Kappara: the second bridge

The remaining eight steel girders that will support the bridge deck and that will be placed throughout the whole extent of the flyover, will be transported from Marsa to Kappara at night tomorrow Saturday and on Monday 15th, Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th of May.

The trailers will leave Dock 7 in Marsa at 19:30hrs and will proceed from Triq il-Labour, Triq Aldo Moro, Marsa-Ħamrun bypass, Santa Venera tunnels, Triq Reġjonali and Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  The trailer will be driving on the right hand side carriageway since it is easier to manoeuvre. These roads will be closed in segments to allow drivers to drive through alternative routes. 

During the night of Sunday 14th, workers will be welding the girders on site, therefore access to Kappara is expected to be closed between 21:00hrs until early morning during the nights between Saturday 13th and Wednesday 17th of May 2017.

Police and Transport Malta officers will be closing the segments and guiding drivers to bypass the closed segments through alternative routes. 

Personnel from Civil Protection, and the contractor will be making the route as well to cater for eventualities. 


Whilst apologising for the inconvenience, we ask drivers to collaborate with officials on the road and follow their instructions.
