Over 1,000 farmers will benefit from improved rural road access across Gozo, Parliamentary Secretary for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights, Clint Camilleri, has said.

On the completion of the Triq Wied l-Infern, Camilleri told a press conference in Zebbug Gozo that the road was one of 16 rural roads benefiting from an over € 11 million joint European Union and Maltese government investment in rural instructure across the country.

These funds have supported road building in the Gozitan localities Sannat, Nadur, Xaghra, Kercem, Gharb and Zebbug.

Camilleri explained that the developments would make the activities of farmers more efficient, in addition to measures outlined by the Common Agricultural Policy to improve farming practices and soil diversity.
