Improvement works are continuing around the Rock

  • The improvements follow on from the opening of new tourist attractions such as the Skywalk and Windsor bridge

Gibraltar's Environmental department has provided an update on its ongoing repair and improvement works across different locations. So far, they say, stones have been removed from Eastern Beach, rocks from the shore at Little Bay and sand has been deposited at Camp Bay, with great care being taken not to affect marine wildlife. The changing rooms in Catalan Bay have been totally refurbished and Camp Bay is currently in the process of being painted.

On the Upper Rock, the access steps to Lower St Michael's Cave have been replaced with wider, safer steps to improve access. At the main cave, the lighting on the stairs has been replaced and improved.

Also on the Upper Rock, stabilisation work has now been completed at Jews' Gate by the access steps to Martin's Path, and the Pillars of Hercules monument has been fully refurbished.

The improvements follow on from the opening of new tourist attractions such as the Skywalk and Windsor bridge, the new site at Europa Point and extended hours at Upper Rock sites, which are also enjoyed by local residents.
