Studies still underway on tunnel linking Marsamxett and Grand Harbour

Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2017 21:36:00 +0200
A project linking the harbours on either side of Valletta through a sea tunnel below the city is still on the drawing board, according to its proponent. Developer Anġlu Xuereb, who was awarded the concession to build the tunnel by Projects Malta, a government entity, in 2015 said studies were still under way. READ: Anglu Xuereb has a 10-year plan for Valletta Mr Xuereb filed a planning application in June last year for the construction of a tunnel that would allow specifically-designed ferry boats to cut across Valletta providing a direct sea link between Cottonera, Sliema and the capital. “The project is still on track but given it is the first of its kind we have been asked by the relevant authorities to carry out a number of studies,” Mr Xuereb said when contacted. Once the planning permit was issued, Mr Xuereb added, it would take 18 months for the project to be up and running. He ruled out finishing the project by the end of 2018 as originally envisaged, given the ongoing discussions with different authorities. >

Lufthansa eyes Air Berlin's Niki as bidders jostle for position

Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2017 21:34:00 +0200
Lufthansa has submitted a letter of interest in Air Berlin's Niki unit and other parts of the insolvent carrier, a source familiar with the talks said today. Air Berlin, which is being kept in the air thanks to a €150 million government loan, has been in talks with interested parties since last week when it filed for insolvency after major shareholder, Gulf carrier Etihad, said it would no longer provide funding. Part of Air Berlin's appeal to bidders lies in its access to take-off and landing slots at airports such as Duesseldorf, in Germany's most populous region. Lufthansa said in a statement this evening it reaffirmed that it was keen to absorb part of Air Berlin. "The interest in a takeover of parts of Air Berlin Group was reinforced with a termsheet presented today," Lufthansa said. As part of a restructuring this year, Air Berlin transferred leisure routes to tourist destinations in Spain and Greece to its Austria-based unit Niki, founded by former F1 driver Niki Lauda. Analysts at Goodbody said buying Niki would strengthen Lufthansa's position against Ryanair on such routes. For 2017, Lufthansa Group, including budget unit Eurowings, has a market share of about 22.4... >

Connecting Valletta and Sliema: a 60-year-old dream

Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2017 21:01:05 +0200
The stretch of sea between Sliema and Valletta has occasionally inspired dreamers to propose ways of bridging the two localities. It was a cable car in the 1960s and a footbridge in 2017. Photo: Jonathan Borg An idea floated by an architect to connect Sliema and Valletta with a footbridge spanning Marsamxett Harbour has received mixed reviews on social media. The proposal would help in the regeneration of the lower part of Valletta, according to Konrad Xuereb, who is based in London. Dr Xuereb’s idea is to span the 400-metre distance between Tigné Point in Sliema and the gun post on Valletta’s ramparts with a pedestrian bridge to encourage people to walk to the capital. The bridge, he said, would cost around €8 million. READ: Imagine a pedestrian bridge between Valletta and Sliema But while some have applauded the idea, others have lashed out at what they believe would compromise the Valletta cityscape. On a more technical level, others have questioned the viability of a narrow pedestrian bridge spanning an open harbour that is prone to the very strong north-easterly wind. Whether Dr Xuereb’s idea is taken up remains to be seen but for the older generations, it rekindled memories of another grand project proposed almost 60 years ago to bridge Marsamxett Harbour. Known as the aerial ropeway, the project involved a cable car connection between St Anne Square on the Sliema Ferries and... >

Taylor Swift announces 'Reputation' album

Date: Wed, 23 Aug 2017 20:47:00 +0200
Taylor Swift announced a new album titled "Reputation" today, just over a week after scoring a court victory at a high-profile groping trial in Colorado. The singer made the announcement in a series of Instagram images, including a possible album cover featuring a black and white illustration of Swift with newspaper-style headlines overlapping part of her face. The album will be released November 10, and the first single will debut tomorrow. Swift, 27, ended a six-month absence from the spotlight to deliver unflinching testimony against a radio DJ in a Denver court earlier this month. She was awarded the symbolic $1 in damages that she had sought after a federal jury in Denver found the DJ had grabbed her bottom while posing for a photo with her in 2013. The singer, one of the most followed people on social media, followed her court victory by deleting posts from Instagram, Twitter and removing her avatar from her Facebook page, sending fans into a frenzy speculating about whether Swift had been hacked or was preparing to launch new music or reinvent herself. "Reputation" will come three years after Swift's 2014 best-selling album "1989," which spawned hits such as "Shake It... >
