Government looking into Mgarr park and ride service
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.
