Sounds like a potential legal mess which usually causes long delays

Sounds like they let out contracts for greatly reduced prices and the contractors can't finish the works......

No explaination just a statement about what is happening. In most ORGANISED countries penalties are put into the contract if work is not completed by the date in the contract. Another half baked way of doing business.

You beat me to it,

The Mayor did not, TPN notes, give a specific timeframe or window for when residents could expect the work to continue, citing the difficult bidding process.

A lot of explaining of the problems by the Mayor but very little in the way of solving the problems put forth.  I don't want to hear a whiny, 'it's difficult'.  I want to hear concrete solutions and concrete finish dates.

The longer it goes on the more cash???  personally these problems are just big for him to handle it was the same for the brother and the person before them. Fixing isn't what they really want beautification but the end result is the same " flooding " thereafter lets do it all over again!

All the same family. Not in their positions because of their skillset but because of the family they belong to.

 

Therein lies the major problem.

Sex tourists, and cheap package holiday makers from developing countries are the only ones that will put up with such poor infrastructure.

By 2025 it will probably means the budgets have been frittered away and therefore new big budgets will appear.

Likely contracts that were very poorly negotiated. And why not build in huge penalties for late costs? 

Because deliberate delays caused by unions or mafia or competition could lead to sabotage. It's said that major London projects including Wembley pay millions of pounds to stop 'delays'
