Gibraltar government’s budget speeches confirm progress on waste water treatment plant

3 July 2018 Gibraltar government’s budget speeches confirm progress on waste water treatment plant Modern Water is pleased to be a principal partner in the important project of delivering a waste water treatment plant for Gibraltar. The Chief Minister of HM Government of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, mentioned in his 2018/2019 budget speech before Gibraltar’s parliament that “[p]lans are also moving apace on the new Waste Water Treatment Plant, another much needed project we have been pursuing since we were elected. Mr Speaker, I am very pleased that the work on this is now sufficiently advanced that we can expect to see ground broken during the course of this calendar year. Progress indeed, at last, Mr Speaker, on a project which I know all Members on this side of the House are very keen to see completed. “ Prof. John Cortes, Minister for Education, Environment, Heritage, Energy & Climate Change, added that he is “[…] extremely pleased that work has now begun in earnest on bringing about the new sewage treatment plant and we expect the project to be completed in 2020. An advanced works contract was signed in January and includes the design and survey work required for final planning, environmental assessment and preliminary site works. It is being carefully designed to fit into the stunning landscape of Europa Point. This development is a huge achievement. There were so many obstacles and setbacks, but it was not something that we could leave undone like others have before.” For more on the Budget Speeches please click here: Chief Minister: Budget speech for 2018/19 Environment Minister: Budget speech for 2018/19 Follow us on social media: LinkedIn Twitter @modern_water
