‘Marsa Junction Project half completed’ – Minister Ian Borg

Transport and Infrastructure Minister Ian Borg announced during a media conference that 50% of the Marsa Junction Project has been completed.

Dr Borg stated that the first structures were inaugurated just over a month ago, and the beams for the third and longest flyover, which was scheduled to open by end January, are being put in place.

Minister Borg added that this will open instead at the end of December, a month before schedule.

It was stated during the media conference that this will be the longest flyover, and will create a direct link to the North between Aldo Moro Road and Santa Luċija Avenue.

The surface will consist of 65 concrete beams along a 227-metre route, the length of two football pitches. In fact, some of the beams for this structure, which have been put in place today, are the longest concrete beams being used in this project, amounting to over 31 metres. Of these, there is a total of 14 beams.

It was also explained that the flyover will rest on 16 columns, 12 of which have already been built, and 66 concrete columns have been embedded underground for the foundations. This when the highest part of the surface will be nearly 16 metres above the level of the road passing below it.
