The roads which lead to St Julian’s for some time were closed to traffic following an accident which happened at 1pm this afternoon.
The accident happened between Triq Gort and Triq San Ġorġ when the hydraulic tank was ripped off a ready-mix truck. As a result, the liquid which was in the tank ended up on the road and posed a danger to drivers passing through there because the road became very slippery.
Members of the Civil Protection Department and workers from the Cleansing and Maintenance Directorate were called to the scene to throw powder on the spill to absorb the liquid and to clean up the area.
Shortly after the incident and once the danger was removed, one lane was opened to traffic.
