Final asphalting works commence in Kappara

Kappara

Kappara Project is nearing completion. As from tomorrow at 09:00hrs, the contractor will commence asphalting works on Gżira side.

Until now the roads had only one layer of asphalt, so vehicles could keep flowing during the works on San Ġwann side. Now that the project reached its final phases and the principal works are completed, the contractor will lay the final layers of asphalt on the whole area, avoiding joints, thus finalising the works in the best way possible.

In order to be of less inconvenience to the drivers, whilst works are on-going, vehicles will proceed from the bridge on San Ġwann’s side, one lane in each direction. As soon as works are ready on this side, same traffic arrangements will apply on the other bridge with vehicles proceeding on one lane in each direction.

Drivers are reminded that this area is a construction site and therefore advised to drive carefully keeping the speed limit of 30km/h.

Transport Malta and MCAST sign agreement

\TM

Yesterday, 7th November, the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology and Transport Malta signed an agreement to pursue further collaboration.

Transport Malta will participate in different schemes of teaching based on work, offered by MCAST, with the aim to improve the employability of students in sectors that fall within the remit of Transport Malta. The Authority will help MCAST by raising awareness on the importance of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects for a career within the transport industry while organising training sessions, seminars in class and visits by students and workers.

The Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, Dr. Ian Borg described Transport Malta and MCAST as two entities with an important role in Maltese Society and thus, a collaboration between the two will prove beneficial for students and society at large. The Minister explained how Transport Malta has been the main partner with MCAST in apprenticeship and internship schemes since 2014, with 14 internships and two apprenticeships this year. He said that the Memorandum of Understanding will formalise this important collaboration while raising awareness on careers in the transport sector.
