Implementing one or more new permanent measure(s), which contribute(s) to modal transfer from private car to environmentally sound means of transport.
Permanent measures implemented this year:
Freight distribution
  • Introducing cargo bikes
  • Other: Pedal-assisted tricycle for urban cleaning
More details on permanent measures:

The measure aims to make use of a pedal-assisted tricycle to be used for cleaning, sweeping waste collection. This will be used instead of a commercial fossil fuel powered garbage truck in the Urban Conservation Area and narrow streets of Haz-Zebbug. Through this innovative measure, waste will be collected in a more ecologically sustainable manner.
