A request was lodged at Transport Malta in the first week of this month to undertake maintenance works on the popular slipway for small pleasure craft in Triq tax-Xtut, Qawra. The slipway has been rendered unusable due to the ingress of sand there and within the launch perimeter. The prospect of enjoying sea craft this year is, at best, bleak.

Officials responsible for slipway maintenance have been notified and are aware of the request.

May I ask that the responsible authority take ownership to remove the sand in this area and deposit it in Balluta, thus achieving two aims with a single effort: cost reductions and a service to boat users.

On behalf of all the boat users at this slipway, help on the matter from Transport Malta and Projects Malta is solicited.
