|Email item||Print item||
The Gozo Business Chamber is organising a Presentation by economist Dr Gordon Cordina, of the detailed report about the feasibility of a ‘Gozo – Malta Subsea Tunnel.’
The GBC took the initiative to engage Dr Gordon Cordina to effect this detailed study. As well as this, members from the Gozo Business Chamber together with representatives from Transport Malta also recently visited Norway, where they spoke to experts there, and toured several underwater tunnels.
The Gozo Business Chamber is inviting all those interested to attend for this presentation. To keep updated with further information please see the GBC facebook page.
The presentation is being held on Friday, the 20th of November 2015, starting at 7.30pm at the Grand Hotel, Mgarr, Gozo.
In 2012 Transport Malta released detailed feasibility studies on a road-tunnel link between Malta and Gozo.
Transport Malta appointed Mott Macdonald to carry out a preliminary analysis of road tunnel link options between Malta and Gozo. The report by Mott Macdonald is available for download here.
At the time Transport Malta said that, “this follows expert findings that in principle, and on the basis of a preliminary and high level review, a road link is technologically doable and may be economically feasible.”
The study presented a high level analysis of different tunnel options based on existing data, studies, information, site visits and various discussions with stakeholders.
Four potential tunnels alignments were assessed at a preliminary, conceptual level ranging in length between 6 and 10 kilometres depending on their depth and structural design..
