AD and PD appeal to Prime Minister to stop Central Link Project

Alternattiva Demokratika (AD) and Partit Demokratiku (PD), two political parties in the process of uniting and joining forces, have appealed to the Prime Minister to put a stop to the Central Link Project. They stated that the solution to traffic congestion is a sustainable public transport system and not the inception of more road networks.

During a media conference at Attard, AD Chairperson Carmel Cacopardo, said the Government has an obligation to reflect on the usefulness or otherwise of such a Project. He said that the Central Link will destroy agricultural land and that the country does not need more roads but more sustainable mobility.

PD Representative, Dr Anthony Buttigieg, said that economic growth should not be taken as a measure of progress because the quality of life should take priority. He said the Central Link Project is ignoring the aspirations of residents that will be affected by the Project which will induce a greater use of private transport.
