Project status

The project is currently under implementation, with the following results reported so far:

   LB is facing problems with the elaboration of the technical project and no real progress has been registered in implementation of the project activities for which LB is responsible.

   LB developed the public procurement (simplified procedure) for the awarding of technical design services and works execution contract for the objective "Technical-material basis for increasing the speed of response in emergency situations”.

     The handover of the technical project documentation by the contractor to the LB is expected to be finalized until the end of this year.

     Regarding the execution of works, this activity has not started yet, LB expected works to begin soon after the obtaining of the building permit. Being aware that there is a certain risk to not finalize the construction works within the period of project implementation – 29.03.2022 , LB intends to submit a request for modification of the subsidy contract – prolongation of the project implementation period.

Addendum no.3 to the Subsidy Contract no. 42943/22.03.2017 and Co-financing contract no. 42944/22.03.2017 was signed on 25.06.2020 in order to reallocate funds between partners.

Currently, LB updated the feasibility study and will re-launch the procurement procedure for the technical project as well as the works execution.
