„Winter is finally gone and the contractor started the works at full stretch. The contractor was not able to work during winter time due to the severe weather, the land was frozen to the more than 1 m depth, and that is why we have such a slowdown of construction.
The contractor is working at full strength now, without problems, there is a co-operation with the residents going on as well.
