I'm at a loss for words for now. I need to catch my breath. Follow the posts to above to the whole picture of this disaster. Just crazy.

"Stop for contractor to the Hertsö field - for the fourth time​

Once again, Luleå municipality's procurement of a contractor for the Hertsö field is stopped. This means that work on setting up the new industrial area will be delayed.​

The project manager for Luleå Industripark, Robert Eriksson, states that the municipality will take back the procurement in order to conduct a new tender review.

According to the original schedule, which has broken down several times, the contractor awarded the contract for the Hertsö field should have started work in June last year. However, a series of appeals have thrown off the schedule. The municipality's tender has been appealed several times by the construction companies BDX and Nyab, which are competing to prepare the land for the Hertsö Field, part of Lulea.

Here are the details of this last farce:

Give yourselves all the time in the world in the Lulea administration. There is no need to rush. Check everything carefully this time. Buy new calculators to be on the safe side. It's not like some companies are waiting to build and burning money in the process. It's best to take a holiday first and then meet again at your leisure to discuss the fifth round over a cup of tea.

Follow the link under my post. I only had a quick look and now I don't feel like it anymore. Here's a log from that day but I don't know if it's the right resort. The log above comes from there but has nothing to do with building. It is the municipal council.
It doesn't really matter who's building, the main thing is that they finally get on with it.

To create a little more bureaucratic confusion:
Look at what date is mentioned in the head of the same protocol:

WORKING COMMITTEE OF THE MUNICIPAL COUNCIL
Time Monday, 6 May 2024 at 08:15 a.m.
Location Meeting room on the 9th floor of the town hall
1715783554652.png


Perhaps this is already the current status?
I don't know and I'm not sure if I should keep looking for pass A38*. Maybe I'll just wait for the local press to write:
Construction is underway, again, on the Hertsön industrial area. It goes on!

That is a great document. Well done guys.
@Rayster @Gvan could you post both these documents (refer to Page 47 of this https://www.domstol.se/globalassets...rksamhetsberattelser/2022-activity-report.pdf) over at HC to calm their frustrations down and the conspiracy theories. They seem to ask the same questions over there all the time

I'm banned at HC........LOL

Also let them know our request for priority was denied the day after it was received as per other posts on these threads
