Work has started to rebuild what has been described as Gozo’s ‘most dangerous road’.
A huge trench around two metres deep has been dug as engineers begin to repair the main road between Nadur and Ramla Bay.
The work is being carried out urgently after a number of ‘worrying’ sinkholes appeared in the road surface.
The potentially dangerous discovery led to the closure of the road, which is used by hundreds of cars, lorries and buses every day.
Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana posted on Facebook: ‘A big well done to the Ministry for Gozo employees.’
She blamed ‘years and years of neglect’ for the initial problem.
Nadur’s mayor Edward Said described the gaping holes in the road as ‘scary’ and ‘worrying’.
