University of Malta to Survey Area of Planned Subsea Tunnel

Transport Malta has signed up University of Malta to conduct geological and geophysical investigations in conjunction with the subsea tunnel between Malta and Gozo.

The scientific investigations will include both desktop and field studies, passive seismic measurements, bathymetric mapping, and a seismic study.

The final results of these investigations will also incorporate the results from the recently published investigative coring tender. These results will in turn generate a terrestrial baseline study which will include geological, geomorphological and hydrogeological maps. It will also include a digital elevation model, cross-sectional profiles and hydrological models.

The University of Malta will conduct a marine baseline study which will include a geological model of topography, stratigraphy, structure, geological, geophysical and tectonic properties of the study area.

Transport Malta’s chairman, James Piscopo, said: “Transport Malta is very pleased to have the University of Malta on board for this exciting project. We look forward to collaborating together in enhancing and expanding our knowledge, whilst gaining unprecedented information that will critically help us in delivering a project that will be of social and economic benefit not only for Gozo but our country as a whole.”
