Now the construction company spoke up. " Of course we can’t let that sit on our hands" the managing director and the construction manager contradict all the accusations made by some of the local councillors. "We are definitely not working too slowly, after all, we are absolutely within the present construction schedule with completion in december 2018:" he also does not want to let stand the claim that the construction team is overtaxed. " They are by no means inexperienced workers who are not able to perform their tasks according to the regulations. The foreman of the crew has been working in the civil engineering industry for ten years and is highly trained. However, it is not surprising that there is uncertainty when constant changes are made by the municipality, which are then discarded several times. It is obvious that the execution of these frequent requests for changes takes time, as often different materials have to be procured."
The managing director also described as absolutely destructive the fact that to date there has been no one clearly in charge of the team. " Planners, mayors, residents – everyone wants to have something to say. The given plans are often not realizable because of the local conditions. Many things have not been thought about beforehand. All this leads to more work, uncertainty and unnecessary loss of time", he continues. " The solution of such planning mistakes is extremely delicate . Only those who cannot understand such a thing will call the work amateurish."
The partial takeover of construction work by the municipality was also often a cause for concern. "Often the municipal workers are in our way, which costs us a lot of time. It was not uncommon for the exit to be blocked by their vehicles, so we had to use the detour route in the residential area to transport the goods away. Otherwise, there was no requirement not to use the goethestrabe", the manager contradicts corresponding statements in the town council. "The damage indicated was definitely already present in the beginning and resulted from earlier construction errors in the construction of the strabe. Moreover, not only our construction vehicles have used the detour route, but also the municipal workers", he continues. "We also could not drive with the construction vehicles over the dredged strabe, because flat lying cables and lines would have been damaged otherwise."
This is another reason why the construction company feels unfairly treated. In the youngest council meeting she was also accused of damaging the road by her vehicles.
