Stormwater works in Mqabba

The Works and Infrastructure Department within the Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects is currently leading a project in Triq Karmenu Ciantar in Mqabba.

This work will serve to direct rain water into a new stormwater culvert system. Therefore, this road will be closed to traffic from Monday 4th February until Wednesday 20th February.

Drivers are encouraged to drive carefully and to be cautious when nearing the zone, while being requested to follow the given directions.

We thank the public for their cooperation during these improvement works, forming part of the Mqabba Regeneration Project .

Transport Malta will carry out asphalting works in Triq Marina Tal-Pieta` as from 20:00hrs this evening. The Authority had removed the old blocked culvert that was causing flooding on this stretch of the road and installed a new one.


To reduce traffic inconvenience, between 20:00hrs and 23:00hrs, works will be carried out on one lane so that the road will remain accessible in both directions.  After 23:00hrs, at times, the road will not be accessible. The road will re-open early morning.

Transport Malta urges drivers to avoid the area during works, to follow temporary directional signs and officials’ instructions on site and to drive carefully.

Works will commence at 20:00hrs until 05:00hrs and are expected to continue during the following nights.  During works, this part of the road will be closed to traffic.  The road will be fully accessible in both directions, during the day.


Transport Malta urges drivers to use alternative routes and follow directions, precautions and speed limits as indicated on the temporary signs on site.  The Authority urges drivers to drive carefully for their safety and the safety of workers on site.



Upgrading another main route to the south of Malta


During the next few nights, Transport Malta will be resurfacing parts of Triq l-Ewwel Titjira 1915, which forms part of the main road link towards Żurrieq, Mqabba, Safi, Kirkop and Qrendi.

During the first phase of works, contractors will be removing the existing road surface, between the roundabout next to the airport and the Kirkop tunnels, to replace it with new layers of asphalt. Works will commence tonight, Monday 9th April, and will continue every night, between 8 pm and 5 am the following morning, until Thursday 12th April. Whilst some lanes along this road will be closed to road users whilst the works are in progress, the road will still remain accessible in both directions, at all times. During the day, no works will be taking place and all lanes of this road will be available as usual.

Drivers and other road users travelling in this area are encouraged to following the temporary lane diversion signs and the instructions of the traffic management officials on site. 

These resurfacing works are another phase in the ongoing project to improve the quality and safety of one of the main links between the central part of Malta, in Ħamrun and Qormi, towards this southern part of the Island, which includes several localities as well as strategic sites such as the Malta International Airport. During the last few months, the Authority has redesigned and optimised several roundabouts along this route, developed additional lanes and resurfaced many of the roads used by thousands of commuters travelling in this direction. At the moment, contractors are also rebuilding the roundabout next to St Vincent de Paule Residence, before commencing the rebuilding of the road connected to it. This arterial Road, Triq Hal Luqa, will be redesigned to be widened with additional lanes. 

Transport Malta would like to thank the public for its cooperation in its ongoing effort to improve the quality of the Maltese road network.
