Infrastructure Malta (IM) has commenced its process of cutting down carob trees along Triq San Ġwann Bosco in Dingli just a day after the permit to do so was issued by the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA).

Aggrieved citizens are entitled to a 30 day period in which they can appeal the authority’s decision.

These carob trees are being uprooted in preparation for a road alignment project set to connect two minor roads – Daħla tas-Sienja and Sqaq il-Museum.

Dingli residents have voiced their concerns about said project due to the fact that it threatens to destroy fields, rooms used for farming, and a number of old carob trees.

Moviment Graffitti announced that the cutting down of said trees has been temporarily stalled, as residents went on site to voice their objections.
