Asphalting Works at Qawra/ Bugibba/ St. Paul’s Bay Junction

 

Works at the Bugibba / Qawra side of the Coast Road are also reaching their final phases and extensive asphalting works in the Qawra/ Bugibba/ St. Paul’s Bay junction are being planned for the coming Wednesday and Thursday nights as well as all day Saturday as follows: 

 

Wednesday Night – From 7pm till the following morning 6am

The junction will be closed to all traffic during the night between Wednesday 30th September 2015 at 7pm and Thursday 1st October 2015 at 6am.

Drivers are urged to use alternative routes and avoid the area completely.

Those drivers that need to access the area around this junction are kindly asked to follow the directions that they will be given around the works. 

 

Thursday Night – From 7pm till the following morning 6am

The junction will be closed to all traffic during the night between Thursday 1st October 2015 at 7pm and Friday 2nd October 2015 at 6am.

Drivers are urged to use alternative routes and avoid the area completely.

Those drivers that need to access the area around this junction are kindly asked to follow the directions that they will be given around the works.

 

Saturday – During the day from 5am till 1pm (northbound) and 8pm (southbound)

This will be the final phase of the asphalting works in the junction. It is deemed to be the most critical phase of the asphalting works and will be done during the day to ensure the best possible result due to the high visual inspection element of these works.

The timing of the works is also meant to be in sync with the ongoing weekend activities in the area which require north bound access in the early evening and full access later on.

The junction will be closed to all traffic on Saturday 3rd October 2015 at 5am.  

The northbound traffic will then be able to drive across this junction from 1pm onwards. 

Southbound traffic will in turn be granted access from 8pm onwards.

Drivers are urged to use alternative routes and avoid the area completely.

Those drivers that need to access the area around this junction are kindly asked to follow the directions that they will be given around the works.

These works are approved by the Traffic Management Committee as best possible alternative after discussing different alternatives.

 Transport Malta reminds all drivers that the speed limit on this road and adjacent to all road works varies between 30 and 40km/h and that all motorists are obliged to follow signage and directions from the duty officers.
