Works being carried out in preparation for summer at the Blue Flag beach of Ramla, were visited by the Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana.
The Minister explained that from this year the beach now falls under the responsibility of the Ministry for Gozo.
Having obtained the necessary permits from the competent authorities, a walkway has been installed across the sand, and landscaping and maintenance has been carried out, she said.
Dr Caruana said that the largest investment was made in Triq Ghajn Hosna – the road leading down from Xaghra to Ramla.She spoke about the cooperation of the Xaghra Local Council, by virtue of an agreement with the Ministry on the work being carried out. Another tender is now to be issued by the Ministry for the remaining work to be completed.
The work on Triq Ghajn Hosna, which for years has been in a state of disrepair, will now mean that the journey for visitors down to Ramla Bay will be an enjoyable one, said the Minister.
All of this work on roads in localities across the island is part of Project Gozo, said Dr Caruana.
