The Mdina Ditch is being upgraded and landscaped to be transformed into a quality garden.

Works on the ditch were this morning visited by Resources Minister George Pullicino, who said this was only one of a series of projects through which space was being passed back on to the community.

The ditch, he said, was previously inaccessible and parts of it were accessible to just a few people. It was now being reopened for everyone as a quality garden.

None of the trees were lost, they have been increased in number but rearranged so as to help one get a better understanding of the bastions’ dimensions, the minister said.
