The person who captured the moment, Godwin Magro, revealed that he went down to offer him a bottle of water as he worked in the scorching sun. This was when he revealed that he formed part of the local council. ‘A real meaning of lead by example’ said Magro.

The post was very well received by commenters who also praised Petroni’s commitment to keep the environment of the area clean and safe for the residents living there. 

‘Chris has been soldering on with this for months on end, cleaning up mess after mess himself doing the work others should have done. Yes he is a St Paul’s Bay councillor and there’s not enough praise one can give him’ one said. 

Others also pointed out that, despite the mindful gesture, he shouldn’t be the one to being doing so in the first place. Many urged people to be more aware of where they leave their trash and respect the terrain around them for others’ sake if not their own.

Changes to Comino bungalow plans approved by ERA and awaiting PA decision
Jul 16 2022 Share

The Environment and Resources Authority’s Board has officially approved the last assessment concerning the redevelopment of the bungalows and hotel at San Niklaw Bay and Santa Marija Bay in Comino.

The decision concerning the Appropriate and the Environmental Impact assessments came after the applicants made several changes to the original plans as it was requested by ERA.

The newly approved plan includes a reduction of the previously proposed footprint as well as containment of the development. The Planning Authority will now be handed the final assessment for further analysis. 

Developers made amendments to the original plans by reducing the proposed footprint by around 5,000 metres squared. One of the more massive changes include the restoration of land closer to the coast by shifting the building envelope inland and thus reducing footprint at San Niklaw.

There will also be the removal of a pier from the two originally proposed (which were around 15 to 17 metres), the reducing of bungalows to around 19, removing an outhouse as well as a concierge pavilion, and arranging associated footpaths.

Bridge in London wrapped in foil due to high temperatures

Jul 15 2022 Share

Hammersmith Bridge found in London, has been wrapped in foil to prevent it overheating as temperatures continue to rise in the UK.

Several engineers were seen covering the chains on the 135-year old bridge with silver-coloured foil to ensure it’s safety ahead what might be a record breaking heatwave.

In the evening a temperature control system worth about £420,000 is switched on. The measures are designed to keep the bridge open as temperatures in London could reach as high as 35°C .  The bridge, which is currently only accessible for pedestrians and cyclists, was closed two years ago due to the heat wave.

Sebastian Springer, the engineer who is leading the project, stated that “the safety of the public is our first priority.”

“The temperature control system allows us to track weather spikes and maintain a constant temperature. As we deal with the current extreme heat, we are also coming up with innovative solutions to keep the temperature within the threshold.”
