MDA favours strengthening of the law for better protection against fire hazards

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

The Malta Developers Association welcomes in the most positive manner the news announced by Infrastructure Minister Ian Borg that laws on protection against fires in buildings are to be consolidated as part of the reform in the construction sector.

As the Minister rightly said, the law on security against fires in buildings is currently sporadic and fragmented, and the MDA feels that this reform, which will enable the law to be strengthened in this area, is urgently needed.

Road contractors within MDA satisfied with increased work

Malta Developers Association President Sandro Chetcuti led a seven-man delegation of road contractors who are affiliated within the MDA in a highly positive meeting with Transport Minister Joe Mizzi and Transport Malta Chairman James Piscopo last Saturday.

The contractors expressed their satisfaction that in the past three years infrastructural work on local roads had increased due to the number of projects that are under way.

Mr Mizzi said the door was always open to dialogue so that challenges and certain difficulties could be discussed. He appealed to the contractors to comply with their contract conditions.

Often he said the public complained that works start when others have not been completed, leading to delays to complete the works and inconvenience to the public.

“We want to start giving a clear sign that the Government is paying attention to these things and we need to continue to give priority to health and safety,” Mr Mizzi said.

On his part Mr Piscopo noted that during the past three years substantial progress had been registered, with contractors having to invest in better machinery, there is a greater focus on traffic management during works and it was easier to reach agreement with the contractors to conduct work during the night.

“We had an open dialogue in the past three years,” Mr Piscopo said, adding: “These are all positive aspects and our doors are always open.”

Mr Chetcuti said that the fact that the contractors today had come together and were part of the MDA is a sign of goodwill so that the work is done in a professional manner.

At the end of the meeting it was decided that the MDA would begin to be represented on the Traffic Management Committee, which meets regularly within the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure.
