Transport Malta regrets the inconvenience caused with the closure of the Coast Road. The issues this morning highlight the importance of the Coast Road and hence our commitment to upgrade it.
This part of the Coast Road had to be closed completely. This road closure will improve the deadline by around three weeks and will avoid future total closures in more critical times.
Two layers of asphalt, 120mm in all, are being applied to the highest European standard. Traffic cannot pass on the binder course. Works and asphalting continued during the night yesterday.
Transport Malta urges drivers to avoid the area and use alternative routes, through Mġarr Bypass, Mosta and Birkirkara.
Transport Malta is vigilant on the working contractors, who are collaborating fully. Works are on schedule and the road will be open again on Friday morning.
