Minister hopes Cospicua waterfront works will be completed by September
Infrastructure Minister Joe Mizzi this afternoon visited rehabilitation works in the Dock 1 area of Cospicua and said the new government was determined to ensure that project timeframes were met.
Mr Mizzi was briefed by members of the Grand Harbour Regeneration Corporation, led by CEO Chris Paris. He said later that unless there were problems with the tendering procedure, the much delayed project should be completed by September.
Mr Paris said work on Xatt Ir-Rizq has been completed but, he recalled, works on the Cospicua Waterfront had been stopped when an Italian contractor was dismissed.
He said that paving works at Paolino Vassalli square should be ready by the end of this month and the focus will then be on the road to it.
Water works related to the project are under way and will then be followed by work on the dock head . Tenders for a new garden will be published next week and it is hoped that everything will be ready in September.
