At the Lugoj-Deva highway site on Tuesday, Transport Minister Felix Stroe said that companies that have no proved track records of being able to carry out a contract for organisational reasons, lack of equipment or work supervision, might be placed on a so-called 'black list' so that they will no longer get more work than they can handle.
According to Stroe, there are currently companies that have won contracts fair and square but have not properly assessed their possibilities of executing the projects in question. "They have earned them fair and square but without properly assessing their strengths, their possibilities. They rushed to bid, probably offering lower, unrealistic prices, and, lo and behold they are overcome in terms of available strength, organisation, machinery, management skills to supervise the works, which we will no longer allow to happen. We will no longer allow a company that has no proved track records of having the organisational and management skills to supervise the works, the needed pieces of equipment (...) to get more contracts than it can handle," said Stroe.
He mentioned that the law is not "wholly favourable to this concept," but an attempt will be made to implement it. Stroe on Tuesday went to the Lugoj - Deva highway construction site, where the constructors and head of the National Road Infrastructure Administration Corporation (CNAIR) Stefan Ionita unveiled the latest developments in the works. Thus, batch 4 could be ready in March - April 2018, and batch 3 in September 2018. Stroe demanded that the works on the latter be completed on May 31, 2018.
