Enemalta has said that the second phase of the €1.6 million project to upgrade the electricity supply to Gozo, by replacing the old overhead 33 kV lines and pylons at Mellieha with underground cables is nearing completion.
These are being replace by 10 kilometres of new high voltage underground cables, which the company said, will improve the reliability and security of the electricity distribution network supplying Gozo.
The stretch of new 33 kV underground cables along part of the Mellieha Bypass is now in place and Enemalta said that road resurfacing works will be completed within a few days.
The project includes the removal of the longest stretch of overhead 33kV lines still in use in Malta, extending all the way from the Mellieha’s residential area down to Ghadira Bay, before taking a steep climb to the Red Tower area of L-Ahrax tal-Mellieha, until they reach the Vendôme Distribution Centre at Armier.
