€ 1 billion for 170 kilometers of motorways through difficult terrain is not bad though.

The problem with most megaprojects is cost overrun. They initially make low estimates, to justify the amount of tax money spend. Nearly all megaprojects have (severe) cost overruns, most notably the Big Dig (which was initially estimated WAY too low) and for some Dutch examples, Betuwe freight line, HSL-South, North-south subway in Amsterdam and Randstadrail, all of which had huge delays and cost overruns.

DanMs, I am sure that Basha is prone to taking some tax-payers money for himself and Bechtel-Enka was already it other countries involved in corruptive affairs, however there most be some more to that!

Fist: They have published the indictment in the press FIRST which is not a normal judicial procedure.
Second: Next year there are elections so there is this "little" possibility that a friend that knows a friend in PS wanted to weaken PD position or strengthen the PS position by making it public at this time.
Third: Taking the first and second into account I hope that they have not stolen that much money but less and that the figures are shown to be higher to sound more bombastic.

In Croatia Bechtel was involved in such corruptive affair and it was also heavily criticized for the poor quality of some of the work, if I am not mistaken! Maybe there is still for us to learn on their work! Maybe we will have shinny crash-barriers but when the first car hits them they will brake into peaces or something like in Croatia!

Lets see what happens next and how the chieftains react!

They claim that Bechtel-Enka gave money to Basha to win the bid and that they showed it as that the money was shown as the actual cost of the project!

So something like nearly 1/4 of the project price was for a bribe?

That is what they say as far as I understand it, but again, as I said, they probably made it sound a way much more bombastic...or maybe not, everything is possible!

I hope it's a lie because 230 mln. € is a lot of money...
