Kappara roundabout open for vehicles

As from today, vehicles can use the newly formed Kappara roundabout to go between Gżira and San Ġwann.  The link between the two towns, which was severed when the Kappara Project started a number of months ago, has been restored. 

Personnel have completed the asphalting work at the roundabout yesterday and painted the line markings this morning, to allow vehicle access through the roundabout and unimpeded access on both flyovers.

Drivers can now avail themselves of most of the functionality of the new junction, using both flyovers to go between the Paceville area and Valletta directly, without being disturbed by traffic crossing between San Ġwann and Gżira, as used to happen before this project.

One sliproad will remain inaccessible for the time being.  The slip road between San Ġwann and St. Julian’s will remain closed until the retaining wall of the nearby houses is completed, over the next few days. 

Transport Malta urges drivers to drive carefully through the site as personnel will continue to install street furnishings along the site.
