KUALA TERENGGANU 3 Jun (Utusan Malaysia)- Kakitangan penyenggara syarikat kontraktor dari Korea yang bertanggungjawab memasang bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, Kompleks Sukan Negeri di Gong Badak di sini, dilihat memasuki stadium itu beberapa minit sebelum bumbungnya runtuh semalam.

Salah seorang pengurus Kompleks Sukan Negeri, Khairol Azmi berkata, kakitangan syarikat kontraktor itu berada di stadium berkenaan untuk memeriksa keadaan bumbungnya.

”Berdasarkan buku rekod di pondok keselamatan di pintu masuk utama Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, mereka mendaftar masuk beberapa minit sebelum runtuhan berlaku.

”Mereka tidak sempat periksa bumbung stadium. Mereka terus pulang selepas kejadian itu berlaku,” katanya ketika ditemui di stadium berkenaan di sini hari ini.

Khairol berkata, kerja-kerja pembersihan runtuhan bumbung stadium tersebut belum dijalankan kerana menunggu kebenaran Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat dan Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR).

”Kebenaran untuk membersihkan stadium dijangka dikeluarkan selepas dipastikan semua struktur sudah selamat,” ujarnya.

Justeru, katanya, empat pejabat iaitu pengurusan, keselamatan, boling dan penyenggaraan berpindah ke stadium tertutup yang terletak bersebelahan.

”Hari ini, semua pihak yang berpejabat di sini telah memindahkan barangan mereka seperti dokumen penting ke pejabat sementara di stadium tertutup,” katanya.

KUALA TERENGGANU 3 Jun Utusan Malaysia) – Kelemahan struktur bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, Kompleks Sukan Negeri di Gong Badak telah dikesan sejak perasmian pembukaan Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) 2008, namun tiada tindakan segera dari Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) berhubung perkara itu.

Menteri Besar, Datuk Ahmad Said ketika mendedahkan perkara itu berkata, apabila hal itu dirujuk kepada JKR, jabatan berkenaan memberi jaminan akan mengarahkan kontraktor mengambil tindakan selepas Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) 2008 berlangsung.

”Mesyuarat sudah diadakan, namun tiada tindakan. Tiga minggu lepas saya hubungi lagi timbalan pengarah JKR negeri minta hal itu disegerakan kerana bimbang tempoh jaminan akan habis.

”Dua minggu lepas JKR tulis surat kepada kontraktor untuk mengambil tindakan terhadap masalah itu,” ujarnya selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat Exco kerajaan negeri di sini hari ini.

Menurut Ahmad, struktur bumbung yang lemah dikesan apabila ia bergegar ketika pasukan komando mahu memasang tali untuk pertunjukan ‘abseiling’ sempena perasmian stadium itu oleh Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.

Jelasnya, disebabkan tidak yakin dengan kekuatan struktur bumbung stadium, pertunjukan ‘abseiling’ anggota komando dilakukan menggunakan helikopter.

Bagaimanapun, enggan menuding jari kepada mana-mana pihak tegasnya, kerajaan negeri menerima kenyataan bahawa kejadian runtuhan itu telah berlaku dan akan melantik konsultan luar untuk melakukan siasatan selain konsultan yang dilantik oleh JKR.

”Jadi, ada dua konsultan yang akan mencari punca kejadian ini. Kita tidak mahu bergantung kepada satu pandangan sahaja supaya lebih selamat,” ujarnya.

Beliau berkata, pengesahan keselamatan stadium itu sebelum ini sepatutnya dilakukan oleh JKR, bukannya konsultan yang dilantik oleh kontraktor.

”Saya kadang-kadang terkilan dengan konsultan, kerja tiga empat tahun sudah mahu jadi konsultan. Dahulu ada pengalaman 20 hingga 30 tahun baru tubuhkan syarikat konsultan,” ujarnya.

Beliau mencadangkan supaya JKR menetapkan standard untuk menubuhkan syarikat konsultan perlu mempunyai pengalaman sekurang- kurangnya 15 tahun.

Ditanya kemungkinan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) membuka kertas siasatan berhubung kejadian itu tegasnya, beliau sedia memberi kerjasama penuh jika ia boleh membersihkan nama kerajaan negeri.

Stadium baru setahun diguna sudah runtuh – Struktur bumbung ranap dalam masa 10 saat


TINJAUAN udara menunjukkan runtuhan sebahagian daripada bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin di Kompleks Sukan Gong Badak, Kuala Terengganu semalam.


KUALA TERENGGANU (Kosmo) – Pagi ini sepatutnya kira-kira 1,000 atlet dan pegawai sukan dijadualkan menyertai Kejohanan Sukan Staf Institusi Pengajian Awam Malaysia kali ke-34 di Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin di sini.

