Transport Malta addressing flooding issues in Tal-Pieta`

Transport Malta will start removing a blocked culvert and install a new one in Triq Marina Tal-Pieta`, from tonight.  The works, spread on three consecutive nights, will commence at 23:30hrs and be completed by 04:30hrs.

The blocked culvert is, following rain showers, causing flooding on this stretch of road.  The Authority’s intervention will help address the flooding issues residents and road users are experiencing.

The north-bound carriageway, taking vehicles from Valletta towards Msida and Birkirkara, will be closed during these hours at night.  Vehicles will be diverted onto Triq id-Duluri, before reaching Tal-Pieta` creek, and can then head towards GF Abela Junior College and down Triq Marina again. Vehicles travelling on the south-bound carriageway, towards Valletta, will not be affected.

 

At a later stage, Transport Malta will be completing the installation and replacement of the culvert through works on the southbound carriageway.

Transport Malta urges drivers to avoid the area when possible, to follow temporary direction signs, officials’ instructions on site and to drive carefully.
