Gżira Residents Rally Against Endless Roadworks Impacting Businesses and Streets

Amidst mounting frustration, the residents of Gżira voiced their discontent yesterday evening, flooding the streets in protest against the extensive roadworks that have cast a shadow over their town.

The uproar stems from the year-long ordeal of enduring persistent roadworks, particularly on Manoel de Vilhena street, which has now transformed into a dusty desert due to the seemingly unending construction. Gżira’s Mayor, Conrad Borg Manche, lamented the dire situation, highlighting how the residential area’s vital thoroughfare had been under renovation for a staggering year and three months, with no end in sight.

As a consequence, local businesses lining the street have borne the brunt of this prolonged disruption, witnessing a significant downturn in their operations.With their operations severely hampered by the ongoing disruption, these enterprises find themselves caught in the crossfire of a situation that shows no signs of abating.
