After a heavy down pour, lots of potholes appear on our local roads. A deep pothole appeared just in the road beneath our school risking a serious accident in the area. Drivers who do not avoid the damaged road often send loose rocks flying into other drives and neighbours have been asking for the surface to be repaired as soon as possible. After contacting the Cospicua Local Council I was informed that though they know about it, their office carries no responsibility in this regard. Such road repair falls directly under the Malta Transport Authority (MTA) and the Cospicua Local Council already informed the MTA about this large pothole. In return the MTA informed the Cospicua Local Council that such a pothole was in due soon repair. However, resurfacing the road will not solve the problem as water drain culverts are also needed in the area.
