Veliaj releases the video and shows the transformation of the Tirana River: The rain is gone, but the memory should not leave us
A few years ago, rainfall overturned the entire area of ??the river bank in Tirana, affecting many families in Units 4, 8, 9 and 11. Today the situation has changed radically and the recent rains have not created any problems in the capital, much less in the Tirana River area.
To remember the great work that has been done for the systematization of the Tirana River and turning the area into a green space, the mayor Erion Veliaj has posted a video-reminder.
The video posted by Veliaj reminds how this area was at the time when Lulzim Basha was in charge of the Municipality of Tirana and how it is today, where there is no question of flooding.
"Most of the rain is gone, but most of the memory should not leave us ...!", Writes Veliaj on Facebook.

The video clearly shows that previously this area, and not only, was flooded, destroying the surrounding houses. This was acknowledged by the then mayor himself, Lulzim Basha.
Whereas, the Municipality of Tirana, with the construction of slopes and ambushes in the entire length of 8 kilometers of the Tirana River, has made this area no longer have any kind of risk for the river to overflow its bed. In addition, across the river surface, trees are planted every day, turning the area into a recreational area for residents.
