Prime Minister Edi Rama and Tirana’s Mayor, Erion Veliaj, inspected the reconstruction work of the new boulevard in the Capital today.
They both praised the work so far, and the Prime Minister declared that Tirana’s citizens are seeing the results of casting their vote in the right direction.
The Prime Minister added that the work on the boulevard should have started earlier, but it was hampered in 2011.
In a statement, Prime Minister Rama said, “Tirana lost a lot because of the vote given in the wrong direction. Tirana would have had the boulevard, but things did not go right, because the vote was given in the wrong direction. Nevertheless, because of the vote given in the right direction since, Tirana is now moving towards the right direction, thanks to its Mayor”.
The Mayor said the investment will bring a new living standard to the Capital, adding that some State institutions will be positioned towards the boulevard.
“I am happy that together with the Prime Minister, we are laying two symbolic tiles. This will be an area of development. The new City Hall will be transferred to the new boulevard. Also, I want to ask the Prime Minister for considering the new boulevard as an ideal place for Ministry headquarters”-said the Mayor, adding that the parking area at ‘Scanderbeg Square’ will open on March 14th.
The project for the new boulevard and the rehabilitation of Scanderbeg Square are two projects initiated by Prime Minister Rama back in 2011, when he was Tirana’s Mayor. The projects are now being implemented by the new Mayor, Erion Veliaj.
