The Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport and Communication in a statement today said that the main road from Mgarr Harbour to Victoria in Gozo, is now completely open for traffic. The work cost €12 million, 85% of which was funded by the European Union.
The 3km of road is in between another two stretches that had been upgraded previously, those between Mgarr Harbour and Xewkija and from Victoria to San Lawrenz,
The Ministry said that work on the road had taken slightly longer than originally scheduled due to archaeological discoveries. Work had then had to be halted, for the findings to be studied and preserved.
An integral part of the project was the replacement of water and electricity services.
The installation of crash barriers, traffic signs and road markings are still to be finalised.
