Road maintenance during the winter – A “river” of complaints about tenders, there are a lot of contracts still unsigned
Many road axes risk maintenance during the winter season, as new contracts have not yet been signed with the Albanian Road Authority. The reason for this situation are the complaints filed by various economic operators with the Public Procurement Commission, regarding the procedures followed by the contracting authority. According to official data, only in the period October 19-November 19, 7 complaints were filed, covering over 17 different road segments.
Meanwhile, the highest body in their review, which is the CPC, has not yet issued a decision that could allow the continuation of tender procedures with the criteria set by ARA or their redevelopment, with amended criteria. Roads Korçë-Ersekë, Boboshticë-Dardhë, Berat-Çorovodë, Rrëshen-Shpal, are some of the axes that are a complaint process. In conditions when these contracts have not been signed yet, the intervention of the Albanian Road Authority is required, but this is not a normal situation that can guarantee the maintenance of roads.
