The Tower Crane for the extended development of the car park in High Street will be placed in the abandoned house which is adjacent to the car park. This is a very positive example of the power of residents in influencing the policies of Sliema Local Council and respective authorities.
A temporary passageway with overhead protection will be set up along the house so that pedestrians can make use of the pavement.
Construction works will start immediately and should take 6 months.
Residents will be informed of rules and regulations set out for the developer as well as arrangements for ongoing works.
Lower High Street will be blocked every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 12.00Hrs till 18.00Hrs. Residents living in High Street and Ghar il Lembi street have to access via Ghar Il Lembi during these days and times.
Services like waste collection, grocery/water deliveries etc... must be organised for the mornings on these days.
The parking spaces at the top of High Street corner with Ghar Il Lembi, (in front of the Alborado apts.) will be left free for easy manoeuvring
Wardens will be in attendance at all times. And the police will also be patrolling to control the situation
Vehicles will reverse into Lower High Street with their 'exhaust Pipe' facing the car park side... in order to protect the retail outlets.
Vehicles will exit the way they came in.
Last but not least, residents are welcome to phone 21337633 at the local council, should they need assistance or feel there is an uncomfortable situation beyond their control.
