Sliema ferries €1m project excluded sea water flooding
A €1 million project at the Sliema Ferries did not even attempt to solve the seawater flooding problem there, Transport Malta has admitted.
It said solving the seawater flooding problems at the Ferries whenever the level of seawater changes did not fall within the remit of this project but was included in the planned underground car park project.
Transport Malta has so far spent in excess of €950,000 to upgrade the promenade and the state of the roads at the Sliema Ferries.
A spokesman said the seawater flooding problems had to be solved through “attenuation measures” from the waterside edge.
“Such interventions lay outside the remit of the present road upgrade project works,” the spokesman said.
