Restoration Method Statement for the Shifting of a Pill Box - 2012


The proposed widening and realignment of the Coast Road in the vicinity of San Pawl il-Bahar will negatively impinge on a 1930s concrete beach post and searchlight located in the area. Due to its historical and cultural significance, the pillbox is to be relocated away from the proposed road kerb. Due to its large size and being embedded in the rock, it is being proposed that the beach post is dismantled and transported to its new position. The searchlight is to be secured and elevated to its pre-determined position.  Following the relocation, the beach post and searchlight are to be restored.
