Dangerous structure used for diving removed at San Tumas bay

The Planning Authority has issued an enforcement order for the removal of a concrete block illegally built during the years and that led to a number of incidents at San Tumas bay in Marsaskala.

The illegal three-metre structure, built before 2012, was built with limestone on a concrete block. It was popular with swimmers as a diving site but with the risk of injuring themselves on under-sea rocks.

The Enforcement Directorate requested the Government’s Lands Section and the Tourism Authority to remove the unpleasant structure in the area. The demolishing work was carried out in the past days.
