The should have thought of this before.I'm one who typically opposes corporate welfare.
But I must admit, in this case, the level of hassle for some business owners is atypical, and a real hardship.
I don't think government should hand out compensation in these types of cases to every owner/lessee, it would set a terrible precedent that would burden future projects.
At the same time there has to some allocation for owners or residents uniquely inconvenienced in way that poses a real burden.
In the project there are always things that lead to slower production or more disruption or less cost.
Whenever cost were saved to increase disruption - that should have been known during design and a fraction of the cost savings used as compensation.
