Ghajn Qatet Street in Victoria is now better than ever before

“Ghajn Qatet Street, in Victoria, Gozo, is at the outskirts of Victoria and it cuts (qatet) Victoria from Xewkija.
The street is very important for the Hospital service. Emergencies often prefer this secondary hospital gate than the other which will instantly throw you in the traffic jam of central Victoria.
Now that it is widened it will serve better than ever before and many drivers will bypass from Ghajn Qatet to Sannat, Xaghra, Ghajnsielem, Mgarr, Qala, even Nadur, Ramla and some other streets by driving through Ghajn Qatet and get out on the Cemetery Roundabout.I would like to thank Minister Justyne Caruana and all those involved for the tarmacadam of the street which when adorned with lights, maybe plants or trees and a state of the art bus stop, will surely stand out as a great advancement of what it was for so many years.
I mentioned the bus stop because one has to think about the many medical students who are going to be studying in the Barts school. I can imagine them running to the bus stop in summer to get the Ramla bus and go for a couple of hours to relax and then come back to do their homework.
Apart from the students, there are many relatives of patients who choose to use this side of the hospital to travel to their town by public transport or be picked up by relatives in their private cars, hospital staff and students of the Bishop’s Conservatory included.Yes, I strongly believe that a safe and sheltered stage should be designed and built where the stop presently is. There is a long stretch which can be easily adapted and offer shelter and seating.
Showing my gratitude to the Minister is automatically including our Prime Minister who has pledged that all roads in Malta will be resurfaced and made to EU standards. Thank you.”
