Following the strong reaction of GRTU (See GRTU Press Release dated 25.05.11) in representation of all Cargo Hauliers (Burdnara) operating to and from the Grand Harbour, a fact finding and action resolution meeting was held between GRTU Malta Chamber of SMEs and the Valletta Gateway Terminals (VGT) at the GRTU premises in Valletta today.
The VGT team was led by Mr Wai Kiong Lai – VGT Chief Officer and VGT terminal managers, while GRTU was represented by President Paul Abela, Director General Vince Farrugia and Burdnara representatives. The currant traffic congestion and logistical problems affecting the Port area were discussed in detail and an action programme was agreed so that action will be immediately implemented to relieve the congestion problems. It is expected that the planned action will tackle bottle necks over the next few weeks.
The two sides also agreed to meet again within a month to further resolve problems that may still occur and make joint recommendations to Government for additional issues that may require action at a higher – Malta Transport and Ministry – levels.
