Parking at Wied Babu

A few weeks ago some club members were climbing at Wied Babu, having parked their cars on the dirt near some farm entrances opposite the iron ladder as has been done for years.  A traffic warden insisted that the cars be moved, even the ones facing the direction of traffic, as otherwise fines would be issued.

As a result of this incident, one of our club members has contacted the Żurrieq local council and has been assured that no fines should be issued for cars parked in this area, as long as they are facing in the direction of traffic (i.e. your car must be pointing towards Żurrieq rather than Blue Grotto). If the lay-by is full, you should park further down the road at the Blue Grotto belvedere.

Should anyone have any problems with parking there please inform the MCC immediately so we can take the matter up with the council.