Bagaimanapun, mereka bernasib baik kerana 24 jam sebelum menyertai acara masing-masing pada kejohanan itu, bumbung stadium tempat mereka bakal beraksi ‘menyembah bumi’ semalam.

Kejadian yang berlaku kira-kira pukul 9.30 pagi itu telah menyebabkan 60 peratus daripada bumbung stadium yang dibina kontraktor dari Korea Selatan itu ranap sama sekali selepas struktur besinya dipercayai patah.

Insiden yang pertama kali berlaku di Malaysia itu sebenarnya meninggalkan banyak persoalan dan memalukan industri pembinaan di negara ini.

Selain ranap pada usianya baru setahun, kualiti Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin di Gong Badak yang dibina dengan kos kira-kira RM300 juta itu boleh dipersoalkan kerana bumbungnya ranap sama sekali.

Dalam kejadian itu, bahagian timur stadium itu terjejas apabila kesemua struktur bumbung berbentuk bulan sabit roboh sepenuhnya.

Kawasan yang terlibat itu menempatkan pintu masuk utama, pintu A, B dan B1 yang turut mengandungi tempat duduk awam serta bumbung tempat duduk tetamu diraja serta orang kenamaan.

Beberapa saksi memberitahu Kosmo!, bumbung stadium sepanjang 400 meter itu roboh dalam masa 10 saat sahaja menyebabkan gegaran kuat di sekitar stadium.

KUALA TERENGGANU (NST): It was a disaster waiting to happen, said engineer A. Mohamed.

Mohamed, who works in a private firm said he often jogged in the area and had noticed that the space frame which held the roof was getting bent out of shape.

“It could be seen from far away. I feared it would give way eventually and the roof would collapse. Today, it did.”

Mohamed claimed he had tried to warn government agencies and the media by sending pictures of the defects but was ignored.

Electrician Hanafiah Osman, 27, whose car was damaged in the incident said he was working on a lamp post outside the stadium when he heard a loud noise.
“I turned around and saw the roof collapsing.

“I rushed to my car but it was already crushed,” he said.

Stadium Management Board chief executive officer Arpin Draman said fortunately no event was held at the stadium as the roof collapsed on the grandstand.

“At the time of the incident, only a handful of stadium employees were in the vicinity and none of them were hurt.”

Arpin said he had never doubted the stadium’s structure as its safety had been assured by the Public Works Department.

“We have a bowling alley and squash courts in the stadium and it was fortunate the roof fell before they opened at 10am.”

KUALA TERENGGANU (NST): If the roof of the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium had collapsed today instead of yesterday, thousands of lives may have been lost.

For the stadium was scheduled to host the Public Institutions of Higher Learning games which would have seen thousands of competitors and spectators packed in the year-old sports arena.

Although no lives were lost, the collapsed roof has left numerous red faces in the state.

Calling it an embarrassment that had tarnished the country’s image, Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor lashed out at contractors for not building a proper structure.

Shaziman said the ministry would investigate the cause of the collapse and an in-house consultant would evaluate the damage.
A car and three motorcycles parked outside the stadium were damaged when about 80 metres of the roof collapsed about 9.30am.

Most of the debris crashed onto the grandstand of the RM292 million ringgit stadium.

“People will say that in Malaysia, not only newly constructed buildings collapse, but even ones earmarked for demolition,” he said, referring to the collapse of the Jaya Shopping Centre in Petaling Jaya, Selangor on Thursday, which killed seven Indonesian workers and injured two others.

“There should be no compromise when it comes to selecting the best experts for such jobs.”

Shaziman was speaking after visiting the site yesterday afternoon. Also present were Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said, state secretary Datuk Mokhtar Nong and several state executive council members.

On opposition politicians’ statements that they would lodge a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission on the matter, Shaziman said there was nothing to hide and the ministry would cooperate with the MACC.

Said said the stadium was issued a temporary certificate of fitness by the Public Works Department just before the Malaysian Games last May, although none was required for a government building.

He also estimated damage at RM25 million, adding that a Korean contractor was appointed to construct the roofing structure.

“We don’t have the details of why and how it happened but we will wait until the investigations are over,” he said, adding that the stadium would be closed until repairs were completed.

He also said the stadium was still under the main contractors’, Bina Struktur Sdn Bhd, Emarcon Sdn Bhd and Genggam Mercu, two-year warranty.

KUALA TERENGGANU 2 Jun – Bumbung Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, Kompleks Sukan Negeri di Gong Badak yang bernilai RM292 juta dan menjadi lokasi utama Sukan Malaysia (Sukma) 2008 runtuh pagi ini menyebabkan kira-kira 50 peratus daripada strukturnya musnah.

