Jamuna credits

Omitted from your feature on Jamuna Bridge (18 June) were:

the bridge designer - TY Lin of San Francisco;

the hydraulic studies and river works designer - Haskoning of the Netherlands;

the management consultant of the project - Halcrow/Price Waterhouse.

No credit was given to the Bangladesh government for its ability to administer a construction project of over US$900M without significant delay or cost increases. This was a major achievement.

Malcolm Fletcher (F), Whitley Lodge, 21 Castle Street, Aldbourne, Wiltshire SN8 2DA.
