This project involves the structural consolida- tion and conservation of the aqueduct built by the British between 1839 and 1843. Camilleri said that back in 2017, the Gozo Minis- try had conducted minor restorations to fix dam- age that had accumulated over the years. "This much-needed res- toration will begin after all the necessary studies have been completed and the competent authori- ties have issued permits. Extensive restoration will ensure that this historical heritage, located to the west of the island, is pre- served and eventually en- joyed," the minister said. Director for Cultural Heritage John Xuereb said that the project is di- vided into several phas- es, with the first phase already ready, which involved a geological in- vestigation of the subsoil to understand the nature of the aqueduct founda- tions and determine the composition of the un- derlying geological strata. In the second phase of the project, which will start in the coming weeks, there will be a temporary shoring with the main arch while the third and final phase of the project will focus on the structural consolida- tion of the foundations and the aqueduct conser- vation. The project is sched- uled for completion by the end of 2025 and is ex- pected to cost €2 million.
