Inadequate bus shelter in Ċirkewwa
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.
