Before any construction took place, the Archeological Museum conducted a historical assessment of the site to determine if there were any ancient indian burial sites and/or indication of a former settlement. The study came back positive, and hereby construction began using only sustainable tactics with the main focus to keep the area’s flora intact. The idea is to built with nature, not against it.
The main objectivity of this investment project was to enhance the safety within the Malmok strip area. The former situation deemed to be unsafe and hazardous for everyone that was using the Malmok Strip. Now pedastrians, cyclists and motorists have a new enhanced infrastructure to enjoy the scenic breathing taking views Malmok has to offer.
Completion date: Phase 1 Completed in 2019 and Phase 2 in 2020.
