The project was aimed to target the flooding problem in Malta and involved the construction of a network of underground tunnels, canals and bridges to provide a better storm water drainage infrastructure for the worst-hit areas of the island.
To develop infrastructure to minimize the destructive effects of storm water and reduce the incidence of flash-flooding, as well as, develop storm water catchment and re-use facilities.
The project has substantially improved the physical storm water infrastructural shortcomings and provided better preparedness and mitigation against likely impacts of climate change of the most vulnerable areas in 11 localities in 4 different basins.
The idea was to construct a network of underground tunnels, canals and bridges to provide better storm water drainage.
The project was co-financed by the Cohesion fund of the EU and the Malta government. The allocated funds were of €42.9 million. It involved the construction of a total of 18km of tunnels, a soak way reservoir of 10,000 cubic meters, the reconstruction of 5 bridges and the construction of numerous culverts.
