Kappara: Sliema Road, Gżira to open in both directions


Vehicles coming from Sliema Road Gżira can, from tomorrow, access Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  This access was closed since the start of the Kappara Project.  Major works on the East side of Kappara Project have been completed and drivers can start availing themselves of the newly constructed stretch of road.

Reconstruction of Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli

Transport Malta will start reconstructing the upper part of Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  For a few metres, traffic from Reggie Miller to the South Bound sliproad will proceed on one lane.

Vehicles coming from Regional Road or from Triq Reggie Miller can no longer use the crossing towards San Ġwann.  They need to turn at the Skate Park Junction or use alternative routes. 

Kappara junction remains a construction site, drive carefully, follow signs and keep to the 30Km/h speed limit.

Kappara: Further work on bridge deck


Transport Malta will continue placing precast concrete on the second bridge of Kappara throughout tomorrow.  The contractor will use a crane from where vehicles coming from the direction of the University usually go towards St. Julians.  Vehicles, between 05:00 and 18:00, will go through Sliema Road towards Triq il-Ħuttaf to emerge back on Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  Big vehicles will go through Naxxar Road San Ġwann.

We ask drivers to avoid the area as far as possible by using Birkirkara Bypass or Rue D’Argens.  Kappara Junction is a construction site with numerous workers, drive carefully and keep to the 30Km/h speed limit.

Works on Wied Għollieqa Bridge


The Kappara Project contractor will be doing works on the structure beneath Wied Għollieqa Bridge.  Works will start tomorrow at 08:30 and is expected to be completed on Friday.  For worker’s safety, vehicles going towards St. Julian’s, from Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli, will go through one lane instead of two as usual.  Both lanes will be open during the morning rush hour

The road is a construction site and appeal drivers to drive within the speed, follow traffic signs and official’s instructions.
