Kotor – Folk party greets the termination of the construction of the tunnel Vrmac, which began on the June 11th 2005 – it was said yesterday from the Kotor board of that party on the occasion of today’s formal opening of the tunnel.
In FP they remind on, as they say “few details which marked that job, which was “done” by the Austrian “Starbag”.
– The date of termination was 13 months, and according to the project, that is according to the pre-calculated indicators and values of the best bidder, the investment was supposed to cost 8, 28 millions of euros. After the abrading of a part of a tunnel which was caused because the contractor has stepped away from the project, or because of a mistake in a project, from the most responsible people in Government we haven’t received an explanation who will compensate the difference of 4 millions off euros the amount for which the investment was raised – it is said in the announcement.
In FP they claim that the real price of the renewal is from 20 to 30 % lower, that is “6 millions of euros”.
– However, the investor decided also to carry out the project of hydro tunnel in order to solve the water supply of Kotor with drinking water with additional 100 liters in a second, because of the extra water from that traffic line. We are asking the investor whether the project of several millions of euros is justified if we know that Kotor, instead of predicted additional amounts of drinking water will remain on the level, which was before the start of the carrying out of the project. That level, in optimistic option, can be increased, possibly, for just 10% – it is said in the announcement. In FP they think that the investor has made a serious failure, which, they point out, “someone has to explain to the citizens who in the end, as tax tributaries will pay the bill”.
