Parking along Sliema Promenade

 GRTU has yesterday discussed its practical suggestion for a solution of the problem with the Minister who consented on a short notice to discuss the views of GRTU together with his experts. This in an attempt to find a possible solution to the unacceptable difficulties which cropped up in Sliema due to the recent arrangements announced by the Ministry responsible for Transport and Arriva which effectively remove 62 parking slots along the seafront.

 

This altogether surprising decision was taken without consultation with representatives of the business community.

GRTU regrets  that unfortunately an issue that could have been resolved without much adverse  and unnecessary comments was so hastily decided. GRTU has this morning discussed with the Minister  responsible for Public Projects, Architect George Pullicino, alternative solutions to the problem and as a result of this consultation GRTU is confident that with enough good will from all the public authorities involved in the matter a solution can be effected without much further delay that would rebalance the parking problem created by the new changes to the Bus routes effecting the area. GRTU is confident also that the new Bus Lane and the new arrangements together with the practical solution as discussed with the support of GRTU will be a boost to business in the area.

GRTU has today appealed to the Prime Minister so that he intervenes so this matter is resolved without much further argument as the alternative plan presented by GRTU  mitigates favorably  the negative impact on commerce in the Bisazza Street and the surrounding area.
