Balzan trees: Minister responds but fails to mention plans

A group of residents from Balzan are concerned that their locality will lose more trees in the proposed infrastructral project in the Valley Road, Balzan.

In a statement they said they had asked Minister of Transport Ian Borg to publish project plans but in a long reply, the Minister did not reveal any of the plans while explaining the importance of this project.

In another statement, the residents complained about the way Balzan’s Local Council was forced to decide on the project without seeing project plans proposed by Transport Malta.

They are concerned that this project will add more traffic in the area and thus increase the levels of pollution and traffic intensity.

Last Thursday, Minister Ian Borg announced that the Valley Road, Balzan will be re-built.
