Coast Road – Current Traffic Arrangements

All the road is two way except the part from Magħtab to Kennedy Grove where the southbound traffic is unaffected but the northbound traffic is diverted into Magħtab towards T’Alla u Ommu road where it can then proceed to Kennedy Grove.

Southbound

Southbound traffic is unaffected, thus all traffic from Buġibba going towards Paceville can proceed along the Coast Road.

Northbound

On the other hand, all Northbound traffic, from Paceville going towards Buġibba, is diverted at Maghtab towards T’Alla u Ommu road where it can then head to Kennedy Grove.

The Project

The Coast Road Project is re-aligning the bends and widening the road to reduce the potential hazard of a road which has among the highest rate of fatal incidents. Once complete, for most of the road, the Coast Road will have two carriageways incorporating two lanes each, a continuous central crash barrier, footpaths and cycle lanes.

ROAD CLOSURE – KENNEDY DRIVE 9th January 2015 to 16th January 2015

Kennedy Drive, from Bugibba junction up to junction for road leading to t’Alla w Ommu, will be completely closed to traffic between Friday 9th January 2015 (closed after morning peak hours) and Friday 16th January 2015.

From same junction onwards, traffic may proceed southbound (along saltpans and beyond) in a single lane, one way,
configuration up to Triq ir-Ramla where traffic will switch back to two way.

Northbound traffic will pass through Triq ir-Ramla, up t’Alla w’Ommu and proceed towards the Mosta to Burmarrad roundabout (through Triq id-Difiza Civili).
The road will be closed due to works on the sewage systems as part of the Coast Road Project. This project is re-aligning the bends and widening the road to reduce the potential hazard of a road which has among the highest rate of fatal incidents. Once complete, for most of the road, the Coast Road will have two carriageways incorporating two lanes each, a continuous central crash barrier, footpaths and cycle lanes.
Any inconvenience is regretted.
