BSJP law company succeeds in regard with the construction of the S-7 express road

BSJP Brockhuis Jurczak Prusak Sp. k. law company has led the Spanish company Dragados to a success, due to which Dragados will be able to continue the construction of the S-7 express road.

In a tender procedure, Dragados have submitted the lowest tender for the construction of the S-7 express road, however, in the name of savings allegedly required by the government, the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) has cancelled the procedure.

The joint-stock company Dragados S.A. has disagreed with the decision of the GDDKiA and lodged a protest to the National Chamber of Appeal (KIO), demanding the GDDKiA be ordered to change its decision, which would result in the procedure being continued.

However, in a decision of 1 April 2012, the Chamber has dismissed the appeal by Dragados S.A. In such a situation, Dragados S.A. have decided to lodge a complaint to the Regional Court in Warsaw. In its decision of 29 May, the Court has agreed with Dragados S.A. and changed the judgment of KIO, ordering the GDDKiA to annul the cancellation of the tender procedure.

Due to the decision, the procedure shall continue and, most probably, an agreement on the construction of the S-7 express road, running from the end of the planned Radom ring-road to the boarder of Mazowieckie province, should be concluded shortly.

On behalf of the BSJP Brockhuis Jurczak Prusak Sp.k. law company, the case was run by: legal counsel Jarosław Sroka (partner) and legal counsel Krzysztof Kowalczyk (partner).
