Infrastructure Malta told platform TVM News that in the past 4 years up to 2022, 75% of roads which required rebuilding or urgent works were completed.

When pooled together, the roads amass up to 500km worth of operable road infrastructure. Around €1.2 million had to be used out of contractors’ pockets due to the works not being up to Infrastructure Malta standards in the six months he’s spent as chief executive. 

1,057 roads were completed as of 2018. The work started during that year, Falzon said, with Infrastructure Malta’s first year of work being 2019. The aim is to reach the goal of 1,400 roads by 2024/2025, he told TVM News. 

In 2022, IM rebuilt 200 roads through the investment of €70 million. Pooled together, these roads amass around 60km.

Following them closely were La Voix Harmonies, Valentina Rossi’s Golden Buzzer performance who brought to life one of the most iconic tracks from ‘The Greatest Showman’ to the Malta’s Got Talent Stage.

Finally, the judges reached a deadlock between 10-year-old adorable DJ Sheron and the majestic queen of drag Trihanna Wilde. Emotions were high as both performers had massive backing and outright deserved to be in the final themselves. 

In the end, Sheron won the audience vote, making him the last semi-finalist to secure a place in the final. The night showed other majestic talents who all gave their all and wowed the crowd with their own particular disciplines.

The MUT does not approve or back the hunting exhibition in schools

Jan 29 2023 Share

The Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) believes that an exhibition on hunting in schools will never counteract all the positive work carried out by educators and schools towards a culture of conservation and respect of all living species.

In a press statement, the union believes that since only education can bring about positive changes, schools cannot ignore controversial themes such as hunting. “No static exhibition promoting hunting will influence students who are used to classroom discussions and practices promoting respect towards nature and its conservation.”, said the MUT.

The MUT invited educators and schools to continue to showcase the real effects of hunting whilst promoting the message towards the conservation of nature and respect of all living species. The MUT believes that all organizations which work towards the conservation of nature should be given the same platform by the Education Ministry to promote their work in schools.

Later, the union issued a clarification following the misinterpretations of its position regarding the hunting exhibition and clearly stated that it does not approve or back the hunting exhibition in schools.

The MUT continued saying that tt has always condemned any killing of living species and its promotion in schools and that the union has always supported the work carried out to conserve nature and living species and urges educators to pursue with their teaching in schools to show the real effects of hunting.
