The Victoria Gate in Ta' Liesse, Valletta, built in 1885 and named after Queen Victoria then the reigning sovereign, is undergoing intensive restoration.

The restoration works extend to the church of Notre Dame de Liesse, the steps leading to St Ursula Street and St John's Street and St Barbara Bastion.

While visiting the works, Resources Minister George Pullicino said the Restoration Unit was replacing a dangerous room in the church's sacristy, removing aluminium shutters and restoring the dome, bell tower and façade in a €30,000 project.

Meanwhile, the Valletta Rehabilitation Project was replacing any broken steps using old stone, repairing open mortar joints and restoring about 4,000 square metres of bastion.
