Transport Malta will be resurfacing Triq is-Sebħ which forms part of the Marsa Ħamrun bypass, direction to the tunnels of Santa Venera and direction to Marsa, as from this evening. This is phase 1 of the project.
Works will commence at 20:00hrs until 05:00hrs and are expected to continue during the following nights. During works, this part of the road will be closed to traffic. The road will be fully accessible in both directions, during the day.
Transport Malta urges drivers to use alternative routes and follow directions, precautions and speed limits as indicated on the temporary signs on site. The Authority urges drivers to drive carefully for their safety and the safety of workers on site.
The preparatory works for the beginning of the second phase of the Marsa Junction Project will continue at night between Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st February, along parts of Triq Aldo Moro.
Tonight’s works along this arterial thoroughfare, which include the dismantling of some of the existing vehicle restraint systems between the north- and south-bound lanes, will start at 2100hrs on Tuesday to be ready before dawn the following morning.
The road will remain open to vehicular traffic in all directions, at all times. However, road users are encouraged to follow the traffic directions and minor lane deviations marked by temporary signs to ensure their safety as well as that of other commuters and the workers on site. Transport Malta officials will be stationed in the area to guide road users as well.
Whilst regretting any inconvenience caused, Transport Malta would like to thank the public for its cooperation during the implementation of this project.
The three-phase, EU-funded Marsa Junction Project includes the construction of new roads, seven flyover structures, pedestrian pathways, bicycle lanes, park and ride facilities and other developments to upgrade the busiest node of the Maltese road network. Through this investment, the existing complex traffic lights system will be eliminated, making way for dedicated, uninterrupted lanes for each of the several routes that converge at this junction.
The first phase of the project, including the demolition of the old factories on part of the site is nearing completion. The project architects and administrators are now commencing the second phase, which will include the development of several new lanes along Triq Aldo Moro and other nearby roads as well as the building of the underground distribution systems required for water, electricity, sewage and telecommunications services, as well as the project’s stormwater infrastructure. Later this year, contractors will also start the third phase of this project, to construct the seven flyover structures and complete all the other facilities.
This project is co-financed through the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility.

Tomorrow morning, the contractor will start preparing the site, Triq Aldo Moro, for the second phase of the Marsa Project.
The Contractor will be using three lanes of Triq Aldo Moro tomorrow morning between 06:00 and 08:30. During these times, traffic will keep flowing through one lane.
We ask drivers to kindly drive carefully, follow the temporary signs and the instructions of officials on site.
During the second phase of the project, which will commence in the coming weeks, the contractor will widen part of Triq Aldo Moro and improve Triq il-Gvern Lokali. Throughout this phase, the contractor will also build a number of service culverts.
This is another important phase of the Marsa Junction Project, a project that will drastically improve the busiest junction in Malta.
Transport Malta will be removing a damaged road sign structure in Triq il-Labour Marsa tonight.
A heavy vehicle has damaged the structure, jeopardising its integrity. Transport Malta will thus remove the structure to safeguard the safety of road users. The structure consists of poles on either side of the four-lane road and a strut with signs, fixed to the poles across the whole road.
Most of the heavy machinery will operate from the Freedom Press site, to minimise disruption. However, the road will be partially closed between 21:00 and 03:00 tonight, for safety reasons.
Transport Malta will also be taking the opportunity to refresh a number of road markings on the same road.
We urge all drivers to drive carefully and follow the instructions of officials on site.
Whilst the extensive road works are ongoing, asphalting works in part of Triq l-Ingiered direction to Ħal Qormi, will resume this evening.
Tonight between 19:00hrs and 05:00hrs, this part of the road from the junction leading to Triq l-Imdina or Triq L-Iljun will be closed to traffic.
We regret any inconvenience and advise drivers to seek alternative routes and follow instructions by the officials on site.
Phase 1 of Asphalting works in Triq l-Ingiered il-Marsa
Following the progress of the extensive road works in Marsa, Transport Malta will be asphalting Triq l-Ingiered and part of Triq il-Marsa. Phase one will start tonight between 19:00hrs and 05:00hrs.
During works, this area will be closed to traffic. Public transport and vehicles giving service to the Residence of St. Vincent de Paule and to Għammieri, may still access the area from Ħal Luqa and exit from the same road.
We regret any inconvenience and appreciate the public’s cooperation to seek alternative routes and follow instructions by the officials on site.
