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


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.
