Direct access for tourists to Republic Street

GRTU has this week written to the Minister for Transport and
Infrastructure Hon. Joe Mizzi, to bring to his attention the situation being
endured by business owners in Republic Street. GRTU explained that they feel
discriminated due to the fact that for the last years tourists coming to Malta
by cruise liners have been pushed directly into Merchants Street through a
direct transport system and the lift.

GRTU has complained about the situation on several
occasions and the reason given to us was always that Republic Street is being
avoided due to the extensive works being carried out as part of the project. At
the time in fact the pavement was not completed but today Republic Street is
once again fit and is able to welcome tourists. GRTU emphasized that having
spent so much money on this project the very entrance of Republic Street now is
in itself fascinating and a tourist attraction, encompassing the world famous
Renzo Piano Parliament as well as the view of the freshly excavated fortress.

 

GRTU therefore called for a shuttle service from the
cruise liner terminal to the bus terminal to be provided immediately with the
introduction of the new arrangement provided by Arriva.