Runtuhan pada pukul 9.30 pagi itu berlaku kira-kira setahun stadium tersebut dirasmikan oleh Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin pada 10 Mei tahun lalu.

Kerosakan melibatkan bumbung di bahagian timur stadium sepanjang 400 meter itu menempatkan pintu masuk utama, pintu A, B dan B1 ke tempat duduk awam dan tempat duduk tetamu diraja serta orang kenamaan (VIP).

Kejadian itu turut merosakkan sebuah kereta jenis Perodua Kancil serta tiga buah motosikal, tetapi tiada kehilangan nyawa atau kecederaan dilaporkan.

Ini berikutan kesemua 19 pekerja di sebuah pusat boling yang berada di aras satu, stadium setinggi lima tingkat itu berjaya menyelamatkan diri sebaik menyedari runtuhan.

Pemilik kereta berkenaan, Hanafiah Osman, 27, yang berada di luar stadium berkata, dia bersama empat rakannya sedang menjalankan kerja-kerja memasang lampu apabila tiba-tiba mendengar bunyi seperti benda ‘patah’ kira-kira pukul 9.30 pagi.

“Bunyi kuat itu datang daripada tempat saya meletakkan kereta. Saya terus bergegas ke sana dan melihat bumbung tersebut runtuh perlahan-lahan lalu menghempap kereta saya.

“Saya tergamam melihat runtuhan itu dan menelefon bapa untuk memberitahu kejadian yang berlaku,” katanya ketika ditemui di tempat kejadian di sini hari ini.

Hanafiah yang menetap di Kampung Bukit Bayas di sini berkata, tiga motosikal rosak itu adalah milik rakan sekerjanya dan turut melakukan kerja-kerja pemasangan lampu.

Dalam pada itu, Pengarah Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat negeri, Penguasa Kanan Bomba 1 Pauzan Ahmad berkata, terdapat seramai 19 orang berada di dalam stadium ketika kejadian berlaku.

“Bagaimanapun mereka iaitu 17 pekerja di Pusat Boling Si Diman dan dua pengawal keselamatan berjaya menyelamatkan diri.

“Namun pihak bomba tetap menjalankan pemeriksaan di setiap tingkat stadium yang terlibat dalam runtuhan itu,” katanya.

Beliau memberitahu, pihaknya menerima laporan mengenai kejadian tersebut kira-kira pukul 9.45 pagi dan tiba di tempat kejadian tujuh minit kemudian.

“Seramai 25 anggota dengan tiga buah jentera dari Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat Hiliran serta Jalan Kota dikejarkan ke tempat kejadian,” ujarnya.

Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin merupakan salah sebuah daripada dua stadium yang terdapat di Kompleks Sukan Negeri selain stadium tertutup.

Pembinaan Kompleks Sukan Negeri dimulakan pada 2005 dengan kos keseluruhan RM452 juta, lebih sedikit daripada kos asal berikutan kenaikan harga bahan binaan.

Kos berkenaan meliputi Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin yang dibina dengan harga RM292 juta manakala stadium tertutup RM160 juta dengan pelbagai kemudahan sukan serta rekreasi lain.

KUALA TERENGGANU (The Star): Several Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers were seen photographing and interviewing witnesses at the site of the collapsed roof at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Stadium in Gong Badak.

Four plainclothes officers, including state MACC director Ahmad Sabri Hussin, were spotted at the site between noon and 1pm.

When approached, one officer said a probe had been initiated into the awarding and managing of the contract to a South Korean construction firm which was responsible for the work.

“We are probing whether there are elements of graft and mismanagement,” said the officer who requested anonymity.

He said the MACC would focus its probe on the awarding process of the contract.

Asked if politicians and senior government officials had been involved in the awarding of the contract, he said: “It’s still premature and I don’t want to elaborate on this.”

Some 60% of the stadium roof collapsed and the impact severely damaged other parts of the building.

Construction of the RM300mil stadium, which began in 2005, had hit a snag midway apparently due to technical glitches.

The contractor was to hand over the sports complex in April last year to the state government for Sukma, which was held from May 31 to June 6, but delivery was only made a month later.

In an immediate response, Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Mansor said his ministry would cooperate with the MACC and that it would be transparent, adding that it had nothing to hide.

“I am more concerned about our image being sullied abroad and I welcome MACC to investigate,” he said.

Batu Burok assemblyman Dr Syed Azman Syed Ahmad Nawawi said the matter was of public interest and that the MACC should centre its probe on the involvement of “high-powered individuals”.

Meanwhile, some 5,000 athletes representing 20 higher learning institutions who were to converge at the stadium for a sports meet had to go to a different venue at the last minute.

The organiser’s spokesman Zakaria Ibrahim said the event would go ahead as planned.
