The state bullet train agency is pushing full throttle to start construction of the important first phase of the California high-speed rail system in as little as six weeks, prompting scrutiny of the state's selection of a construction company with the worst technical scores among bidders. Tutor Perini Corp. won the competition to build the first 29 miles of the high-speed rail route on a low bid of $985 million, even though its design quality, safety plan and engineering, among other factors, ranked at the bottom of five teams seeking the work.

A joint venture formed by Tutor-Saliba Corp., a Sylmar-based construction firm, and Perini Corp. of Framingham, Mass., said it has been awarded a $38.5-million contract to build a subway station at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue in Los Angeles. The station, scheduled for completion in mid-1994, is the joint venture's fourth Metro Red Line project awarded this year, and brings to $217.5 million the total value of the joint venture's Metro Rail projects.

Three retired Carpenters Union members have filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that the trustees and a prominent financial advisor to their union's nearly $2-billion Southern California pension fund have "engaged in improper self-dealing" by investing pension money in businesses in which they have "direct and substantial" financial interests. The first trustee named in the lawsuit is Ronald N. Tutor, president of Tutor-Saliba Corp., one of the state's biggest construction firms.

State officials warned Tuesday that prospects for a proposed high-speed rail line between Los Angeles International Airport and Palmdale could be dampened if its private backers demand substantial public funding. The warnings followed the disclosure Monday by proponents of the 69-mile, multibillion-dollar system that they no longer believe the project can be privately financed, as originally expected.

Ronald N. Tutor, the hard-driving, outspoken boss of the Metro Rail's largest contractor, called the fire that raged through the $35-million tunnel that his crews were building a "tremendous disaster." But he quickly added that the tunnel fire is "one isolated tragedy" in upward of $2 billion in public works contracts completed by his company. Isolated though the fire may be, the Sylmar-based Tutor-Saliba Corp. and its boss have made their share of waves in a notoriously tough business.
