Transport Malta will be removing the vessel San Marco that is obstructing Magħluq Bay in Marsaxlokk during the weekend.
The contractor is setting up rigging today and will be mobilising machinery on the Bay tomorrow for the salvage operation to start on Sunday. The excavator will help dig up the wreckage while a crane barge will pull the vessel towards deeper waters. Divers have checked the sea bottom to ensure there will be no obstructions that might damage the hull or the seabed during the pulling.
For safety reasons, the beach and the surrounding area at sea will be restricted. Transport Malta and Police officers will be on site both on land and at sea to condone off the area. We appreciate your collaboration and apologise for the inconvenience.
Magħluq Bay can once again be fully enjoyed by sea-goers from next week.
