Gov­ern­ment look­ing into Mgarr park and ride ser­vice

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - NEWS -

The Gozo Min­istry has started look­ing into the pos­si­bil­ity of in­tro­duc­ing a park and ride ser­vice for the Mgarr port, and has is­sued a call for ap­pli­ca­tions for a study.

Gozo Min­is­ter Justyne Caru­ana said the gov­ern­ment is aware of the prob­lems Goz­i­tan stu­dents and work­ers face, hav­ing to cross over to Malta for their stud­ies or for work.

One such prob­lem, the min­is­ter said, is that there are not enough park­ing spa­ces.

“This is why the gov­ern­ment has pro­posed a park and ride so that dur­ing peak traf­fic times, Gozo would have this al­ter­na­tive sys­tem.”

Min­is­ter Justyne Caru­ana said this was one of the first projects the Gozo min­istry has be­gun work­ing on. The first phase is a study of the pro­ject it­self, the de­mand, and op­er­a­tional rec­om­men­da­tions of the park and ride.

The public call was is­sued on 22 Septem­ber and closes on 13 Oc­to­ber. A public con­sul­ta­tion must take place as part of this ex­er­cise, she said.
