    ...no one is saying that the civil engineer in question is somehow incompetent or unethical. However, they aren't directly involved with this project are they?

    Thus the over-reaction to the idea that civil agencies may have over-ridden concerns of their engineers (an idea so clichéd that's it's become a action movie trope) strikes me as seriously mis-placed. We've had too many structural failures in this countries infrastructure (both old AND new construction) to realistically deny that the risk is real.
