Wied Fulija, a former landfill in Zurrieq, has been transformed into a green landscape for the public to enjoy. With an investment of around € 4.5 Million, the space has become home for well over 43,000 trees and bushes whilst also spanning some of Zurrieq’s most panoramic Cliffside’s. The initiative in favour of biodiversity spans about 90 acres, with a water reservoir installed to guarantee the sustainability of the project.
Inaugurating the project, Prime Minister Robert Abela stated that the landscape was rehabilitated more closely to its natural state. Environment Minister Aaron Farrugia, also speaking at the inauguration, stated that future generations will not see the landfill full of waste but instead will enjoy the fresh air and natural aesthetic which Wied Fulija will provide.
