Last Monday 28th October the Double Glazing scheme for Birzebbugia Residents was opened. Last September Minister Konrad Mizzi announced the scheme at a conference at Birzebbugia. The scope of this scheme is to aid those households in specific areas of Birzebbuga that are in close proximity to the Freeport, so as to replace any external facing apertures which are antiquated or inefficient and change them to better sound insulating ones. Malta Freeport Corporation and Malta Freeport Terminals funded this scheme.
