Kusuma Promenade at Europa Point, Gibraltar
Supporting the Government of Gibraltar to renovate Europa Point
Europa Point is a mythic and prominent landmark on Gibraltar – the southernmost point of the island and one of the famous Pillars of Hercules. It’s home to the Trinity lighthouse with cliffs looming behind and offering stunning views across the sea to North Africa. Between 2010 and 2012 we supplemented the Government of Gibraltar’s infrastructure project to develop the area, giving over £600,000 towards the Kusuma Promenade
A Herculean undertaking
This was our first major infrastructure project in Gibraltar, and we were lucky to work in partnership with the Government of Gibraltar on the final stages of the development’, says Michelle Tosso, our Country Manager in Gibraltar. ‘The western edge of the promenade needed to be landscaped, beautified and made safe for the many tourists and locals who come to enjoy this spot on the island’.
Costing over £600,000 in total, the Kusuma Promenade runs above the clifftop of Europa Point round the southern plateau and across to the newly uncovered gun mount, which has been converted into an interpretation centre. It was formally inaugurated by Chief Minister Fabian Picardo on the 29th May 2012.
