[16/13] Maintenance Works on Gharghur Transmitting Tower (17/04/2013)

Press Release 16/13


The Broadcasting Authority will be concluding some maintenance work on the upper part of the Għargħur Transmitting Tower. These works are necessary to ensure that the site is fully compliant with current health and safety regulations. The nature of the works, as on previous occasions, necessitates a switch-off of the analogue radio stations and needs to be conducted during daylight hours.

We will strive to limit switch-off to the shortest time possible but works have to be concluded during daylight hours with preparatory work taking place during the night. The work is scheduled for Friday 19th April 2013 and switch-off will be between 00:30 and 12:00 of the same day. Switch-on can take place earlier should the contractor conclude the work, and our maintenance team working on site will endeavour to conclude the works in the shortest possible time.

Should unfavourable weather deter the works on the planned day, the assignment will be postponed and a further notification will be issued.
