Works in University Tunnel

University tunnel reopens tomorrow

The University Tunnel, a route for the sports complex and Imsida, will reopen tomorrow morning.

For the past weeks, the tunnel was not accessible because of ongoing works. Transport Malta chose to rebuild the University Tunnel, during the works for the Kappara Project.  The tunnel was not part of the project however the Authority opted to rebuild it to avoid that Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli is dug up for future maintenance of the tunnel.  

Transport Malta built a wider and safer tunnel which is better suited for today’s University needs.  The tunnel was completed with the works for the Kappara Project.  The University of Malta then asked Transport Malta to also widen the road that leads to the tunnel.  Thus, the Authority started widening this road immediately.

The works are now completed.  The students, and those who visit the University can start using the new road and tunnel to go from University towards Imsida and the other way round, from tomorrow.
