In­ad­e­quate bus shel­ter in Ċirkewwa

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

Any­one trav­el­ling from Ċirkewwa can no­tice the rusty bus shel­ter, if one could call it as such, si­t­u­ated right out­side the ferry ter­mi­nal. This bus “shel­ter” is ab­so­lutely not ad­e­quate to ful­fil its pur­pose in any weather con­di­tion es­pe­cially dur­ing the wet months since one is left ex­posed to any­thing and ev­ery­thing na­ture hurls your way.

Be­ing ex­posed to tor­ren­tial rain and sea spray through the shel­ter’s gap from the front as well as from the back is not at all a pleas­ant sit­u­a­tion for any per­son, all the while wait­ing for the pub­lic trans­port to ar­rive. To add in­sult to in­jury, the roof of the shel­ter al­lows water to drip through the gaps be­tween the metal. Due to this, the benches are left drenched, thus not even al­low­ing the pos­si­bil­ity to sit while wait­ing. This shel­ter is not only used by stu­dents and one can­not for­get about the elders who use this ser­vice and need to use the benches to rest. Tourists may get quite a bad im­pres­sion when mak­ing use of such a bus shel­ter as well.

The GUG or­gan­i­sa­tion has pointed out this prob­lem more than once by send­ing sev­eral emails to the au­thor­i­ties and press re­leases, but no ac­tion has yet been taken. GUG also had a meet­ing with the Min­is­ter for Trans­port Dr Ian Borg in Oc­to­ber 2017, but again no ac­tion was taken. The or­gan­i­sa­tion hopes that these com­plaints will not fall on deaf ears and that ac­tion is taken im­me­di­ately.
