At a cost of nearly €1 million, the 450-meter-long road connecting Victoria and Żebbuġ in Gozo has undergone extensive reconstruction and resurfacing. Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri officially inaugurated the revitalized Triq L-Imgħallem and announced the successful completion of the road improvement project.
Camilleri emphasized that attention would now turn towards constructing a new junction connecting Triq ta’ Wara s-Sur and Triq Wied Sara, with the aim of permanently eliminating a traffic bottleneck.
In addition to resurfacing Triq l-Imgħallem, the project included the reconstruction of sidewalks, enhancements to parking spaces and bus stops, restoration of rubble walls, and the installation of new water and sewage pipelines, telecommunications infrastructure, and street lighting.
Furthermore, newly constructed culverts have been implemented to gather rainwater from the Ċittadella and Għolja ta’ Gelmus areas, directing it towards Wied il-Grazzja, where it can be utilized for agricultural irrigation purposes.
The entire undertaking was conducted under the diligent oversight of the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage, according to the ministry.
