Hålogaland bridge contractor official under investigation

Huang Jinping 黄金平, until recently a vice-general manager at Sichuan Road and Bridge Group (SRBG, 四川路桥集团), is being investigated for ‘serious discipline violations’, which usually means corruption, Chinese state media report.

SRBG is building the steelwork for the Hålogaland bridge in Norway, together with a Serbian company connected to Germany’s DSD Steel.

I mentioned Mr Huang last year when writing about SRBG’s background. Besides his position at SRBG, Huang used to be the chairman of a related company, Chuanjiao Road and Bridge (四川川交路桥有限责任公司), with a less stellar record: a section of a bridge they were building in Ziyang, Sichuan, collapsed last year during construction, causing at least two deaths.
