Agencies, which were checking the COVEC, did not notice that the Chinese consortium has already failed in one construction in Poland - says RMF FM. Three years ago the company won the tender for the construction of hotel Gromada in Cracow. The pattern was similar to that of the A2 projects. The Chinese did not deliver on time, had too few workers and they changed subcontractors like gloves. The result? To finish the project Gromada had to add extra 20 million zlotys.
"The cost of the construction, if we close it, will be 40 percent higher than that which was negotiated. I would never again fall into a trap of price" - says the Gromada president, Jan Blonski.
The same problems arose during the construction of A2. The government will now have to pay a fortune to finish the road ahead of Euro 2012.
