Pavement’s debris dumped in valley – the material is expected to be collected
A video footage received by TVM recently shows contractor’s workers carrying out works in Triq il-Marfa at Mellieħa. The footage, filmed last Friday, shows the workers removing a pavement’s surface and throwing the debris at a nearby valley.
TVM requested clarification on this situation from Infrastructure Malta which said that the works consisted of the laying of new drains that gather street water to avoid flooding.
A spokesperson for Infrastructure Malta said that the authority spoke with the contractor on what appeared in the video, with the latter saying that the material is being kept at the side of the road to be wholly collected during the weekend.
The spokesperson added that Infrastructure Malta requested the contractor to ensure that no material is left at the side of the road, and that an inspection will be held when the work is completed so that in case of failure to meet his obligation, the contractor will be requested to take action.
The work for the rebuilding of the 1.4 kilometres Triq il-Marfa started a month ago. Infrastructure Malta stated that if the weather permits, the road will be almost ready before the end of May.
