Quarry activity near temples

I refer to the article ‘Unesco raises alarm over quarry activity near temples’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, September 2).

Enforcement officers from the Planning Authority have in­spec­ted the quarry at Siġġiewi and found no evidence of any ongoing or recent excavations. Core sampling had been undertaken prior to mid-July.

There is no equipment related to excavations on site. Officers had previously inspected the site on August 10, and there is no evidence of any excavations activity since.

Editorial note: The photograph that was published in The Sunday Times of Malta with the article in question on September 2 clearly shows that fresh rock excavation and core testing had been carried out at the Tal-Magħluq quarry in Siġġiewi.
