Triq l-Għarnuq in Fgura is first among 120 roads to be re-built from scratch
Triq l-Għarnuq fil-Fgura is the first road out of 120 roads which will be completely rebuilt this year, as part of the project of 700 residential roads on which works will be carried out over the next seven years at an investment of 700 million Euro. These 120 residential roads will cost 53.5 million Euro.
This week, work started on 31 residential roads in Malta. The Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, Ian Borg said that later this year, Infrastructure Malta will issue its second tender for these roadworks, as 100 million Euro has been allocated for this project.
Dr Borg said that priority will be given to 160 roads which need to be rebuilt from scratch, such as Triq l-Għarnuq.
The roads which require major work were identified in consultation with the local councils. The Parliamentary Secretary responsible for local councils, Silvio Parnis said that the councils will continue to be given the same amount of funds which they have always been given.
