There are fears that a second road in Nadur is about the give way, weeks after one road on the perimeter of the locality was closed off until repairs are carried out.

Photos doing the rounds on social media indicate that part of Kenuna Road, which overlooks the valley, is showing similar cracks as the ones which were posted in September with regard to Ghajn Qasab Street.

The photos were posted on the ‘It-toroq t’Ghawdex’ Facebook page, with Gozitans saying that the matter should be addressed urgently before the damage - and danger of collapse - grows.

They hope that the ministry will react in the same manner as it did in September, when Ghajn Qasab Road was immediately closed off when the reports surfaced and work to repair the road started a few days later.

On Tuesday, part of another road in Nadur collapsed as Gozo was hit by bad weather.

Triq il-Madonna ta’ Fatima (below) partially gave in after a wall collapsed under heavy flooding.

Nadur’s mayor Edward Said posted photos on Facebook, saying that the Gozo Ministry had undertaken the task to rebuild this road.
