Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri pledged renewed attention to the state of Gozo’s roads as he inaugurated the resurfacing of Triq ta’ Gajdoru in the eastern end of Xagħra today.

At a press conference held at the street, on which works were concluded today, Mr Camilleri said that there was an urgent need to address the state of roads in Gozo, so that the island’s roads would be at par with Malta’s own.

He promised that he would be ensuring that the ministry would coordinate roadworks efficiently to ensure that they are completed on time, as well as to minimise the inconvenience caused to Gozitans and visitors to the island alike.

Mr Camilleri said that the road was resurfaced at a cost of €40,000 and was one of various roads whose upgrading is being financed by the Gozo Ministry. The adjacent Triq il-Kumittiva was resurfaced a few months ago at a cost of €34,000, whereas work on Triq tal-Masri, at the northern periphery of Xagħra, will start next month, and is set to cost €55,000.

He also announced that the tender for the completion of Marsalforn Road was published yesterday, stating that the project was set to cost around €1.2 million.
