Gozo: bridge plan shelved, focus will be on tunnel

http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles...-tunnel.587961



Quote:
Studies commissioned by the government have shown that a tunnel between Malta and Gozo would be more feasible than a bridge, Finance Minister Edward Scicluna said in the Budget speech this evening.
He said that nearly €500,000 will be spent next year on detailed technical and geological studies on the building of a tunnel. That will include boring of the seabed before a final decision will be taken on going ahead with the project.
The tunnel project will be held in conjunction with the private sector.
The minister also announced that Gozitan students working in Malta will see their allowance raised by €300 per year.
Furthermore, employers who engage workers in Gozo on at least a three year contract will be given a refund equivalent to 20% of the average wage.

He also stressed the need for efforts to let Iranian investors know about the opportunities and potential available in Malta, saying it will stimulate closer ties between Tehran and Valletta.

New parliament among Telegraph's best and worst buildings of 2015

http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles...of-2015.596601

Quote:
Renzo Piano's parliament building in Valletta is in the list of best and worst new buildings in the world, featured in a Daily Telegraph review.

It seems, however, that the newspaper cannot decide in which category to place the building, although it slammed Piano's new Whitney Museum of American Art opened in New York on May 1.

How is the situation of public transport in Malta? I know that aren't metro/subway or trams/streetcars.
Been in Malta many years ago as a kid (in a sailboat) but not recently
