Minister for Public Works and Planning Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi, together with Mayor of Naxxar Anne Marie Muscat Fenech Adami, inaugurated the renovation of an open space known as ‘Ġnien Santa Marija tal-Anġli’ in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq in the limits of Naxxar.
This open space serves as a recreational space for the community as well as the families who visit.
The space saw maintenance works taking place in the recreation zone for kids as well as the placement of new pavements, new lighting systems which consume less energy as well as a new CCTV camera system.
Extensive work on the security of the zone was also done to avoid the potential for vandalism in the zone.
The Minister thanked the workers of the Department of Public Works for their effort and hard works, as they gave the space a new refurbished look and made it safer for all.
He expressed how such projects show that the government is using all the available resources to be a shoulder for the local councils to carry out projects in our communities.
On her part, the mayor expressed her own appreciation for the workers, saying that after many years of vandalism and abandonment, the garden can once again be enjoyed by the public.
Present for the inauguration were the General Director for the Public Works Department, Architect Stephen Bonello, as well as various architects and workers from the department who worked on the project.
