An engineer who failed to go through the detailed plans and design calculations for permanent corbels, or support structures, for the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) viaduct near Upper Changi was sentenced to six months in jail yesterday.

Leong Sow Hon's offence was discovered after a portion of the incomplete viaduct gave way on July 14, 2017. The collapse resulted in the death of 31-year-old Chinese worker Chen Yinchuan. Ten other workers were injured in the incident.

An investigation found that the permanent structures used in the viaduct's construction were so inadequate that they could have collapsed under the weight of a full traffic load and cause a large number of casualties.

Leong, 61, who is also the managing director of Calibre Consulting Singapore, had been appointed by the Land Transport Authority as an accredited checker.
