Passenger cabins for Barrakka lift delivered

The two cabins for the new Barrakka lift have been delivered as work on the €2.5 million project enters its final phase.

Workers are completing the 53-metre high free-standing structure and have started work on the machine room at the top.

Work is due shortly on the honey-coloured aluminium mesh which will cover the structure to blend in with the limestone of the bastions and on the bridge connecting it to the Upper Barrakka.

The lift is due to be completed in the autumn. Each panoramic cabin will be able to carry 21 passengers. The two cabins will be able to carry up to 800 passengers per hour. 

The work started in the second half of last year.
