Restoration works at Fort St Elmo are under way with funds of Eur15 million from the EU. Minister for Infrastructure Joe Mizzi and Parliamentary Secretary for EU funds Ian Borg visited the works in progress.
Minister Joe Mizzi said that the preservation of this unique site is progressing according to schedule and will be open to the general public once finalised. The perimeter of the fort will be incorporated into the Valletta Circuit Road so that pedestrians can follow the coast of the Grand Harbour. Various activities are planned to be included in the fort, from cultural to interactive to commercial, to provide the visitors with various experiences.
