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.

Kappara Flyovers open for traffic

Kappara: Sliema Road, Gżira to open in both directions

Vehicles coming from Sliema Road Gżira can, from tomorrow, access Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  This access was closed since the start of the Kappara Project.  Major works on the East side of Kappara Project have been completed and drivers can start availing themselves of the newly constructed stretch of road.

Reconstruction of Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli

Transport Malta will start reconstructing the upper part of Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  For a few metres, traffic from Reggie Miller to the South Bound sliproad will proceed on one lane.

Vehicles coming from Regional Road or from Triq Reggie Miller can no longer use the crossing towards San Ġwann.  They need to turn at the Skate Park Junction or use alternative routes. 

Kappara junction remains a construction site, drive carefully, follow signs and keep to the 30Km/h speed limit.

Kappara: Works on services

Kappara: Works on services tonight

Works on services and connections in Kappara will be carried out tonight. 

Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli direction to St. Julian’s will be closed to traffic between 21:30hrs and 02:00hrs.  The road will be closed before the tunnels up to the roundabout in Regional Road.  During works, traffic will be diverted onto Birkirkara bypass.  Traffic towards the University will not be affected.

Drivers are to drive carefully and follow instructions by the officials on site.

Last remaining wing wall for the Kappara flyover

Transport Malta will be constructing the last remaining wing wall for the Kappara flyover from tomorrow morning.


The Authority will, for safety reasons, slightly modify the existing traffic management on the Northbound lanes of Regional Road.  Vehicles will be able to proceed towards St. Julian’s on one lane for the whole stretch.  Traffic from Triq Bella Vista San Gwann will be diverted onto Triq il-Huttaf in Kappara.  Heavy vehicles will be diverted onto Triq  Birkirkara San Gwann.

Kindly use alternative routes, drive carefully and follow directions on the site.  The speed limit is 30 Km/h.

Kappara: Further work on bridge deck

Transport Malta will continue placing precast concrete on the second bridge of Kappara throughout tomorrow.  The contractor will use a crane from where vehicles coming from the direction of the University usually go towards St. Julians.  Vehicles, between 05:00 and 18:00, will go through Sliema Road towards Triq il-Ħuttaf to emerge back on Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  Big vehicles will go through Naxxar Road San Ġwann.

We ask drivers to avoid the area as far as possible by using Birkirkara Bypass or Rue D’Argens.  Kappara Junction is a construction site with numerous workers, drive carefully and keep to the 30Km/h speed limit.
