Is this something that has happened before with the BLS top tunnel?No, it hasn't.
The old Lötschberg tunnel was alread rebuilt for many km when the request for additional money was placed. Thus Marti will get a large sum additionally. Marti is also requesting more money for the refurbishment of the Sensetalbahn. But this case is still open.
Still another case is the Weissenstein of BLSN, where Implenia won the contract but Porr went to the court and the judges decided that Implenia had more subcontractors than allowed and passed the contract on to Porr.
A similar thing had happened with an earlier construction lot of the Furka tunnel of MGI.
It's not an easy time for infrastructure managers in these days. Soon they will need more lawyers than engineers! This is not a positive development.
