Work on Birgu’s ‘Fuq il-Glacis’ green space project advancing steadily

WasteServ Malta and Project Green aim to open 9,000m2 for the community by the summer months​​.

Works on a new recreational area situated at the heart of Birgu are progressing steadily, with the regenerated area expected to be opened to the public by the summer months.

The 9,000m2 site is situated in the area known as 'Fuq il-Glacis' and will be transformed into a safe space split into different recreational zones, including a picnic area, a playground and a dog park. Announced in August by GreenServ - WasteServ's greening arm - and Project Green, works on the project are advancing steadily, with the restoration of internal structures finalised and works on fencing and gates nearing completion.

The regeneration of the site will involve the installation of various equipment, including adventure park elements, dog park essentials, benches, bins and lighting posts. Part of the garden's new lighting systems will be powered by solar panels whilst the equipment was crafted from sustainable wood and recycled materials.

During a visit of the ongoing works with WasteServ CEO Richard Bilocca and Birgu Mayor John Boxall, Minister for the Environment, Energy, and Regeneration of the Grand Harbour, Miriam Dalli, thanked WasteServ and Project Green for their efforts on the project to ensure that works are completed, and the site returned to the community for its enjoyment.

“This green development will continue to provide a better quality of life to the residents of the Three Cities, complemented by the development of another green space in neighbouring Bormla whereby 3,000 sqm of developable land will also be turned into a green space," Minister Miriam Dalli said, referring to the site adjacent to the American University of Malta.

The project is being undertaken against an investment of around €500,000 and has been designed to minimise carbon emissions, prioritising long-term sustainability.
