Drivers have been requested that up till Saturday, when possible, they should avoid to drive through the northbound lane in Regional Road as this will be closed from late in the afternoon till early in the morning.
Infrastructure Malta on Monday notified that the lane from Santa Venera towards Tal-Qroqq and Kappara will be closed between 5.00pm and 5.00am.
TVM is informed that in fact a great traffic congestion was created yesterday evening which extended up to the Imrieħel flyovers.
If drivers take this direction they should follow the signs towards alternative routes from Triq Salvu Psaila to Birkirkara or from Valley Road Imsida towards Tal-Qroqq and Kappara.
Infrastructure Malta stated that this is the last phase of the Regional Road project, which is being widened to six lanes together with the upgrading of its seven junctions.
