A messy road in Santa Venera

When one passes through Triq il-Madonna tal-Karmnu, a road in Santa Venera, one would think that an earthquake has just occurred or that this road was declared a warzone.  Indeed, this road is a disaster.

As soon as one arrives at the beginning of the road, the person entering should think about it twice whether it is a good idea to enter.  This is even more so when entering by car.  Unless you have a high pickup or you really don’t like your car, it would be wiser not to enter by car.  If you wish to ruin your car, this road is perfect!  Potholes all over, dust during the dry season and mud during the wet season.

The road has always been in this state.  It’s been years and nothing was ever done.  No tarmac, no proper parking and dust all over.  The poor residents must deal with this every day, all year round.  Moreover, some residents have also complained that due to recent road works, their garages are always blocked.  Some could not use them for weeks.

We urge the authorities to take immediate action and to complete the road as soon as possible since the dust the residents are exposed to causes severe health impacts.  It is shameful that this road has been in this state for years.  The sooner the road is finished the better.  Residents should not suffer because of this inefficiency.

Triq Diżastruża ġewwa Santa Venera

Meta xi ħadd jgħaddi minn Triq il-Madonna tal-Karmnu, triq fil-lokalita’ ta’ Santa Venera, wieħed jaħseb li għadu kif seħħ terremot jew li qied fil-gwerra.  Din it-triq hija diżastruża.

Meta xi ħadd jasal fil-bidu tat-triq, aħjar jaħsibha darbtejn qabel ma jidħol fit-triq, speċjalment jekk inkun ser jidħol bil-karozza.  Sakemm m’għandekx karozza għolja jew ma tħobbx il-karozza tiegħek, aħjar ma tidħolx.  Jekk tixtieq tfarrak karozza, din it-triq hija perfetta!  Ħofor kullimkien, trabijiet fis-sajf u tajn fix-xitwa.

It-triq minn dejjem kienet f’dan l-istat.  Ilha hekk għal snin twal u qatt ma saret.  Tarmak ma jeżistix, parking diżastru u trabijiet kull fejn tħares.  Ir-residenti jiffaċċjaw ruħhom ma dawn il-kundizzjonijiet kulljum, u dan għal snin twal.  Ċertu residenti qalu ukoll li minħabba xi xogħolijiet li saru dawn l-aħħar ġimgħat il-garaxxijiet tagħhom ma jistawx jintużaw, u biċċiet minnhom għal ġimgħat sħaħ.

Nappellaw lil awtoritajiet sabiex tittieħed azzjoni immedjata u sabiex din it-triq titlesta malajr kemm jista’ jkun.  Dan għaliex it-trabijiet iwasslu għal impatti negattivi fuq is-saħħa tar-residenti.  Hija verament tal-mistħija li din it-triq ilha f’dan l-istat għal snin twal.  Aktar ma titlesta malajr din it-triq, aħjar.  Ir-residenti m’għandhomx ibagħatu minħabba l-ineffiċenza.
