Construction of new flyover between Luqa and Kirkop begins

Infrastructure Malta has begun the construction of the foundations of the new flyover between Luqa and Kirkop as part of the Kirkop Tunnel project and the Airport Intersection.

In a post on social media, Infrastructura Malta said that from tomorrow Tuesday 27 July until further notice, one of the two lanes heading South of Triq l-Ewwel Titjira, from the Airport roundabout in the direction of Kirkop Tunnels, will be closed to traffic.

The Authority has urged drivers to use the alternative route from Triq Ħal Farruġ where possible, which was opened last week after construction works.

Last April, Infrastructure Malta started digging the underpass of the new 200-metre roundabout and the two 120-metre ramps.

This will create a direct and safer link between the southbound and northbound carriageways of Aviation Avenue and Hal-Far Road.
