In the letters section of The Times of Malta, a reader wrote in under the title "Bypass Safety" (click here to read letter)vis a' vis the imminent danger presented by the half collapsed bypass running over St.Paul's Bay toward's Xemxija, which had collapsed and been half cordoned off by concrete barriers due to excavations on an underlying building site. More recently a further mudslide swept off half the foundations from under a residence, leaving part of it perched in mid air.

MEPA is claiming it is not responsible for the safety of projects it has sanctioned, and this responsibility lies with the developer and architects. An inquiry into the matter has been ordered by Environment Minister George Pullicino , and a report should be issued within 6 weeks from February 8th. 2006.
