What is next for the Coast Road?


The Coast Road project is going on at full swing.  Here is a quick update by project leader Architect Kylie Borg Marks.

The part between Għallis and Magħtab has been completely asphalted; all three layers of asphalt.  Next week, a carriageway between Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq and White Rocks will be completely asphalted.

Coast Road – New Traffic Arrangements

Triq il-Kosta between Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq and Triq Martin Luther King will be closed for traffic between Monday 27 July at 10:00hrs till Friday 31 July at 05:00hrs.

Access for Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq residents and commercial outlets will remain unobstructed from Naxxar.  There will be no access from Pembroke.

Vehicles from L-Imsida are encouraged to use Triq Tas-Sliema from Kappara Junction.  A route from Ta’ L-Ibraġġ in Swieqi to Triq tal-Balal will also be available.

Vehicles from St. Paul’s Bay will be diverted through Burmarrad or through Triq is-Salini up to it-Telgħa T’Alla w’Ommu.  One can also pass through Triq ir-Ramla in Magħtab. 

Public Transport

Shuttle Service

Since the regular routes will not be going through Triq il-Kosta, Malta Public Transport will be offering a shuttle service between Buġibba and Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq.

Routes 12 and 222 will not go through Triq il-Kosta but will pass through Triq is-Salina, Telgħa t’Alla u Ommu towards San Ġwann then towards the tunnels for Triq Mikiel Anton Vassalli and Paceville to proceed with the usual route.

Route X1 will go through Triq is-Salina, it-Telgħa t’Alla u Ommu and Għargħur Bypass as well.  The bus will turn through Triq il-Wied towards Iklin for Birkikara Bypass and University where the route will proceed as usual.
