Enemalta takes all required precautions to ensure that road works carried out by contractors do not cause any damages on electrical cables.
Works are often conducted during the night and all the necessary precautions are taken to minimize inconvenience and safeguard workers.
Workers identify and mark the electrical cables route using a special instrument.
These activities are carried out prior excavation on infrastructural projects conducted by contractors from Infrastructure Malta, the Water Services Corporation or private ventures.
Such exercise was carried out last Monday in Triq il-Kbira San Guzepp in Ħamrun before the commencement of works related to Water Services Corporation.
Regrettably, there are still occurrences where contractors damages electrical cables during their works. Enemalta goes to great lengths to reduce such incidents to ensure continuous electrical supply to families and businesses.
