The ‘almost’ completed repair work at Hondoq
I have just received photographs from a friend on Gozo of the 'almost' completed repair work at Hondoq. I think the Gatt brothers should be congratulated for the quick and efficient way in which they carried out this work and cannot be held in any way responsible for the 6 months it took to get it done.
What I found disturbing about these photographs was a sign reading, 'Danger Works in Progress, No diving until clearing works are completed'. Are we now looking at another 6 months to get the boulders removed from the diving area? Can the Ministry for Gozo guarantee that the children who love jumping into the water at this point are going to take any notice of the sign?
I should point out that the information I have is that the tender received by the Gatt brothers did not include the removal of these boulders. Can I ask the Ministry why? Wouldn't it have made more sense to have both jobs completed at the same time? Just a thought but it would seem to make sense that if you have boulders to remove and a hole to fill the jobs may complement each other!
