Further Funds for Wied il-Mielah

Gozo is to continue enjoying EU Funds, as the Gharb Local Council has succeeded in obtaining further funds for the Rehabilitation of Wied il-Mielah.

Wied il-Mielah – towards an ecologically and culturally sensitive sustainable tourism is the name of the €600,000 project, which will be co-financed by 85% from the European Regional Development Fund. The project will give a touristic dimension to the works already carried out whilst respecting the environment.

Mayor David Apap explained that the works which will give start to the 2nd phase of the Wied il-Mielah rehabilitation project will last for a period of a year and a half and works are scheduled to start by the end of the year. The works will include construction of rubble walls and bridges which have been destroyed, cleaning of the valley basin and resurfacing of the road leading to the valley in order to make it more accessible. In the mean time directional signs will also be erected to indicate the way to this recreational area.

Attractions including rustic furniture, observation binoculars and audio visual equipment will be installed. The Project includes also promotion and awareness of the site as a diverse tourist destination. Information material will be available to the public. The project will compliment the works carried out through the first phase also through the Structural Funds Program for Malta 2004-2006 which included cleaning of the Valley Basin and construction of rubble walls.
