Lebanon's Council for Development and Reconstruction said Friday it has reversed its decision to award a contract to an unidentified company to construct the Costa Brava landfill south of Beirut, claiming the costs would be too high.Construction of the Costa Brava landfill was put out to tender last month, with the Burj Hammoud project following earlier this week. The CDR said after receiving bids from contractors for the Burj Hammoud landfill that it determined the Costa Brava offers were too high. The CDR also said in its statement that the annulment of the contract, which was signed on May 27, came after Thursday's meeting, just 48 hours after the Burj Hammoud landfill was put out to tender.
