Dangerous potholes in roads around Qala – Readers Letter
|Email item||Print item||
"We reside in Qala, I must comment at this stage that in Qala, bottom of Ta' Cini Street, leading down the hill towards Dahlet Qorrot and Nadur, is very badly damaged, due to the heavy rains I presume.
Needless to say turning right towards Dahlet Qorrot is diabolical, the potholes at this moment in time are dangerous, not to mention the damage I sustain to the car every time we drive around the area to the bottom of Dahlet, retuning back to Ta' Cini Street uphill is even worse.What we would like to know, since we pay road tax in your country, is when are these roads going to be repaired? One particular area has been in a bad state for months on end, with a hole as big as the black hole of Calcutta.I believe the situation has been reported by residents to Qala Local Council, but to no avail. What I would really like to know now is how can I put in a claim without having to seek legal advice for the damage to my practically new vehicle caused by the very bad and dangerous roads in that area?One final remark – feedback from various tourists about another area of Gozo, is that the road in a built up area leading towards the red beach is the same."
