Most containers bound for Gozo are unloaded either at the Freeport or at Ras Hanzir at Marsa. They then have to go up to Cirkewwa for crossing over to Gozo, sometimes causing considerable traffic jams en route. Since Marsa and B'Bugia are both in the southern area of Malta, can't there be a ferry specifically assigned to these trucks/containers whereby they are loaded from one of the ports and taken directly to Gozo. This will result in less travel time on the road as well as less pollution and less stress for the drivers of these heavy vehicles.
