The primitive bus shelter put up in recent days in Bugibba is the work of the local council, Minister Owen Bonnici told Censu Galea (PN).
Mr Galea asked who was it who had joined two kee-clamps tgogether and called them a bus shelter.
Meanwhile, in a reply to a blog, St Paul's Bay mayor, Ray Tabone, frankly admitted the bus shelter had been put up by the council.
The council had been waiting for a long time for Transport Malta to put up the bus shelter to no avail. Recently it has learnt that this requires a full Mepa application, which takes at least three months to be processed.
The council thus put up a temporary shelter rather than leave people waiting in the sun.
Meanwhile, in another reply to Mr Galea, Minister Joe Mizzi said Transport Malta has approved 47 bus shelters and 43 applications have been submitted to Mepa and 42 have been approved. These bus shelters are being installed.
