Kappara: Removal of the central strip


In the coming days, Kappara contractor will remove the central strip in Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli.  Works will commence today after 20:30hrs. During the night, road will be on reduced lanes in both directions. During the day, one lane will be closed direction to Imsida, at times.

To avoid complete road closure and inconvenience, the central strip will be removed in a sequence of stretches. During works on the central strip, the existing electricity poles will also be shifted. This means that a separate traffic plan will not be required to dismantle the electricity poles.

Drivers are encouraged to  abide to the restricted speed limit of 30km/hr, follow temporary signs and respect workers on site.  We also encourage drivers to visit to get familiar with alternative routes and avoid the area.
