Under normal circumstances this would have been imported from Spain. Some issues arise with that on a scheme of this size, namely: the quantities, quality and consistency of the material cannot be guaranteed; there are doubts as to the environmental impact of the extraction process in Spain, especially given the current lull in construction activity; the possibility of delays and issues at the border, as with any other material and the transport operation equates to 150 journeys by heavy lorry from potentially far afield, with their consequent carbon impact.

YGTV’s hugely popular website, which keeps you all informed throughout the day, will be re-launched as a fresher, smarter and better site this coming Monday 15th July. YGTV is going from strength to strength – last month alone, we enjoyed 45,269 unique hits and almost 60,000 page views showing that we are, for many, the first port of call for online news in Gibraltar. To keep up with a rapidly changing world, we felt it was time to give our website a makeover so we’ll be presenting a fresher, more user-friendly site in a few days. Unfortunately, this will mean that YGTV’s website will be down during the weekend in the run up to Monday’s launch.
