An €8 million project to rebuild Triq L-Imġarr in Gozo is finally on its way one-and-a-half years after it was closed due to the dangers it posed to traffic.
Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri announced the news yesterday noting that progress has been made over the past six weeks to rebuild and restore the road to a good and safe standard.
“Over the past six weeks we’ve solved geological problems, structural problems and have started work on the road,” Camilleri said.
“(The road) is finally getting the attention it deserves, after being left in a poor state for many years despite high volumes of traffic.”
The road that connects Mġarr and Nadur was a black spot for accidents and was closed one-and-a-half years ago to be worked on.
The project will cost a total of €8 million which also includes works on Triq Sant’ Antnin in Għajnsielem.
“A few more days of work and this will be complete. We’ll continue to work on more roads in Nadur,” the Minister said.
