Kraków Zabłocie Station looks terrible. It looks like a cheap garage with that roof.

It is just more like train stop with two tracks and two platforms yet it has a roof? Wow, there is really no point to complain here...

Offers opened in the tender for the tunnel in Łódź!

The best offer is from a consortium of the Turkish company Gülermak and local Mosty Łódź. All the offers are below the anticipated budget!

It's not that there will be no issues - the winning offer is too cheap (more than 30% below the budget), so the winning consortium will have to explain themselves - but the other offers are not much more expensive, distributed more or less equally between the Mosty-Gülermak offer and the budget, and the winner is a consortium of two reliable companies, so there should be no problem with that.

That winner's offer is actually close to be 40% below the budget...
IMO their offer should be rejected right away.

Why? It seems all the offers are more or less equally distributed between the cheapest one (1.36 mln PLN) and the most expensive one (2.15 mln PLN) being close to but still below the budget. It's not like all the offers had more or less similar price and one was much cheaper which you recognize then as scam. We have had such a case with a motorway which started to be built by a Chinese company (that nobody knew) which offered much a lower price - and it had to be chosen according to the law from that times. At one moment they said they have no more money and they will not continue the construction, and nothing could be done with it but doing a new tender and choosing a new company. It was before the law allowing to reject the offer with an exceptionally low price was introduced. Actually, it was introduced exactly because of this event. But it's not such a case now, the price isn't exceptionally low.

All the companies from the offers are known, reliable companies, which have already realized investments of this size and did not fail. Plus Mosty Łódź is a local company, which is advantageous from the city perspective.

The price may depend on different factors, like whether the company already has TBM machines that could be used for the construction after an adaptation, or they have to build them from scratch.

I am with Mosty Łódź as it's a local company.

I don't care who is a winner, local or not. I think price is very low comparing to budget.
First two consortiums are low bidders and they should be screened or rejected.
BTW, you have just answered partially yourself comparing it to the situation with road projects and that Chinese company (COVEC) that was trying to build stretch of A2 between Lodz and Warsaw. One of the reason with some problematic road projects was also rapidly rising cost of materials which of course could'n be in anyway compensated with such an extremely low bid price...
Would be good to learn a lesson from that and not to repeat the same mistakes with railway projects...

Yes. But equally well, you can say that the budget was overestimated.

I wonder how more expensive it would be to mantain the old, perfect style of Elf's front instead of that crap.
