Following the Skyway Extension Project mishap in Muntinlupa City on Saturday leaving 1 dead and four injured, Mayor Jaime Fresnedi called for a meeting with contractors and parties involved in the incident to demand accountability.

Fresnedi asked San Miguel Corporation and Skyway contractor EEI Corporation officials on Monday to explain the cause of the accident and has given the executives two days to submit a comprehensive report regarding the collapse of a steel girder in the Skyway Extension Project.

He expressed concern on the possible lapses in the safety protocols implemented by the contractors that led to the incident.

“You must shape up and ensure stricter observance of occupational safety and safe operating procedures especially in high risk areas with heavy traffic. This should be the last incident to happen in your project in Muntinlupa,” Fresnedi warned the officials.

The local exec urged them to take responsibility and extend assistance to the families of the victims and other affected individuals.

Also attending the meeting were Congressman Ruffy Biazon, Vice-mayor Temy Simundac, and members of the City Council.

Majority Floor Leader Coun. Raul Corro said the City Council will be passing a resolution demanding accountability from the contractors and mandating a tighter construction site safety guidelines in Muntinlupa to prevent similar accidents.

Corro said under the resolution, the local government shall be requiring contractors to coordinate with the Muntinlupa City Traffic Management Bureau regarding construction activities such as positioning of steel girders for traffic management.

The City Council wants to impose road rerouting measures on construction sites as part of the stricter construction protocol.

There was no proper coordination with MTMB for traffic management regarding the installation of steel girders in East Service Road for the Skyway Extension Project on Saturday.

SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon Ang on Sunday apologized to the victims and families of the accident and assured that the company will be providing assistance.

The crane operator involved in the incident has been inquested and charged with reckless imprudence resulting to homicide, multiple serious physical injuries, and damage to properties, according to Muntinlupa City Police Station.
