Attention: Scam


Someone is sending an email pretending it is from Transport Malta.  The email is asking for a copy of the id card, a bank statement mobile or utility bill.  Needless to say, do not send this information.  The email is not from Transport Malta.

Buying a car?

Works on stormwater system completed

Triq Ghajn Tuffieha

Works on stormwater system in Mġarr

The works announced yesterday on the stormwater system have been completed.  Workers will use a crane once more to pick up the machinery.  Hence, for safety reasons, Triq Għajn Tuffieħa in Mġarr will be closed once again between 02:00 and 04:00 tonight. Kindly seek alternative routes.

Resurfacing of Kirkop Junction

Transport Malta will resurface Kirkop Junction.  Works will start tonight and continue the following night. On both nights, works will start at 20:30 and finish early in the morning to minimise traffic disruption.

The junction will remain accessible to vehicles but parts of the carriageways will be restricted at different times.  

Kindly avoid the area when possible. Follow the temporary signs and official’s instructions.

Public Transport – new improvements


Constructive meeting on Public Transport with Local Councils

The minister for Transport and Infrastructure together with Transport Malta’s Chairman, called for a meeting with all mayors to discuss public transport.  Most Local Councils were present and a constructive discussion ensued.

A representative of the operator and officials from Transport Malta were present for the meeting.  Most complaints received revolved around the punctuality of the service rather than the routes themselves.  The operator will be looking into the matter and taking steps to resolve the issues.

A number of changes in Mater Dei will be implemented in the upcoming weeks.

Very few passengers boarded at St. Luke’s hospital on Mater Dei routes.  The routes were thus unnecessarily lengthened.  The buses will no longer stop at St. Luke’s hospital.  Mater Dei Routes will be around 15 minutes faster. Instead Route 122 between Valletta and St. Luke’s hospital will have its frequency increased.

Route X1 of 06:45 will no longer go through Mellieħa centre to reduce the time it takes to reach Mater Dei hospital and University from Ċirkewwa. This follows suggestions by Gozitan students.

Transport Malta and the Mater Dei administration identified a different location for parked buses at the University interchange.  The current congestion that results in particular times will thus be reduced.

Mater Dei routes, route X1 and X2 will serve Mater Dei hospital and University.  Passengers will no longer need to change buses at the University interchange.

T’Alla u Ommu road is open


T’Alla u Ommu road is now open for vehicles

Transport Malta would like to advise that T’Alla u Ommu Hill is now open to traffic.

Drivers are advised to drive with caution as there are still ongoing works and investigations on the road between T’Alla u Ommu Hill and Triq is-Salini. Substantial works to the storm water system within this road has been carried out.

Given the extensive damage encountered, it is not excluded that Transport Malta will have to carry out further works based on tests, over the coming months.
