The Environment and Resources Authority board on Monday unanimously approved an application for the rebuilding of the breakwater in Buġibba.

The new structure will include passenger facilities for a public ferry service.

The application for the breakwater's environmental permit was filed by Infrastructure Malta following the issuance of a development permit by the Planning Authority.

The applicant requested the replacement and extension of the existing breakwater to include additional mooring facilities, new ferry landing facilities and a passenger terminal that would connect Buġibba with Valletta and other coastal localities.
