Gozo’s tunnel or bridge link still being discussed 2 years on
|Email item||Print item||
Readers Letter: “Two years on and I note that there are still discussions as to whether Gozo should have a fixed tunnel or bridge link. With the country in hock to the EU to the tune of 7 Billion Euros, such projects, which would cost millions, must be out of the question as well as being an engineering challenge.
“I spent many years studying the inter-island link, in conjunction with the GBC and GTA. We all agreed that there was a greater need for a fixed-wing airlink between a lengthened airstrip at the Heliport. MEPA also supported this, as did the Malta Labour Party.
The cost of such an extension, using the excellent passenger terminal (now in ruin), would be around 300,000 Euros and would significantly improve access for well-heeled tourists and entrepreneurs from abroad. This would boost Gozo’s own GDP and provide more local jobs.”
