The Police has confirmed that no permits for the loading or unloading of containers at Quarry Wharf have been issued in the recent past.

They also explained that the Valletta Police Station did not have any record of such a permit being issued. It is to be noted that it is against the law to park a container in the street without prior permission.

This transpired in the replies to questions that had sent to the Police following a road incident in the Quarry Wharf last  July.
