such damage."
For their part, representatives of the consortium Rehm-Grinaker/Colas remain unreachable. We could not even get their story.
