PD trying to create doubts over Gozo tunnel studies – Gozo Chamber of Commerce

The Gozo Chamber of Commerce said that the PD (Democratic Party) has tried to create doubts over the validity of the studies which the Chamber had carried out in 2015 together with Transport Malta on the connectivity project between Gozo and Malta.

In a statement, the Chamber said that the PD had tried to cast aspersions without giving any valid reasons.

It said that the study by the Gozo Chamber of Commerce was prepared by leading experts in the country who built their contribution on other foreign experts with long experience in this field, and on studies prepared by major international companies. It said that this study considers a number of other connectivity options between the two islands, and concluded that the tunnel offers the best economic potential together with financial sustainability.

The Gozo Chamber of Commerce continued by saying that this has led the Government to commission other studies on the technical viability and social impact of the tunnel project.

It urged all parties who are taking part in the debate about this important project to be objective in their contributions and to do so in a constructive way based on facts instead of fears and unsubstantiated doubts.
