Triq Santa Marija in Marsalforn resurfaced

Triq Santa Marija in the area close to Qbajjar in Marsalforn has been resurfaced at a cost of some 150,000 euro, as part of a number of infrastructural works being carried out in the locality with a total investment in excess of 15 million euro.

During an on-site visit, Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri stated that Triq Santa Marija had been forgotten and crying out for structural intervention for long years, and had been allowed to deteriorate into a pitiful state as a consequence.  The Minister added that for this reason, the road is being given a new surface so that both residents and visitors to Marsalforn will have the kind of road they deserve.

Minister Camilleri explained that the Government was committed to continuing to improve the tourist area in Marsalforn. The Minister added that the masterplan for Marsalforn waterfront, with a three million euro investment, includes lava/porfido paving in Triq il-Port, Triq il-Forn, Triq San Ġużepp, Triq ir-Rabat and Misraħ Sir Michelangelo Refalo, as well as installation of new lighting and street furniture to give the area a contemporary look. The Minister reminded that as soon as the Marsalforn Menqa was completed, work picked up on the waterfront, adding that this work will be completed before the summer.

Minister Camilleri added that roads leading to this area are also being upgraded, as well as two roads linking Marsalforn Bay to the rest of Gozo. In fact, reconstruction will soon start on the road leading from Victoria to Marsalforn as well as on the road from Xaghra to Marsalforn, with another global investment of some ten million euro.
