Noisy works at the World Trade Centre last month disrupted classes at Bayside Comprehensive School which is located opposite the site, prompting complaints from school staff.

A statement from the Gibraltar Government said that there was an existing agreement with the contractors of World Trade Centre that noisy works should only be undertaken after 3.30pm.

“Noisy works were mistakenly begun at 3:00pm and regrettably, lessons were temporarily disrupted,” a government spokesman said. “The Head Teacher was alerted and promptly contacted the contractors to remind them of the existing agreement whilst students waited with their teachers in a school patio.”

The spokesman said that the government ‘regrets any unnecessary disruption’ to the school day and understands that the noise was a one-off mistake. “The Government has pursued the matter with the contractor to avoid a repetition,” the spokesman said. “The Department of Education continues to monitor the situation and welcomes the agreement of the World Trade Centre project managers to keep to the 3.30pm agreement.”
