Nationalist MP Darren Carabott took to Facebook to highlight the state the Marsa bridge is currently in, after it became known for abuse, illegalities and vandalism.
The bridge, which was inaugurated one year ago for around €3.5 million, still became an area for the abuse despite CCTV cameras.
‘How can it be that we see them there and no action is taken by who is responsible’, asked the MP. ‘How is someone taking drugs beneath a CCTV camera not found and given the help required whilst who is trafficking it not feeling the hand of enforcement?’.
Carabott said that he had discussed the matter in parliament last May, with the response by a Minister being that only 5 acts of vandalism were reported, with the vandalism fixed immediately. Only one person was taken to court over vandalism.
Carabott however alleged that, this morning, he found syringes and bottles used for drug abuse, rubbish and foul smells, inoperable elevators and vandalism.
‘All this in a residential area, where families live with children. And two minutes away lie a church and a centre where people meet up.’ He called on for action to take place so that the bridge is used to cross the road safely, instead of taking a path down to drug abuse.
