Transport Malta notifies that the public car park at Deep Water Quay, Xatt l-Għassara tal-Għeneb in Marsa (near the Valletta Waterfront) has now re-opened to the public in time for the festive season. The car park will provide 115 car spaces.
The car park is located on Deep Water Quay, a quay that is currently undergoing a general refurbishment and upgrading, part funded by the EU through cohesion funds 2007-13. This area had to be closed so that the necessary structural interventions to the quay are carried out. The ‘car park’ area, which serves to anchor the quay to the landside, was in a deteriorated state due to heavy corrosion of the underlying steel structure supporting the deck.
Works at the car park commenced in April 2014 and included the refurbishment and replacement of steel structures, earthworks to consolidate the quay, storm water drainage system, new concrete deck overlaid with asphalt and security fencing. The car park will also provide a solar electrical car charging facility, which is still under construction as part of another EU funded project.
