Date March 24, 2011

Following the construction site handover by the Awarding Entity and the start of works, expropriation procedures were not yet completed by the Albanian Authorities.

The Works Supervisor ordered three suspensions that caused more than two years of delay in the works handover by the Contractor. Expropriation procedures have been fully completed at the end of 2011 and the conclusion of the contract took place in February 2013 with the final test.

Actions taken

The Embassy / Italian Development Cooperation Office (UTL) in Tirana has undertaken a series of actions to urge the Albanian authorities in charge to complete the lengthy expropriation procedures of the areas subjected to the construction of the landfill.
