New road in Marsa Junction Project to be completed next week

Infrastructure Malta is working tirelessly to open the new road of the Marsa Junction Project next week, in lieu of August when it was due to be completed, thereby ensuring that Garibaldi Street will no longer be closed.

More than 70% of the Marsa Junction project is ready so Infrastructure Malta is working on opening a new road next week which will allow Garibaldi Street, one of the main traffic arteries in the south of Malta, to reopen. The new two-kilometre-long two-lane road will pass under the new flyovers of this junction to create a direct connection from Sir Paul Boffa Avenue to Aldo Moro Street in a northbound direction.

In comments to Television Malta the Minister of Transport Infrastructure and Capital Projects Ian Borg said that the contractor was asked to intensify his resources on site, so that the work could be done in less time so that the road could open immediately. He said that recent works with lanes closing had led to the increase in traffic congestion. He said that he understood people’s frustration and had therefore spoken to Transport Malta and Infrastructure Malta, hoping for a solution.

“I spoke to Infrastructure Malta and Transport Malta about people’s grief especially about what happened this week in the mornings, and we are working to open new lanes at the beginning of next week where we will immediately see an unraveling of the situation. ”

At the same time, the asphalt coating work on three of the seven flyovers that Infrastructure Malta is developing through this project is well underway, so that they can be used by the end of next month. While all the project’s roads will be ready by autumn, the project as a whole is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
