Lebanon's Council for Development and Reconstruction Friday said it has reversed its decision to award a contract to an unnamed company to build the Costa Brava landfill near Beirut, saying the costs would be too high.Tenders were first opened for contractors to submit bids to construct the Costa Brava landfill last month, and for the Burj Hammoud landfill earlier this week. CDR said after receiving bids for Burj Hammoud, it determined the Costa Brava offers were too high. CDR said in its statement that the annulment of the contract, which was signed on May 27, came after Thursday's meeting, 48 hours after opening tenders for the Burj Hammoud landfill.
