Infrastructure Malta has shifted the blame of the Chadwick Lake road collapse on the Energy and Water Agency.
This comes following the news of the damage that occurred in the said road during the heavy rainfall that the island has been experiencing.
“The section of the road that collapsed falls within the remit of the Energy and Water Agency, not Infrastructure Malta,” an IM spokesperson clarified.
“We only rebuilt part of a bridge at Chadwick Lakes, which is a distance away from the road collapse area and was not impacted by it,” they concluded.
Earlier this morning, the Mtarfa local council warned drivers of the collapse, appealing “to be careful if one is driving through the area.”
Later on, the local council notified relevant authorities, and then issued another update saying that “the authorities have closed off the said road”.
The Energy and Water Agency has since responded.
Malta has recently been hit by a series of storms and heavy rainfall that has been leading to many instances of flooded roads and damage inflicted on infrastructure.
