Removal of around 6,800 tons of inert dumped material from il-Prajjet, Għajn Żnuber and ix-Xagħra l-Ħamra.
Works are ongoing at Majjistral Park to rehabilitate the natural habitats, restore historic buildings and promote the park itself, environment minister Aaron Farrugia said.
The Ministry and the Environment and Resources Authority (ERA) financed the removal of around 6,800 tons of inert dumped material from il-Prajjet, Għajn Żnuber and ix-Xagħra l-Ħamra.
Around 200 tons of invasive alien species, including century plants (known as l-agave or is-sabbar tal-Amerka) and blue-leaved wattles (l-akaċja) were also removed.
Farrugia said the Majjistral Park merits significant protection as it forms part of the Natura 2000 network of sites of ecological importance with high landscape value, serving as an open space with significant recreational and educational value.
The Il-Majjistral area contains a stretch of 6km of protected coast designated as part of a Natura 2000 site.
The protected area is managed by the Heritage Parks Federation consisting of three NGOs involved in coastal management, cultural restoration and environmental protection: namely, Din l-Art Ħelwa, Gaia Foundation, and Nature Trust Malta.
