Press Release: SME Chamber welcomes reactivation of Bank moratorium possibility
18 January 2021
FURTHER EXTENSIONS WILL BE NECESSARY The Malta Chamber of SMEs greatly welcomes the extension granted...
Government must admit the CVA was a failure. It has made life
for consumers, commuters and business miserable. There is definitely no space
in Valetta for all to park their car in the City and the Park and Ride must
stay but go back to a free service. CVA in the afternoon was unnecessary.
During the peak morning rationing and turnover of available parking spaces must
remain under one method or another and against payment and subject to time
limit. All reserved parking without exception irrespective of who the person,
including residents' green boxes must go. Same for reserved parking for
parliamentarians and ministers. The latter should have reserved parking outside
the City or at St Elmo and call drivers to pick them as necessary and MP's
should be offered free battery run taxi service from reserved car parks outside
The City belongs to all of us and Ministers and
Parliamentarians and other big shots must give an example of Eco friendliness
and social responsibility. What should be avoided at all costs is a free for
all as we had before CVA. The city build by gentlemen for gentlemen slowly is
returning to glory thanks to the massive investment refurbishment of historical
buildings, street paving and new public and private capital investment and the
City deserves serious traffic and parking management. Definitely the policy of
the previous government to oppose all underground car parking investment in the
city must be reversed. Failure to invest on underground parking in the City was
a gross mistake. There is scope also for investment in the open spaces in the
ditches and in lifts to the City. The concept must be pedestrianisation on top
and cars underground.
