Buġibba / Qawra junction
Works ahead of schedule, junction will remain accessible tonight.
Asphalting works at the Qawra junction were carried out last night. Works proceeded faster than originally planned. The contractor was able to complete the works which were scheduled to be carried out tonight as well. Thus, the junction will remain open for vehicles tonight.
Works will continue on Saturday 3rd October, as planned.
The junction will be closed from 5am till 1pm (northbound) and 8pm (southbound)
The final layer of asphalt will be applied on the junction. This phase is the most critical. Asphalting will be done during the day to ensure the best possible result.
The timing of the works is in sync with the ongoing weekend activities in the area which require north bound access in the early evening and full access later on.
The junction will be closed to all traffic on Saturday 3rd October 2015 at 5am.
The northbound traffic will then be able to drive across this junction from 1pm onwards.
Southbound traffic will in turn be granted access from 8pm onwards.
Drivers are urged to use alternative routes and avoid the area completely.
Those drivers that need to access the area around this junction are kindly asked to follow the directions that they will be given around the works.
