Removal of damaged road sign structure

 road sign - freedom press

Transport Malta will be removing a damaged road sign structure in Triq il-Labour Marsa tonight.

A heavy vehicle has damaged the structure, jeopardising its integrity. Transport Malta will thus remove the structure to safeguard the safety of road users.  The structure consists of poles on either side of the four-lane road and a strut with signs, fixed to the poles across the whole road.

Most of the heavy machinery will operate from the Freedom Press site, to minimise disruption. However, the road will be partially closed between 21:00 and 03:00 tonight, for safety reasons.

Transport Malta will also be taking the opportunity to refresh a number of road markings on the same road.

We urge all drivers to drive carefully and follow the instructions of officials on site.

Final Phases for Kappara Project

Sliema Road Gzira
Kappara Project is approaching its final phases as the contractor starts finalising the works on various sectors.  The contractor started asphalting the slip road on San Ġwann side of the project this morning and will start finalising the slip road towards Sliema Road Gżira from tomorrow.
Up to now, the slip road towards Gżira only has one layer of asphalt and has two lanes, since it was serving as a bypass, to keep vehicles flowing through, during the works.  The contractor will now finalise the concrete works to render the slip road as it was designed. They will then apply the final layers of asphalt.  
In order to be able to carry these works safely, the contractor will close the slip road towards Gżira for the coming weeks. Hence drivers, from 09:00 tomorrow, will be able to access Sliema Road Gżira from Triq Reggie Miller and Rue D’Argens.
Vehicles will be able to proceed over the flyover towards Valletta and Skatepark.  We urge drivers to drive safely, keep to the limit of 30Km/h on site and follow the temporary signage.

New temporary vehicle entrance for Valletta

Triq San Mark

From tomorrow, vehicles coming from the direction of Belt is-Sebħ will enter Valletta from Triq Santa Luċija.  Transport Malta will be rebuilding Triq San Mark, the usual entry point.

 

Works will start tomorrow at 09:00hrs and are expected to last for a few weeks since the entities responsible will be installing the services from scratch.  Triq San Mark will remain closed throughout the duration of works.

 

Whilst apologising for the inconvenience, we urge drivers to be mindful of the changes in traffic management, follow the temporary traffic signs and the instructions of officials on site.
